Global Glaucoma Therapeutics Market is valued at approximately USD XXX billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XX% over the forecast period 2022-2029. Glaucoma therapeutics refers to the various alternative treatments for Primary Angle-Closure (PAC) and Primary Open-Angle (POA) glaucoma. The condition is caused by structural changes in the optic nerves, which frequently lead to blindness and vision loss. Topical eye drops that primarily include beta-blockers, prostaglandin analogues, cholinergic, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and alpha-adrenergic agonists can be used to start the treatment for glaucoma. These eye drops decrease the amount of fluid generated in the eyes, reducing intraocular pressure (IOP). The usage of devices such as implantable extended-release devices, drug-eluting punctal plugs, polymer-based contact lenses, microneedle-injection devices, and microdosing technologies can then be followed by traditional or laser surgical procedures or a combination of both. One of the main factors fueling the market's growth is the rising incidence of glaucoma worldwide. Patients with diabetes and other eye conditions, such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), cataract, and dry eye, are significantly more probable to develop glaucoma. Also, another factor driving the market growth is increasing technological advancements in the field of ophthalmology and rising product innovation and development is anticipated to create demand for the market.

The key factors projected to fuel the growth of the global glaucoma therapeutics market are the rising occurrences of blindness and the rising numbers of glaucoma patients. The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness reports that in 2020, 80 million individuals have glaucoma, an increase of nearly 20 million from its 2010 data findings. Additionally, the rising geriatric population is anticipated to create a lucrative opportunity for the market during the forecast period. However, the drug recalls by major players stifled market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.

The key regions considered for the Global Glaucoma Therapeutics Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Rest of the World. North America is the dominating region across the world in terms of market share, owing to the well-developed medical infrastructure and rising prevalence of glaucoma in the region. Whereas, Asia Pacific is also anticipated to exhibit the highest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to factors such as the rising prevalence of diabetes, rising ocular disorders, and the growing number of blind and visually impaired people would create lucrative growth prospects for the Glaucoma Therapeutics market across Asia Pacific region.
