Optometry Equipment Market Research, 2031

The global optometry equipment market size was valued at $4,240.8 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $7,812.1 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 6.3% from 2022 to 2031. Optometry is a branch of healthcare profession which is specialized in examining eyes and related structures for defects or abnormalities. Optometrists are health care professionals who typically provide comprehensive primary eye care. Optometry equipment is frequently used in hospitals and clinics for cornea, cataract, glaucoma, retina, and general examination purposes. Retinoscopes, visual field analyzers, specular microscopes, ophthalmoscopes, wavefront aberrometers, fundus cameras, autorefractors, keratometers, and other tools are examples of these optometry tools. In addition, optometry equipment is used for diagnosis and treating eye disorders like cataract, glaucoma and for general eye examination.

Historical overview

The optometry equipment market size was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2021 to 2031. The optometry equipment market witnessed growth at a CAGR of around 6.3% during 2022-2031. Most of the growth during this period was from North America, owing to rise in the number of optometry equipment industry that manufacture optometry equipment, rise in disposable incomes as well as well-established presence of domestic companies in the region.   

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global optometry equipment market is majorly driven by rise in the prevalence of eye disorder, increase in the number of geriatric population and rise in the prevalence of diabetes. Increase in prevalence of eye disorders, amongst the geriatric and youth population due to change in lifestyle, adoption of digital technology, and usage of screen for a longer duration is one of the major factors for the growth of the optometry equipment market. For instance, according to the data published by National Library of Medicine in July 2022, reported that around 285 million people have a visual impairment, of whom 19 million are children under the age of 14 years. As per the same source, myopia is the most common refractive problem worldwide. It is estimated that 22.9% of the world population is affected by myopia. In addition, myopia is projected to reach 49.8% by 2050.

Optometry Equipment Market

Geriatric population is majorly susceptible to suffering from eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, dry eye, and refractive errors. For instance, in October 2022, according to World Health Organization (WHO), it was reported that approximately 2.2 billion population is suffering from vision disorders in the world. As per the same source approximately 88.4 million people are suffering from refractive errors, 94 million people are suffering from cataract, 8 million people are suffering from age-related macular degeneration and 7.7 million people are suffering from glaucoma.

Due to the process of aging, the nerves and the muscles surrounding the eyes become weak  and susceptible to vision problems. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau data published in December 2021, more than 56 million adults ages 65 i.e., 16.9% of the nation’s population and by 2050 is estimated to rise 85.7 million. Moreover, according to article published in JAMA Ophthalmology, in May 2022, states that 6.6 million people aged 60 years and older are projected to have vision impairment or blindness in 2050, up from 3.3 million in 2020. Thus, rise in prevalence eye disorders increases the demand of optometry equipment. Thus, this factor is anticipated to drive the growth of optometry equipment market.

On the other hand, major constraints limiting the market's growth include high prices and the use of recycled equipment. Due to ophthalmologists' preference for used equipment and the high cost of adopting optometry equipment, most ophthalmic device firms confront a significant obstacle. The cost of manpower, training, and the physical space needed for the machine are all considerable, as well as the cost of the machine itself. All these elements influence clinics and small diagnostic facilities' decisions to invest in such expensive equipment. Thus, this factor is anticipated to boost the growth of optometry equipment market.

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a negative impact on the growth of the global optometry equipment market. The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed healthcare systems globally. A huge number of clinics and hospitals across the globe were restructured to increase the hospital capacity for the patient diagnosed with COVID-19. Most of the non-emergency and minor procedures were canceled or postponed during pandemic. In addition, surgeons are more vulnerable for contracting and transmitting the coronavirus. Subsequently, this led to cancellation of many non-essential eye surgical procedures across the globe. Thus, these factors are anticipated to hinder the growth of the market during the pandemic. In addition, cancellation of health check-up camps for eye disorder in pandemic and decrease in number of consultations for vision disorders are anticipated to hamper the growth of market.

In addition, demand for optometry equipment decreased, owing to travel bans & quarantines, restriction of all indoor/outdoor events and massive slowing of supply chain of surgery systems/machines. For instance, according to an article published in National Library of Medicine in October 2022, states that there was largest decline in refractive surgeries accounting for 79% decrease in comparison to pre-pandemic levels. Thus, the outbreak of COVID-19 has negatively impacted the optometry equipment market growth.
