Macular edema is a slowly progressing disease where accumulation of fluid takes place in a specialized part of the retina called the macula. Owing to the fluid retention in the retinal layer, the person may suffer from blurred or wavy central vision and/or change in appearance of colors. Most of macular edema cases are caused due to diabetes, wherein the blood vessels in the retina are usually damaged due to leakage of fluids, such as small amounts of blood. Other reasons that can lead to macular edema are side effects of certain medications, retinal vein occlusion, and certain genetic disorders, such as retinoschisis or retinitis pigmentosa.
Increase in the prevalence and incidence of diabetes has increased the risk of diabetic macular edema, making it the major driver of the market. Furthermore, increased use of off-label drugs, such as Avastin (bevacizumab) by Roche, and the emergence of new drugs in the market further boost the market growth. Moreover, recently two drugs Ozurdex manufactured by Allergan and Lucentis developed by Roche and Novartis, which are used for the treatment of macular edema, received regulatory approvals, thus boosting the market growth. Furthermore, rise in funding for the R&D activities to tackle the burden of these chronic diseases by medical organizations and pharmaceuticals companies boosts the market.
