Artificial Cornea and Corneal Implant Market Overview:

The global artificial cornea and corneal implant market generated $376.61 million in 2020 and is projected to reach $656.19 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2021 to 2028.

The growth in the artificial cornea implant market is attributed to the willingness of the customer to spend on eye care. Furthermore, increase in prevalence of ophthalmic diseases, such as keratoconus, Fuchs dystrophy, and infectious keratitis, is the key factor that propels the market growth. Apart from this, increase in healthcare expenditure on eye care in the developing countries boosts the growth of the global artificial cornea implant market. In addition, factors such as increase in number of surgeries and rise in demand for new techniques for the treatment provides growth opportunities for the market. However, high cost associated with cornea implant surgeries poses a threat toward the growth of the global artificial cornea implant market. In addition, side effects of the cornea surgeries prevents mass adoption of cornea implant.

Artificial-Cornea-and-Corneal-Implant-Market,-2021-2028

According to the NCBI report, approximately 10-15% of the patients diagnosed with keratoconus have to undergo corneal implant procedure at some point. Corneal blindness is the third leading cause of blindness after glaucoma and cataract affecting 10 million people globally. It is estimated that around 200,000 corneal implant procedures are performed annually. Whereas, still 12.7 million patients are waiting for corneal implants. Furthermore, increase in awareness about the importance of eye donation is expected to boost the market growth. In addition, improvement of eye care facilities, eye banking framework, and cornea trade protocols in the developing countries is expected to contribute toward the rise in demand, thereby supporting the market growth.

The key market players operating in the artificial cornea and corneal implant market are supporting the health systems and healthcare professionals actively attributed to the prevalence of coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the global community,. During the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments across the globe issued limitations and bans on medical procedures and elective surgeries to stop the widely spreading virus. Due to these restrictions, artificial cornea manufacturers faced problems in conducting in-person product demonstrations, operating their facilities at full capacity, and attending or organizing conferences. Moreover, lockdowns in the Asia-Pacific countries such as China and India delayed the production and shipment of ophthalmic devices. These restrictions hampered the demand for ophthalmic procedures.

Rise in geriatric population susceptible to eye diseases drive the artificial cornea and corneal implant industry growth. Moreover, technological advancements coupled with surge in incidence of eye diseases on global level further boost the growth of the corneal implants industry growth. Presence of organizations such as Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA) and The Global Alliance of Eye Bank Associations to promote policies for encouraging effective corneal transplantation render positive impact on the business growth. In addition, rise in awareness regarding eye disease diagnosis is projected to favor corneal implants industry growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, surge in demand for minimally invasive surgical procedure across the globe is anticipated to positively impact the market growth. Advantages associated with minimally invasive treatments coupled with rise in awareness regarding corneal transplants that provide aesthetic benefits boost the industry growth. Advantages include sharper vision by the first day after surgical procedure, enhanced visual recovery, and reduced risk of rejection. Such advantages drive patient preference for corneal implants thereby, fueling the artificial cornea and corneal implant market growth.
