LONDON--()--The growing incidence of ophthalmic diseases such as keratosis, cataract, and glaucoma is significantly increasing the number of surgeries across the world. This is increasing the demand and encouraging companies to launch single-use ophthalmic knives that are made of different materials and varied sharpness. This helps companies enhance their product portfolio and strengthen their market position, which is expected to be a key driver for the growth of the ophthalmic knives market during the forecast period. Furthermore, this industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product (reusable ophthalmic knives and single-use ophthalmic knives) and geography (Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Competitive vendor landscape

The global ophthalmic knives market is highly competitive with major vendors such as Bausch Health, Diamatrix Ltd., HAI Laboratories, Inc., MANI, INC., Novartis AG, and Sidapharm, competing based on price, quality, and market presence.

“The minimally invasive technique is gaining immense popularity over the last few years, owing to advantages such as minimized cost, pre- and post-surgical diagnosis and medication, and reduced hospital stay. Furthermore, the adoption of robotic platforms is also increasing by surgeons to improve surgical precision and perform complicated surgeries. These factors are expected to increase the demand for ophthalmic knives, which will fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
