Market Synopsis

Macular degeneration market growth is being driven by rising diabetes prevalence and an aging population.

As per the research cited in the Lancet journal, the global prevalence rate of any age-related macular degeneration is 8.69%, with a higher prevalence rate in the Caucasian population followed by mongoloids. The growing geriatric population, smoking, obesity, genetics, diabetes, and other risk factors all contribute to the occurrence of macular degeneration. Diabetic retinopathy is a secondary disease manifestation occurring in elderly people with a previous history of diabetes. Endophthalmitis is growing at a faster rate owing to the rise in air and water pollution and eye trauma.

Excellent biocompatibility and impressive pharmacodynamic properties drive the anti-VEGF drug market.

Anti-VEGF is dominating the drug class segment for intravitreal injections. Drugs like bevacizumab (Avastin), ranibizumab (Lucentis), and others have been used as first-line therapy in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration and ocular vein occlusion since their commercialization in 2006. Its inherent features, such as excellent biocompatibility and impressive pharmacodynamic properties, have led to its increased popularity among ophthalmologists worldwide. Corticosteroids are used as an adjuvant medication to treat inflammation caused by eye infections. Antifungal drugs and antibiotics together are prescribed for eye infections such as endophthalmitis and retinitis.

The rising prevalence of eye disorders, combined with an affordable reimbursement scenario, is driving the growth of the intravitreal injectables market.

In the present situation, North America is responsible for 37% of the market share in the regional segment of the intravitreal injectables market. As per the statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 3.3 million Americans aged 40 years and older are blind or suffer from low vision. The rising prevalence of eye disorders, combined with an affordable reimbursement scenario, is driving market growth in North America. Europe accounts for 26% of the market due to the presence of thriving healthcare infrastructure as well as the headquarters of key players such as Novartis AG, Allergan, Inc., Alimera Sciences, F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd., and others, which drive the market's growth in Europe. Asia Pacific holds a 20% market share and is keen to capture the regional market in the near future on account of the supportive regulatory environment provided by healthcare agencies and the development of ophthalmic research centers providing optimum eye care.
