Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (OVD) Market Assessment and Industry Forecast Highlighting Growth Trends To 2027

Press Release

Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices are fundamental tools that are used in cataract surgery. They are designed to protect and coat delicate intraocular tissues and improve visualization. The global ophthalmic viscoelastic devices market is anticipated to reach USD 1,203.26 Mn at a CAGR of 11.6% by the end of the forecast period of 2017-2027, predicts Market Research Future (MRFR) in an in-depth study.

OVDs have come to be considered a standard if not fundamental tool in various ophthalmic surgeries. These devices have received increased attention recently due to their various advantages. Use of ophthalmic viscoelastic devices has been observed to increase the success rate of surgeries. Modern cataract and glaucoma surgeries make use of OVDs to coat and protect delicate parts of the eye. This helps increase the chances of success, thus the high adoption of OVDs.

Ophthalmic viscoelastic devices also have other protective roles during eye surgery, making them an essential tool. Ongoing development of products is expected to lead to continued growth of the market as the devices become increasingly sophisticated. New ophthalmic viscoelastic devices combine the advantage of traditional agents and can be used for a wider range of ophthalmic applications. The presence of a large and expanding geriatric population which is highly susceptible to glaucoma and cataract are driving the growth of the OVD market as these types of surgeries have increased significantly. Moreover, favorable reimbursements in developed regions are also expected to drive the market’s growth.

Advancement in material science and development of better OVDs have demonstrated a high success rate in ophthalmic surgeries. In addition, improving reimbursement scenario and spreading awareness is expected to foster the growth of the market over the forecast period.
