The Glaucoma Treatment Market Continued to be driven by Aging Population and Rising Awareness in the Emerging Countries: Ken Research


Glaucoma has been diagnosed as the second leading cause of blindness in the world, according to World Health Organization (WHO) and it has been also been observed that despite of the treatment, 10% of the glaucoma patients still experience loss of vision. Moreover, it has been stated that disease is more prevalent among people above 60 years of age and the growing geriatric population globally, is at higher risk of developing glaucoma. The statistics clearly advocate the need of efficient treatment method for curing glaucoma; however the market has not experienced any presence of such treatment. The medications available in the market are used for management of symptoms.

Global glaucoma treatment market is broadly divided by different drug classes used for management of glaucoma which includes alpha agonist, beta blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, cholinergic, combined medications, and prostaglandin analogs. Various pharmaceutical giants including Pfizer, Merck, Alcon, Inc., and Allergan provide drugs in their portfolio for treatment of glaucoma in the respective drug classes. The market has also been divided by formulations into three major segments including tablets, solutions, and gels.

Aging population and rising awareness in the emerging economies are the major factors which are expected to drive the glaucoma treatment market during future. However, increasing number of patent expirations during the forecast period is expected to restrain the market during the forecast period.
