U.S. Ophthalmic Surgical Systems Market
|出版日期||內容資訊||英文 84 Pages
In the United States (U.S.), serious ophthalmic disease affects more than 35 million. This number is expected to significantly increase due to the aging of the population and disorders such as diabetes that may result in progressive vision loss. Alarmingly, the number of patients with cataracts is expected to increase significantly over the next decade, contributing a substantial increase in the number of cataract surgeries.
The development of new, minimally invasive energy-based (laser/phacoemulsification or “phaco”) technologies is providing safe and effective, medically necessary, vision-saving treatment to millions of patients, particularly those with cataracts who also seek vision correction surgery. Meanwhile, non-medically necessary, high-cost refractive surgery, such as laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) vision correction, continues to increase despite several setbacks.
Overall, more than an estimated 5.5 million directed-energy based (laser/phaco) ophthalmic procedures, including cataract laser surgery, diabetic retinopathy laser surgery, glaucoma/laser trabeculoplasty and laser-based vision correction surgery, were estimated to have been performed in the U.S. in 2013. The advancement of safer and more cost-effective laser-based technologies, such as femtosecond laser cataract surgery and other technological improvements, are expected to improve patient outcomes and drive ophthalmic surgical procedures and market growth over the next half-decade.
For the purposes of this report, the U.S. market for ophthalmic surgical systems includes sales derived from laser and phaco systems for vision correction and the minimally invasive treatment of cataracts, glaucoma, retinal, and other ophthalmic disorders. In addition to ophthalmic surgical systems sales, the market forecast includes revenues derived from surgical accessories/instruments and disposables utilized in minimally invasive directed energy-based ophthalmic surgery. In 2013, the U.S. ophthalmic surgical systems market was valued at approximately $1,695.8 million. Over the forecast period covered by this report, total sales in this market are expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 5.9%, reaching an estimated $2,256.4 million in the year 2018.
