It is a medical complication that affects the retina in the eye in diabetic patients. It impacts the blood vessels in the eye, which may lead to vision loss and blindness. Therefore, patients must undergo an eye examination test like a Visual acuity test, Pupil dilation, Ophthalmoscopy or fundus photography, Fundus Fluorescein angiography (FFA), Retinal vessel analysis, or Optical coherence tomography (OCT) to confirm the disease. As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the populace affected with Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) was 126 million in 2010. This value will reach 191 million by the end of 2030, which will influence the growth of the diabetic retinopathy market at an equal pace.

MARKET DRIVERS

YOY growth in the patient count who has diabetes, an increasing number of product launches, increasing strategic developments such as partnerships and agreements between the market participants, and favorable research funding scenarios propel the diabetic retinopathy market growth.

According to the findings of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), an estimated 537 million people worldwide had diabetes in 2021, and this figure is anticipated to reach 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045. Currently, an estimated 541 million people worldwide higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes soon. According to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), an estimated 11.3% of the population of the United States has diabetes. Rising incidences of diabetes, the inability to cope with the retinal screening of patients with diabetes, and growth in the awareness among people over the diagnosis and treatment services in hospitals are driving the global diabetic retinopathy market growth. Diabetic Retinopathy affects over 33% of diabetes patients and is the principal cause of blindness in the 20-79 aged population with diabetes. India, China, and Bangladesh represent over 40% of the global diabetic retinopathy burden. In Africa, two-thirds of people with diabetes remain undiagnosed. About 30% of people with Diabetic Retinopathy present the greatest unmet need. In the United States, Diabetic Retinopathy is the leading cause of new cases of legal blindness among adults aged 20 to 79.

In addition, increasing demand for continuous monitoring of diseases, rising capital income in developed and developing countries, and growing geriatric population further fuel market growth. Rising demand for cost-effective and protective treatment procedures and having the least quality diagnosis are estimated to favor the global diabetic retinopathy market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

Less knowledge about the treatment options, shortage of skilled ophthalmologists, and strict government rules are major restraints to the market growth. Diabetic Retinopathy is a common diabetic eye disease; that leads to eye blindness for diabetic patients. The lack of trained or technically skilled professionals is the major restraint of the diabetic retinopathy market. Further, the major drawback of the diabetic retinopathy market was the costliest treatment. The availability of advanced technology and various treatment methods like laser treatment is hindering the market. Moreover, prescribing medication to decrease the impact of diabetic retinopathy will be a significant drawback for the market. In addition, the lengthy approval times for drugs and lack of awareness about diabetic retinopathy treatment in emerging countries like India, South Africa, etc., will affect the market growth.

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Diabetic Retinopathy Market

The World Health Organisation declared the coronavirus as a pandemic. More than 200 countries declared a lockdown to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. Moreover, 110 million were affected by COVID-19, 61.9 million people recovered, and more than 2.43 million died. The pandemic has affected so many industries or markets differently. The healthcare sector has positive and negative impacts due to novel coronavirus diseases. Due to the lockdown, all manufacturing industries, companies, and others were shut down, and the supply chain was disturbed. The patients cannot get their medicines due to a lack of supply.

Moreover, due to a lack of workers and strict lockdown restrictions, there is a decline in productivity; thus, there is no supply for the demand. However, the market's key players are trying to overcome the pandemic by releasing new technologies. Therefore, due to the declining impact of COVID-19, the diabetic retinopathy market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
