The global Glaucoma market has been growing rapidly for the past several years mainly due to innovation such as introduction of IOPtiMa, OTP-TX, anti-VEGF therapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT) laser photocoagulation, Rhopressa, latanoprost and Vesneo. Among the several varieties of drugs and surgeries available in the market, the demand for drugs such as Prostaglandins which includes Trabatan, Lumbigan are the highest due to its high efficiency in treating glaucoma. Vesneo has shown a superior intraocular pressure reduction effect on beta-blocker timolol, the most widely used comparator in registration trials for glaucoma, in two phase 3 studies.
Globally, the major factors contributing to the growth of Glaucoma treatment market is the higher number of glaucoma patients from the U.S, Europe and Japan. Novel therapies for glaucoma are constantly being investigated by research and development teams of various pharmaceutical companies, at different stages. It can be predicted that novel therapies that work in conjunction with current drugs, such as Prostaglandins, will likely be increasingly common in the near future.
Growth of the Glaucoma treatment market could also be attributed to North America where the number of patients suffering from glaucoma is the highest among the rest of the U.S and also from emerging markets such as France and Singapore driven by rapid increase of old age population. Moreover, the Asian market is expected to become a huge potential market for glaucoma surgery devices in the foreseeable future, as it is expected to grow at comparatively the fastest rates among all other regions. It is estimated that by 2020, 11 million individuals will have vision loss due to glaucoma.
