Intraocular Lens Market Predicted to Reach USD 5.6 billion by 2028, Expanding at a 4.9% CAGR – Exclusive Report by Transparency Market Research

The intraocular lens market is expanding due to an aging global population, driving cataract surgeries and lens implantation procedures.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Sept. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transparency Market Research Inc. - The intraocular lens market was valued at US$ 3.9 billion in 2020. It is anticipated to register a 4.9% CAGR from 2021 to 2028 and by 2028; the market is likely to gain US$ 5.6 billion. Traditional mono-focal IOLs correct vision at a single distance. However, advanced multifocal and accommodative IOLs offer patients the ability to see clearly at multiple distances, reducing dependency on glasses for tasks like reading and driving.

Customized IOLs are gaining traction, tailoring lens parameters to each patient's unique eye characteristics. Toric IOLs are designed to correct astigmatism, broadening the market's reach to individuals with this common vision problem.

EDOF IOLs are a relatively new entrant, promising a broader range of clear vision compared to multifocal lenses. They aim to provide excellent vision quality without the glare or halos that some multifocal lenses may induce. Advancements in surgical techniques and instruments are enabling less invasive cataract surgeries. These developments translate into quicker patient recovery, reduced surgical trauma, and potentially more IOL implantations.

Beyond cataract surgery, IOLs are finding applications in refractive lens exchange (RLE) procedures to correct refractive errors in patients without cataracts, presenting a growing market segment. As healthcare access improves in emerging markets, the demand for IOLs is increasing. This includes regions in Asia, Latin America, and Africa, offering significant untapped potential.

Key Findings of the Market Report

  • Among the intraocular lens market product types, monofocal IOLs dominate due to their wide use in standard cataract surgeries.
  • Hospitals dominate the intraocular lens market as primary venues for cataract surgeries and intraocular lens implantations.
  • Europe is the dominating region in the intraocular lens market, characterized by advanced healthcare infrastructure and a significant aging population.

Market Trends for Intraocular Lenses

  • A notable trend in the Intraocular Lens (IOL) market is the development of extended vision range lenses. These IOLs offer patients a broader range of clear vision, reducing the need for glasses after cataract surgery.
  • Unlike traditional monofocal lenses, extended vision range IOLs provide clear vision at multiple distances, accommodating activities like reading, using a computer, and driving. This trend reflects the growing demand for IOLs that enhance patients' overall quality of life by minimizing post-surgery dependency on corrective eyewear.
  • The integration of digital technology is streamlining the IOL selection process. Surgeons can use advanced measurement techniques and predictive modeling to choose the most suitable IOL for each patient's unique eye characteristics.
