Vitreous Tamponades Market By Type (Gas Tamponades, Liquid Tamponades) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

In the recent years, vitreoretinal surgery has made prominent progress with respect to the drugs, materials and instrumentation. Several ophthalmic conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, proliferative vitreoretinopathy and diabetic retinopathy total or partial vitreous removal. At present, permanent and temporary vitreous substitutes have structural function for ensuring retinal adherence following retinopexy or for control of intraocular hemorrhages and maintenance of intraocular pressure. It is anticipated that, the future polymers used as vitreous substitutes will favorably interact with the intraocular anatomy along with ensuring appropriate intraocular drug distribution. However, one of the most significant challenges is with respect to the control of immune reactions modifying stability of substitutes and functionality of intraocular structures.

Gas tamponades to continue to dominate the global market

Since its introduction, intraocular gas tamponades have been a vital part of vitreoretinal surgery. At present, sulfur hexafluoride and perfluoropropane are most commonly used in treatment of complicated vitreoretinal diseases. They are heavier than air, odorless, nontoxic and colorless and retain their tamponades effect owing to better surface tension. Both the gas types were approved by the USFDA in 1993 for being used for pneumatic retinopexy. Sulfur hexafluoride is commonly used retinal surgeries, as the gas expands in the cavity within one to two days of the surgery and remains there for a period of one to two weeks. Additionally, perfluoropropane expands to four times of the original volume in three to five days of injection and remains in the vitreous cavity for six to eight weeks. Due to their better buoyancy, gas tamponades assist in maintaining the desired position of retina against the RPE; however, this effect is restricted to the upper part and therefore does not affect the inferior retina. The adverse effects of gas tamponades is increase of pressure during surgery and until a few days after injection, cataract formation and endothelial changes in the cornea. The use of liquid materials as adjunctive agents in retinal surgery plays a prominent role in treating retinal detachment. The use of liquid materials as adjunct to vitreo-retinal surgery has an important role in ensuring retinal reattachment. Such products are often used in intraoperative settings for reinstating intraocular volume and separating retina adherent membranes.

Asia Pacific to witness rapid growth in demand for vitreous tamponades

In 2017, North America is estimated as the largest regional market for vitreous tamponades, followed by Europe. Widespread usage of vitreous tamponades in ocular surgeries, greater awareness and favorable reimbursements are the key factors that support the dominance of these regions. On the other hand, these regions also witness fastest adoption of new technologies and methods in the mainstream operations due to favorable regulations, better purchasing powers and domicile of major market players. On the other hand, Asia Pacific market shall be advancing at rapid growth rate registering higher than the global benchmark. Rapid growth of the healthcare infrastructure in the region, and high prevalence of diabetes and therefore diabetic retinopathy along with improving awareness in the healthcare providers are supporting the pace of Asia Pacific market. Furthermore, the development of Asia Pacific market as a hub for medical tourism will open additional growth opportunities in the region.
