Dry eye syndrome treatment includes different varieties of therapeutics that are used to treat the syndrome. These therapeutics substantially lessen the different symptoms related to dry eye syndrome and thereby enhance the quality of life of the patients. Historically, the market for dry eye syndrome treatment registered an annual growth rate of 6.2% from 2016 to 2021 and reached US$ 4.52 billion in 2021. The forecasted growth for the market can be attributed to factors such as the rising prevalence of dry eye all over the world, an upsurge in product innovation and development, a spike in the number of LASIK surgeries, and swift development of the eyedrop market. The growing geriatric population worldwide also serves as a prime driver for the market as eyes release fewer tears in the elderly resulting in greater evaporation and dryness.

In recent years, elevated usage of contact lenses often leads to dryness in the eyes which encourages higher adoption rates of products that will ensure good health for the eyes. Additionally, the increasing awareness among the general population regarding dry eye syndrome and its symptoms will likely bolster market sales. The rapid growth of the eye infections treatment market across developing regions will also foster an environment of growth for the dry eye syndrome treatment market. The expansion of the dry eye remedies market in emerging economies and the heightened adoption of eyedrops by patients to relieve various symptoms will open avenues of growth for manufacturers of the dry eye syndrome treatment market.

In spite of the projected positive outlook, the dry eye syndrome treatment market will face its share of hardships. The stringent regulations regarding the drugs available for treatment and long-term treatment regimens will impede the market growth.  A general lack of awareness of eye issues and a dearth of certain products in emerging economies will also restrict the growth of the dry eye syndrome treatment market.
