USA, Canada, Europe, India and China are the biggest markets for the ophthalmic equipment and devices. With rapidly changing technology, ophthalmology practice will see significant growth in the coming years.
Global ophthalmology device market has emerged as one of the growing segments in medical devices market, due to increased demand of ophthalmology devices for treatment of eye diseases. Moreover, increasing prevalence of eye disorders, aging population, increasing government investment towards research activities and technical advancements are some of the key drivers for ophthalmology device market. Developing counties, such as China and India, have large number of aged people. Aged people are more susceptible towards eye diseases, such as cataract and age-related macular degeneration. This aging population requires more effective ophthalmology devices for the treatment of eye diseases.
