Cataract Surgery Devices Market Dynamics and Trends

The global cataract surgery devices market growth is driven by the factors such as the geriatric population, the rise in the prevalence of ocular disorders, and technological progression in healthcare such as the use of lasers along with computer-controlled optical delivery systems which enable precise incisions without any damage to the surrounding tissues.

An increase in the prevalence of cataract diseases and an increasing geriatric population will drive the market growth 

The growth rate of the market can be attributed to a cohort of factors, such as the growing prevalence of cataract cases and the increasing geriatric population who are more prone to ophthalmologic diseases, especially cataracts. According to, 2019, an estimated 38.5 million entities in the United States will have cataracts by 2032 and the average annual cost related to the treatment of cataracts in the United States is nearly USD 7 billion. With the increasing prevalence of cataract cases, the surgeries increase creating an enormous demand for the devices. For instance, according to LaserSurgeryHub.UK, approximately 330,000 cataract operations are performed each year in England alone. With this huge number of surgeries, the market growth will increase globally. Furthermore, the technological advancements in ophthalmic devices are increasing the comfort levels of doctors and patients, having a positive impact on market growth.

Moreover, product innovation and evolution by new entrants are expected to impel market growth. Furthermore, growing incidences of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension have positively anticipated propelling the growth of the global cataract surgery devices market.

The dearth of skilled professionals and lack of awareness regarding cataract disorders are likely to hamper the market growth

However, the factors such as the dearth of skilled professionals and lack of awareness regarding cataract disorders especially in developing economies are limiting the market growth. Also, lack of healthcare insurance and poor primary healthcare infrastructure are the potential restraints hampering the overall growth of the global cataract surgery devices market.

COVID-19 Impact on Cataract Surgery Devices Market Growth

COVID-19 had a short-term impact on the cataract surgery devices market primarily in the initial phase of the pandemic when the whole world went into lockdown and other travel restrictions to curb the spread of infection due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Due to restrictions and lockdown, the ongoing and scheduled surgical procedures were delayed or canceled which impacted the cataract surgery devices market negatively. For instance, as the pandemic started to affect India in March 2020, the number of cataract cases fell to 495 (a 20% reduction). In April and May 2020, no cases were performed due to government-mandated elective surgical shut-down. From June 2020 through October 2020, only 257 cases were performed. In November 2020, we started to slowly increase surgical volume and performed 145 cases, and performed 263 cases in December 2020.

Cataract Surgery Devices Market Segment and Shares

The phacoemulsification equipment segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030)     

The phacoemulsification equipment has a larger market share due to the surgeons and patients opting for them over the others due to the advantages. Phacoemulsification cataract surgery is a procedure in which an ultrasonic device is used to break up the cataract, from the eye to improve vision. The benefits of this surgery are that there is no need for hospitalization, a smaller incision, no restriction on normal activities, etc. Apart from these advantages, the other factors propelling the segment growth are the increasing prevalence of cataracts and surgeries and increasing the adoption of these devices in Asian Countries like India and China, which are the fastest-growing in the market.
