Tonometry Market Overview

Tonometry is referred to diagnostic procedure to measures the pressure inside your eye that is known as intraocular pressure (IOP). This procedure is used for examination of glaucoma disease which can cause blindness by the damaging the nerve inside the eye. Further, tonometer is the optical device for the diagnosis of the intraocular pressure.

Market Size and Forecast

The global tonometry market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period i.e. 2017-2024. Moreover, the global tonometry market is projected to account for outstanding sales by the end of 2024. Further, rising ophthalmic related healthcare development all over the globe is projected to foster the growth of tonometry market. Moreover, rising prevalence of eyes disorders is also projected to bolster the growth of tonometry market.

Growth Drivers and Challenges

Rising incidences of glaucoma disease coupled with advancement in imaging diagnostic products for better diagnosis is expected to be the dynamic factor behind the rapid growth of tonometry across the globe. Further, diabetes is one the major factor which is increasing the prevalence of eye disorders among the population. Moreover, growing old age population along with high occurrence of diabetes among older population across the globe is a major factor which is likely to propel the demand for tonometer during the forecast period. Additionally, according to U.S. Census Bureau, 8.5 percent of people worldwide (617 million) are aged 65 and over, further this percentage is projected to boost to nearly 17 percent of the world’s population by 2050 (1.6 billion).

Furthermore, government initiatives to develop the healthcare infrastructure on the back of strengthening GDP figures of developing nations such as China, India, Malaysia and other countries is envisioned to bolster the growth of tonometry market. Additionally, according to vision2020australia, in Australia, 801,000 number of people aged 40 or over is expected to loss there vision by the end of 2020.
