TAs per the Springer, in 2021, the prevalence of self-reported eye conditions was approximately 2.7% for glaucoma, 11.4% for cataract, and 3.8% for retinal degeneration respectively. This development will propel the number of vitreoretinal surgeries thereby driving the adoption of vitreoretinal surgery devices that would promote the industry growth. In addition to this, the growing geriatric population along with supportive government initiatives for augmenting awareness regarding eye-related disorders is further poised to render significant impact, influencing the product acceptance and vitreoretinal surgery devices market expansion.

However, uncertain reimbursement scenario and high cost associated with the vitreoretinal surgery devices may negatively impact the market progression. The cost pertaining to the acquisition of vitreoretinal surgery devices may range from USD 5,000 to USD 15,000. The high cost associated with vitreoretinal surgery devices may limit the acceptance rate, thereby limiting the industry expansion. Owing to cost intensive nature of vitreoretinal surgeries, these medical procedures are reimbursed by the Medicare services. Despite of this reimbursement for the procedures, the reimbursement concerning vitreoretinal surgery devices is fairly uncertain that might restrict the industry demand.

The COVID-19 pandemic has emerged as an unprecedented health concern that has rendered significant impact on the vitreoretinal surgery devices market value. The coronavirus outbreak has affected the global economy and several industrial structures including the healthcare sector. In order to minimize the further transmission of SARS-CoV-2 virus, national lockdowns were imposed, and emergencies were declared in several countries. Hospital admissions and services were offered to the COVID-19 affected patients on priority basis, with majority of the other medical procedures on halt. The U.S. declared a national emergency and postponed majority of the non-emergency surgical procedures in outpatient and inpatient settings. This has led to the delay in multiple medical procedures including vitreoretinal surgeries across various countries that has affected the market.

Growing geriatric population to amplify the vitreoretinal surgery devices market revenue

The rapidly aging population is anticipated to spur the industry progression in the coming years. The WHO data estimates that the geriatric population is slated to double in the years from 2015 to 2050. The elderly population aged above 60 years is poised to showcase threefold growth during 2010 and 2050, reaching about 1.3 billion. Moreover, as per the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) estimates, by the year 2050, approximately 25% individuals in Asia Pacific region will be aged more than 60 years. Eye-related disorders are increasingly prevalent among the elderly population as aging affects vision and the ability to focus.

The increasing elderly population affected with vision related conditions is set to fuel the vitreoretinal surgery devices market demand. The most frequent causes of vision impairment among the aging populace include the age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataract, and diabetic retinopathy among others. Due to the increasing susceptibility and impaired vision, the prevalence of these disorders is commonly profound in people aged 60 and above.


Rising prevalence of disorders such as AMD & cataract will stimulate the market growth

The photocoagulation lasers segment in the vitreoretinal surgery devices market exceeded USD 479 million in 2021. Photocoagulation lasers are applied in the treatment several eye disorders such the two leading causes of blindness in the U.S. including diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. These precise laser-sourced devices reduce the risk of vision loss by cauterizing ocular blood vessels.
