Global Artificial Cornea and Corneal Implant Market to Reach US$ 612.1 Million by 2028, Bolstered by Rising Geriatric Population

January 17, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Artificial Cornea and Corneal Implant Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the global artificial cornea and corneal implant market size reached US$ 412.5 Million in 2022. A corneal implant refers to the process of replacing a diseased cornea using a wide range of surgical techniques. It incorporates human donor cornea tissue or artificial cornea and eliminates all or parts of the damaged cornea to restore the vision and relieve pain. The implant process is designed for long-term vision and is extensively used for the treatment of ophthalmic disorders such as Fuchs’ dystrophy and keratoconus. Artificial cornea and corneal implant are available in synthetic and biosynthetic variants, which are made of polymer plastics and silica materials. The use of artificial cornea in the corneal procedure is generally considered for end-stage corneal diseases such as multiple graft failures or inflammatory ocular surface disease. As a result, it is widely performed across hospitals and ophthalmic and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs).

Global Artificial Cornea and Corneal Implant Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the increasing incidences of corneal infection, which causes cloudy corneas, resulting in visual disability. Apart from this, the rising geriatric population that is more susceptible to eye diseases is also fueling the market growth. As a result, healthcare professionals and patients are increasingly preferring minimally invasive (MI) surgical procedures, which are cost-effective and require less days for recovery. Besides this, artificial cornea and corneal implants offer various advantages, such as sharper vision and reduced risk of rejection. In addition, governments of different countries are implementing initiatives and setting up guidelines to control the rising instances of vision impairment, thereby propelling the market growth. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is spreading awareness regarding eye abnormalities through their “Vision Health Initiative,” which offers the latest diagnostic and treatment methods to manage vision related ailments. Moreover, several key manufacturers are introducing three-dimensional (3D) printed artificial corneas to enhance the effectiveness of the procedure. Looking forward, the market value is expected to reach US$ 612.1 Million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
