March 25, 2022 | Healthcare

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Japan Dry Eye Syndrome Market Report by Disease Type (Evaporative Dry Eye Syndrome, Aqueous Dry Eye Syndrome), Drug Type (Anti-inflammatory Drugs, Lubricant Eye Drops, Autologous Serum Eye Drops), Product (Liquid Drops, Gel, Liquid Wipes, Eye Ointment, and Others), Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, Online Pharmacies), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the Japan dry eye syndrome market size reached US$ 140.3 Million in 2023. Dry eye syndrome, also called keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), refers to a chronic medical condition in which the human eyes cannot produce adequate quantity or quality of natural tears to provide sufficient lubrication and moisture to the eyes. Some of the common symptoms of dry eye syndrome include itching, redness, soreness, photophobia, fatigued eyes, discomfort, and aching or burning sensation in the eyes. It can occur due to numerous factors, including computer usage, menopause, laser eye surgeries, vitamin A deficiency, smoking, aging, allergies, and hormone replacement therapies. Moreover, dry eye syndrome can be treated using lacrimal plugs, artificial tears, lifestyle changes, medications, and surgeries.

Japan Dry Eye Syndrome Market Trends:

In Japan, the excessive exposure to digital screens due to the rising usage of computers, smartphones, and other devices represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Additionally, the growing incidences of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, Sjogren's syndrome, lupus, scleroderma, and rheumatoid arthritis, are contributing to the widespread prevalence of dry eye syndrome among the masses. In line with this, the expanding geriatric population that is more prone to developing such medical conditions due to low levels of supportive hormones is another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing usage of hyaluronic acid for retaining moisture and treating dry eye syndrome has catalyzed the market growth. Apart from this, the launch of novel treatment options and the introduction of functional visual acuity meter devices to measure changes in continuous visual acuity over time have accelerated the product adoption rate. Moreover, the emergence of advanced diagnostic tools, various product innovations, and inflating healthcare expenditure capacities of consumers are also creating a favorable market outlook. On account of these factors, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 194.3 Million by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
