The increasing cases of diabetic retinopathy support global diabetes associated ophthalmic treatment industry

The number of adults with diabetic retinopathy globally was forecast to reach 103.12 million in 2020; by 2045, that number is expected to rise to 160.50 million. Africa (35%) and North America and the Caribbean (33%) had the highest frequency of diabetic retinopathy, whereas South and Central America had the lowest (13%). Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is closely linked to the rise in diabetes prevalence. Diabetes was formerly regarded to be a disease of the wealthy, but it has now spread to both developed and developing countries in epidemic proportions. Diabetes affects at least 366 million people globally, and the number is expected to rise due to an aging global population, urbanization, rising obesity rates, and sedentary lifestyles. Although recent advances in diabetes management have reduced macrovascular mortality, more diabetic patients are living long enough to develop DR and vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy (VTDR).

The rapid surge in the number of the elderly population that is highly prone to diabetes is also expected to propel the demand for the industry. One in every six people on the earth will be 60 years old or older by 2030. By 2050, the number of individuals aged 60 and up will have increased from 1 billion in 2020 to 1.4 billion. The world's population of individuals aged 60 and older will have doubled by 2050 (2.1 billion). The number of persons aged 80 and more is expected to triple between 2020 and 2050, reaching 426 million.

However, the extensive approval time for ophthalmic drugs and the lack of skilled ophthalmologists present in the world are the factors that may restrain the market from growing. Furthermore, increasing investments in diabetes treatment, and the growing number of government initiatives to spread awareness for diabetes treatment are expected to generate certain growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.
