Global Markets for Surgical Ophthalmology in 2013


Dublin, Nov. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Markets for Surgical Ophthalmology in 2013" report to their offering.

The global market for products used in surgical ophthalmology-which includes diagnostic devices, surgical systems (e.g., lasers and phacoemulsification machines), intraocular lens (IOL) implants and disposables, accessories, and aftermarket revenues from services and parts-was valued at $7.4 billion in 2012.

Growth is expected through 2017, when the market reaches $9 billion, due to continued penetration of the population with cataracts (especially in emerging markets) as a result of efforts among national and international organizations to reduce blindness. Refractive surgeries will also contribute to revenue growth, although economic headwinds in key national markets will limit the performance of these procedures.

Other key trends, including pricing in local markets and product mix, will have key effects on competitive shares and product adoption. Critical issues covered in this report include:

  • The competitive landscape for these products in the U.S. and international markets
  • Discreet procedure volumes for ophthalmological surgeries, segmented by region
  • And quantitative factors including pricing trends, licensing fees, and the revenue contribution from systems, disposables, services, and accessories.
