Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Ophthalmology Drugs Market to 2022 - Angiogenesis Modulators and Gene Therapies to Boost Overall Revenue within the Forecast Period" report to their offering.
Global revenues for the ophthalmology market are forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.48%, from $13.7 billion in 2015 to $26 billion in 2022.
Ophthalmology is a therapy area that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases associated with the eyes and visual system. Most eye disorders occur over a long period of time, and are initially asymptomatic or cause only a slight decrease in vision. However, over time this becomes quite marked. Ophthalmologic disorders cannot currently be cured, and treatment is aimed at managing the disease indication in order to reduce the severity of symptoms and slow progression.
Angiogenesis inhibitors are the most effective and most common therapies used in ophthalmology; this class of compounds has been the most commercially successful in the past decade, with products such as Eylea and Lucentis generating strong annual revenues. Although there are many generics available across the majority of ophthalmology disorders, there are a number of premium products that attract substantial revenues - in particular Eylea, Lucentis, Lumigan and Restasis. The report focuses on five key indications within ophthalmology: glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic macular edema, diabetic retinopathy and dry eye syndrome. There are currently no therapeutic options available for the treatment of dry AMD, increasing the need for extensive R&D within this area.
Although there is a high degree of failure and uncertainty within the R&D of ophthalmology drugs, the number of drugs in the pipeline is very high, at 734. The majority of pipeline products are novel active pharmaceutical ingredients, with only a small proportion of products being either generics or repositioned from other indications. This shows progression in terms of the variety of different molecules being developed as therapeutic agents within the ophthalmology pipeline. The expected growth of the ophthalmology market over the forecast period is attributed to the approval of new drugs, as well as rising prevalence.
