Ophthalmic Lasers Market is projected to increase from a valuation of US$ 884.3 Mn in 2022 to US$ 1.3 Bn by 2030 | Future Market Insights

The global ophthalmic lasers market is anticipated to grow from a market value of US$ 884.3 Mn in 2022 to US$ 1.3 Bn by 2030, expanding at a moderate CAGR of 5.4%.

Technological advancements have deeply penetrated every facet of the healthcare industry, and the ophthalmic lasers market growth is no exception. Over the years, ophthalmic disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, refractive errors, glaucoma, cataract and age related macular degeneration (AMD) have surged exponentially. This has accelerated demand for advanced surgical procedures.

The introduction of ophthalmic laser surgery has revolutionized ophthalmic care in unprecedented ways. Majority of these technologies are being deployed in cataract surgeries, attributed to the disorder’s widespread prevalence across all continents. Advancements such femtosecond laser surgeries have proven highly instrumental in streamlining ophthalmic procedures, offering lightning speed detection of faulty tissues.

Such reduced detection and treatment timeframes act as major growth catalysts for the global ophthalmic lasers market, which is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1.3 Bn by 2030.

Consumers have long placed a high importance on keeping good eye health in order to preserve their vision. The market size for ophthalmic laser machines is expanding, providing attractive prospects for ophthalmic laser producers thanks to rising spending on keeping good eye health and rising awareness of various ophthalmic disorders.

Growing consumer desire for minimally invasive laser treatments and the quick expansion of the eye infection treatment market have a significant impact on ophthalmic laser sales.

Ophthalmic lasers are special treatments used to repair damaged corneas and treat disorders that might impair vision, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Due to their safe, precise, and accurate character, they have grown to be highly sought-after goods utilised in surgical treatment for a variety of eye problems.

As diabetes incidence increases globally, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of prevalent ocular problems over the past few years, including cataract, glaucoma, and others. During the projected period, this is anticipated to offer a favourable environment for the leading producers of ophthalmic laser devices.

The market for ophthalmic laser devices is therefore growing as there is a growing preference for safe and efficient techniques like laser vision correction (LVC) to do away with the necessity for glasses or contact lenses.

During the evaluation period, it is also anticipated that the market for laser therapy equipment would thrive and that the popularity of minimally invasive surgeries will increase.

Ophthalmic laser sales made up around 41% of the US$ 2.0 Billion global market for laser therapy equipment in 2021, according to Future Market Insights (FMI).

Leading producers of ophthalmic lasers are anticipated to spend more on improved product designs and technological advancements in order to offer ophthalmologists cutting-edge products for use in routine ocular procedures. Due to this, demand for ophthalmic laser equipment will increase during the ensuing time.
