This report studies the global ophthalmology drugs and devices market, with forecast to 2017.
The global ophthalmology market witnessed a dip during the economic downturn in 2008 and 2009; however, it is poised to grow at a stable rate mainly due to an increasing aging population, large pool of patients with eye diseases, changing demographics and geographical trends, and increased focus on combination therapies of drugs. However, lack of awareness of eye diseases hinders the growth of this market. The drugs market will grow at a slower pace mainly due to the combined effect of loss of patent protection for several drugs and drying pipeline. This market is also considered by formulation types, which include capsules, gels, eye drops, ointment, and eye solutions.
The geographies covered in this study are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the world (RoW).
