North America to Witness High Growth in Coming Years
Among the key regional segments, the global market for retinal surgery devices has been categorized into the Middle East and Africa, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. In the last few years, North America led the global market and is predicted to remain in the similar position throughout the forecast period. The strong growth of this region can be attributed to the rising prevalence of eye diseases and the rising geriatric population. In addition to this, the rising diabetic population and technological developments are estimated to accelerate the growth of the North America market in the coming years. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is predicted to register a promising growth rate in the coming years. The rising consumer awareness among consumers and the development of the healthcare industry are predicted to encourage the growth of the Asia Pacific market in the near future.
On the basis of application, the retinal surgery devices market has been categorized into retinal detachment, macular hole, diabetic retinopathy, epiretinal membrane, and others. Among these, the diabetic retinopathy segment is projected to account for a large share of the market in the next few years. The rising prevalence of diabetic retinopathy and the rising patient preference for retinal surgery among the other options are some of the key factors that are predicted to encourage the growth of the market throughout the forecast period.
Rising Prevalence of Eye Disorders to Enhance Market Growth
The rising technological advancements and the increasing number of applications of surgical equipment are some of the key factors that are projected to encourage the growth of the global retinal surgery devices market throughout the forecast period.
