Vitreous Tamponades Market (Tamponades Types: Gaseous Tamponades and Liquid Tamponades [Silicone Oil, Perfluorocarbons]) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020


Vitreous humor of the human eye is a vital component that acts as nutrition and refractive medium. The vitreous humor is initially a highly viscous gel like substance made up of collagen fibers and water. In case of trauma or upon aging, the vitreous humor disintegrates and in the process ends up tearing or detachment of highly fragile retina. Thus, these retinal detachment and vitreoretinal disorders often require an ophthalmic surgical procedure known as vitrectomy. Vitrectomy procedure involves surgical removal of the vitreous humor that is replaced with synthetic substitute known as vitreous tamponade. These vitreous tamponades act as a retinal reattachment medium thereby aiding the healing process. 

The global vitreous tamponade market is studied based on the types of tamponades and geography. Based on tamponade types, the market have been further segmented into two major sub segments namely, gaseous tamponades and liquid tamponades. Between product segments, liquid tamponade segment accounted for the largest share (in terms of revenue) of the market, in 2013. Liquid tamponades have widespread usage across Asia Pacific, Europe and RoW due to their effectiveness in treating high degree of retinal tear. Gaseous tamponades on the other hand are expected to grow at a faster rate compared to liquid tamponades, owing to its lower costs and ease of use. The liquid tamponades segment has been further categorized into silicone oil and perfluorocarbons. Of these, silicone oil segment captured majority of the market share in 2013. The perfluorocarbons have limited use and are used as an intra operative tool during the treatment of giant retinal breaks.

In terms of regional distribution, North America currently accounts for the largest share of the global vitreous tamponades market followed by Europe. Furthermore, North America with a market share of more than 30% is expected to dominate the industry during the forecast period. The dominance of this region was majorly due to high awareness about vitreoretinal disorders, availability of premium priced tamponades and soaring prevalence of age related macular degeneration and retinal detachment. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to witnesses highest growth rate (CAGR) in the vitreous tamponade market during the forecast period. The presence of a large diabetic population in countries such as China, India and South East Asia and increasing number of tamponade manufacturers are some of the primary reasons supporting the growth of this region.

The global vitreous tamponade market is highly fragmented and region specific. Alcon, Inc., Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (parent of Bausch + Lomb), Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Dutch Ophthalmic Research Center B.V., Fluoron GmbH, Croma Pharma AG, and AL.CHI.MI.A Srl are few players operating in this market.
