Visiongain’ has launched a new pharma report Global Ophthalmic Drugs Market Forecast 2018-2028: Dry Eye, Glaucoma Drugs, Retinal Disorders Drugs and Allergic, Inflammatory & Infective Drugs
Ophthalmic pharmaceuticals are pharmaceutical agents used to treat eye diseases, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, ocular allergies, infections, inflammatory conditions and dry eye. A specialist sector within the overall pharmaceutical industry, the ophthalmic drugs market is dominated by a relatively small number of companies. The market is relatively mature though with opportunities for growth in key therapeutic areas.
The lead analyst of the report commented “For many indications, the advantages of pharmaceutical treatment far outweigh the benefits offered by alternative treatments such as surgery. As glaucoma, retinal disorders, inflammatory conditions and moderate to severe dry eye require management by medical professionals, the preferred treatment will be largely guided by clinical considerations rather than competition between alternative treatments.
Gene therapies and other regenerative medicine approaches to ophthalmic diseases may become effective substitutes towards the end of the forecast period. The area of gene therapy is still in its infancy with only a handful of currently marketed products. There is much research interest in gene therapies for conditions such as Leber’s congenital amaurosis and retinitis pigmentosa.”
Leading companies featured in the report include Novartis, Regeneron, Allergan, Roche, Valeant, Santen, Bayer, Pfizer, Senju
