Dry eye syndrome is a medical condition wherein the patient experiences a lack of lubrication or moisture on the surface of their eyes. Also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), it is a commonly occurring syndrome in ophthalmology. Some of the most common symptoms of dry eyes include itchy eyes, burning sensation, inflammation, redness, aching sensations, blurred vision, heaviness, fatigue, soreness, dryness and photophobia. Apart from this, watery eyes can also represent a major symptom for the condition as the eyes may over-stimulate the production of the watery component of tears in order to compensate for the dryness. The syndrome, however, is completely curable by medicines that are often marketed in the forms of gels, ointments and drops.

North America Dry Eye Syndrome Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing reliance of the masses on electronic gadgets across the North American region. Smartphones, TVs, tablets and laptops are extensively utilized by individuals, especially students and working professionals. This has further received a boost due to the growing digitization across industries. In line with this, the prolonged usage of these digital devices has resulted in the increasing prevalence of numerous ocular disorders, including dry eye syndrome. Moreover, the rising incidences of numerous health conditions, such as diabetes, lupus, thyroid, scleroderma and rheumatoid arthritis, have led to an increase in the chances of developing dry eyes among patients as these diseases adversely affect the functioning patient’s tear glands. Furthermore, the steadily increasing geriatric population in the region is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Elderly patients are more likely to develop ocular discomfort, which can result in the rising prevalence of this syndrome. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include growing awareness regarding the available treatment options and rapid advancements in the healthcare sector. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 4.3 Billion by 2032, registering a CAGR of 5.2% during 2024-2032.
