Apart from the conventional approaches such as laser surgeries, development of novel drainage devices and stents propel the market growth. Cataract is an eye-related disease in which clouding of the eye lens is observed that leads to impaired vision.

Increase in incidence of glaucoma and growth in geriatric population drives the market growth. Furthermore, increase in prevalence of cataract disease as well as technological advancements in ophthalmic devices are projected to supplement the market growth. However, dearth of skilled professionals and risk of post-operative complications associated with glaucoma surgeries hamper this growth. Moreover, surge in investment by manufacturers in the emerging economies and rise in initiatives to reduce the burden of glaucoma offer profitable opportunities for market expansion.

Among the types of surgery for glaucoma, conventional glaucoma surgery is dominant segment owing to the fewer complications caused by the use of these devices, making them the first choice of the surgeons for the treatment of certain types of glaucoma.

By end user, the hospital segment generated the highest revenue in 2016, and is set to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. However, outpatient surgical center segment is expected to witness a high growth rate on account of the increase in the number of glaucoma laser surgeries being carried out in outpatient surgical facilities and large-scale utilization of glaucoma drainage devices such as tube shunts in these facilities.
