Vitreoretinal Surgery Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing number of vitreoretinal surgeries globally is expected to boost demand for vitreoretinal surgery devices over the forecast period. Vitreoretinal surgeries are more common among geriatric population. Growing global geriatric population is expected to increase demand for vitreoretinal surgeries which in turn is directly expected to propel the sales of vitreoretinal surgery devices over the forecast period. According to the statistics from the World Bank Group, nearly 8.2% of the global population is aged above 65 years. The incidence and prevalence vitreoretinal complications among the geriatric population is high as compared to the younger population and therefore with the rising geriatric population the number of vitreoretinal surgeries is expected to witness high demand. According to the United Nations report on the World Population Ageing, 2013 the global population of people above 60 years of age will reach 2 billion by 2050. Growing number of eye disorders is also expected to propel demand for vitreoretinal surgery devices over the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization there were nearly 285 million visually impaired people globally. The increasing incidence of visual disorders are expected to create high opportunities for vitreoretinal surgery devices manufacturers. Moreover recent technological developments like automation and ease of use of the vitreoretinal surgery devices is expected to boost sales and increase adoption of vitreoretinal surgery devices over the forecast period.
