Increasing Incidence of Cataract Supports Intraocular Lens Market Growth

“The significant rise in the prevalence of cataract is the main factor that has been boosting the growth of the worldwide intraocular lens market,” says the author of this study. Apart from this, the increasing incidence rate of diabetes in people across the world is making them highly prone to cataracts, which is resulting in a high demand for corrective treatments and medical aids, reflecting positively on intraocular lens market. The continual surge in the global geriatric population, which is the most susceptible age group to contract cataract, will also considerably support the growth of the intraocular lens market. In addition, technological advancements and the rising awareness among consumers about the product are expected to propel the intraocular lens market.

The high cost associated with the surgical process, however, may obstruct the growth trajectory of the intraocular lens market in the near future. Nevertheless, the augmenting capacity to spend on healthcare of consumers and the increasing support by various governments, in terms of reimbursement policies and subsidies on treatment  propel intraocular lens market  progression in the years to come, thereby normalizing the impact of hindrances on the intraocular lens market growth, reports the study.
