Emphasis on Improving Management of Dry Eye Diseases and Rise in Research Activities to Aid Market Growth

Dry eye diseases continue to remain a major health problem for millions of patients worldwide. As per the report published by the International Dry Eye Workshop II (DEWS II), dry eye is a multifactorial disease that is caused by the homeostasis loss of the tear film and other ocular symptoms. There are two major types of dry eye diseases as per the pathophysiological classification– aqueous deficient dry eye (ADDE) and evaporative dry eye (EDE). At present, considerable research and development activities are being focused on improving management and treatment of dry eyes by taking into account etiological distinctions.

Research and development activities are also expected to play an imperative role in new treatment strategies that are in sync with dry eye identification and diagnosis criteria. In recent years, tear film-oriented therapy has gained considerable traction worldwide due to which, the global dry eye disease diagnostics & treatment market is likely to witness a considerable boost during the forecast period. In addition, recent advancements in the medical technology and a growing understanding of pathophysiology, along with risk factors and etiology of dry eye disease, have led to the progress of new therapies.

At the back of these factors, along with the growing emphasis on research and development activities, the global dry eye disease diagnostics & treatment market is on the course to reach US$ 9.8 Bn by the end of 2030.
