Dry eye syndrome drugs market in EMEA

EMEA holds a significant portion of the global dry eye syndrome drugs market due to world-class healthcare infrastructure and facilities of European countries, especially the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. The growing geriatric population has led to the high incidence rate of various disorders in the region, dry eye disorder being one of them.

The Middle East and Africa are expected to drive the growth of the market in the region owing to recent advancements in the healthcare industry. The African region has been long deprived of basic healthcare facilities leading to high mortality rate from various diseases. However, today the region benefits due to substantial aid from government and non-government organizations. This is expected to boost the demand for dry eye syndrome drugs in the region.

Dry eye syndrome drugs market in APAC

APAC is expected to witness the highest CAGR owing to the growing cases of dry eye syndrome in countries such as China, India, and Japan. The markets in India, China, Japan, and other Asian countries are also expected to grow at a fast pace with the growing aging population in these countries.

“China has the world’s largest aging population owing to the huge population of the country and adoption of various population control measures undertaken by the country such as the earlier “one child per family policy.” Increasing aging population leads to an increase in the rate of risk factors for eye diseases, including dry eye syndrome, thereby boosting market growth,” says Sapna.

The top vendors in the global dry eye syndrome drugs market as highlighted in this market research analysis are:

  • Allergan
  • Novartis
  • Otsuka Holdings
