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

Global Vitreous Tamponades Market: Snapshot

The global vitreous tamponades market is envisioned to be encouraged by a high demand arising from the need to replace disintegrated vitreous humor in aging patients with a synthetic alternative that could act as a retinal reattachment medium. Vitreous tamponade is researched to be an ideal synthetic substitute for vitreous humor which disintegrates with age, eventually leading to retinal detachment or tear. Moreover, vitreous tamponade could aid the healing process.

As per a latest study, the global vitreous tamponades market could be valued at a US$77.5 bn by 2020.

Remarkable Effectiveness in Retinal Tear Treatment Earns Strong Demand for Liquid Tamponades

Industry players looking to make an impact on the world vitreous tamponades market could take to exploring business opportunities in different segments by type of tamponade. Different markets by type roof different prospects, which need to be determined with a keen eye and leveraged at the right time for maximum profit. According to tamponade type segmentation, the market could witness the rise of liquid and gaseous products.

However, the liquid tamponades market is anticipated to account for a colossal share in future in terms of revenue, as it had secured in the recent past. Owing to their high degree of effectiveness in treating retinal tear, liquid tamponades are expected to showcase their dominance in the market. Rest of the World, Europe, and Asia Pacific could be key geographical markets for liquid tamponades.

Contrastingly, gaseous tamponades are predicted to exhibit a faster growth in comparison with liquid tamponades for the coming years. This could be due to the ease of use and low cost of gaseous tamponades. As foreseen by seasoned analysts, the liquid tamponades market could be further categorized into perfluorocarbons and silicone oil. Amongst the two, silicone oil had registered a massive share in the world vitreous tamponades market in the past. The relatively slower growth of perfluorocarbons could be blamed on their limited usage. They are employed during the execution of treatments for giant retinal tear or break (GRT) as an intraoperative tool.

North America Takes Control of Telling Share with Premium Prices of Tamponades

Despite the widespread application of liquid tamponades in the aforementioned key geographies, North America is prognosticated to catch hold of a significant share in the international vitreous tamponades market. Even in the present scenario, it boasts of a leading share in the market. Followed by Europe, the region could score an over 30.0% share to dominate other players in the market until 2020.

One of the major factors foretold to drive the growth of North America is the telling awareness about vitreoretinal diseases. Premium-priced tamponades could be another reason for the supremacy of North America over other regions deemed important for the market. Furthermore, the region could rest its hopes on the mounting occurrence of retinal detachment and age-related macular degeneration.

Asia Pacific, on the flipside, is prophesied to record a higher CAGR during the course of the forecast period 2014–2020. Some of the chief aspects of growth that could take shape in Asia Pacific include the surging count of tamponade manufacturers. Besides this, Southeast Asia and countries such as India and China holding a significant presence of diabetics or a larger diabetic population are envisaged to be another powerful factor contributing toward the growth of Asia Pacific in the international vitreous tamponades market.

Few of the leading companies operating in the worldwide vitreous tamponades market could be Fluoron GmbH, Dutch Ophthalmic Research Center B.V., Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc., and Alcon, Inc.
