Main market trends

The Glaucoma Surgery Devices Segment is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share

Glaucoma surgery devices are used in the treatment of glaucoma disorder. Glaucoma is characterized by progressive and irreversible damage to the optic nerve and is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in India.

According to 2021 statistics from HelpMeSee Foundation, 5.80% of the population in India is affected by glaucoma. Thus, the number of patients in India suffering from glaucoma is increasing with the growing population. These patients undergo surgery to treat glaucoma and contribute to the growing demand for surgical devices for glaucoma, including glaucoma drainage devices. Glaucoma drainage devices are the most commonly used second-line surgical procedures for glaucoma.

In addition, the introduction of micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) has allowed better management of patients with mild to moderate glaucoma. The field of MIGS has grown rapidly over the past decade, due to the ability of eye surgeons to adapt surgical approaches. This has increased the usage of MIGS surgery devices in India. MIGS devices offer reduced surgery time, shorter recovery periods, affordability, and low risk of post-surgical complications.

Moreover, currently, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) and Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT) are the commonly preferred glaucoma procedures in India, indicating a steady demand for glaucoma surgery devices used in these procedures in the country. Thus, the increased demand for glaucoma surgery devices owing to the aforementioned factors is expected to drive the market growth.
