Global Ophthalmic Devices Market Report 2022: Market to Reach $68.2 Billion by 2027 - Consistent Efforts by Healthcare Organizations to Fuel Ophthalmic Devices Market


Dublin, March 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Ophthalmic Devices Market (By Applications, Products, End Users, Regions), Impact of COVID-19, Major Deals, Trends, Key Players Analysis, Recent Developments - Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global ophthalmic devices market is predicted to reach US$ 68.2 Billion by 2027

The ophthalmic devices are designed for diagnostics, surgical, and vision correction purposes. These devices are continuously gaining increased importance and adoption due to high prevalence of various ophthalmic diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, and other vision related issues.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO): Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment or blindness, of whom at least 1 billion have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. Therefore, increasing number of eye related disorders propel demand for vision care devices, which in turn propels growth of the ophthalmic devices market.

However, the elements such as the high cost of ophthalmic devices and dearth of skilled professionals with expertise in ophthalmic surgery are projected to hamper the growth of the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Ophthalmic Devices Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has become a global stress test. As the number of people infected with the virus continues to rise around the world, uncertainties about global economic growth increases.

The COVID-19 pandemic has restricted the growth of the ophthalmic devices market, primarily in Europe, Asia and the U.S., by social restrictions and other precautionary measures taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as governments began lifting social restrictions, the negative trend in the revenues of these businesses began to level off and stabilize prior to the third quarter of 2020.

In the years to come, ophthalmologists are likely to witness an increase in influx of patients, hence driving the ophthalmic devices market.
