Rising Screen Time in the Life of People is to Boost the Growth of Intraocular Lens Market

Most people's daily lives are now woven with screen time. Many people are unaware of how much time they spend staring at phone screens, computer screens, and television screens. People worldwide spend an average of 6 hours and 58 minutes every day in front of a screen. Since 2013, daily screen use has climbed by roughly 50 minutes per day. According to a new study, the average amount of time youngsters spend gazing at screens increased by 52% during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 The rise in time equates to an additional 84 minutes per day spent staring at televisions, computers, and phones. This is a significant increase from the pre-pandemic baseline of 162 minutes per day to 246 minutes during the pandemic.

Intraocular Lens Industry: Regional Overview

The global intraocular lens market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.

Growing Cases of Cataract is to Boost the Market Growth in North America Region

In the United States, age-related cataract affects more than 22 million people, with direct medical costs for cataract treatment anticipated to be USD the equivalent of $6.8 billion per year. The number of cataract patients is expected to reach 30 million by 2020. More than 25 million Americans in the United States have cataracts, a medical disorder in which the lens of the eye gradually becomes opaque, resulting in reduced vision.  According to the Prevent Blindness research "The Future of Vision," the number of blind people will rise to 38.5 million by 2032, and 45.6 million by 2050. Furthermore, the unhealthy lifestyle of people has significantly increased the chances of diabetics which further affects the eyes of people and increases the demand for intraocular lenses in the region.

The surge in Number of People Facing Gradual Blindness is to Elevate Market Growth in Europe

Over 30 million blind and partially sighted people are estimated to exist in geographical Europe. Moreover, one out of every thirty Europeans suffers from vision loss. There are four times the amount of partially sighted people as there are blind people in the region. According to the estimates, there are 30,000,000 visually handicapped people. This much greater figure accounts for the increasing prevalence of visual impairment among Europe's elderly population, which has proven challenging to precisely determine, as well as the fact that there are many people who suffer from different kinds of sight loss but either ignore it or choose not to declare their condition for personal reasons. Age-related retinal degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in Europe. Conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts can impair elderly vision.

Intraocular Lens Segmentation by Material

  • Polymethylmethacrylate
  • Silicon
  • Hydrophobic & Hydrophilic Acrylic Materials

On the basis of material, the intraocular lens market silicon segment is expected to garner the significant market revenue over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment is majorly attributed to the growing popularity of silicone hydrogel as the lens material. In the United States, around 65% of the lenses are made up of silicone hydrogel. In addition to this, on a global scale, around 72% of individuals who were fitted with soft contact lenses use silicone hydrogel contacts. This covers data from different countries during the last 15 years. One of the most significant advantages of silicone hydrogel lenses is that they reduce the probability of corneal hypoxia. When the cornea (the clear surface on the front of the eye) is not getting enough oxygen, this disease develops.

  • Ambulatory Surgery Centers
  • Ophthalmology Clinics
  • Eye Research Institutes
