Market Overview: 

An eye is a valuable organ which is impacted by various health problems. Such diseases can not only affect the body but also decrease the vision of a person. Thus, there are various drug delivery systems present in the market which help in treating such eye diseases. Due to efficient protective mechanism of the eye, the market consists of different ophthalmic drugs. In fact, around 70% of the eye dosages that are available in the market are sold in the form of ointments and eye drops. However, these ointments and drops easily drain away from the ocular cavity due to the tears flowing from the eyes. Therefore, novel and advanced pharmaceutical ophthalmic formulations are launched in the developing nations. The customers can get these formulations in the form of nanoparticle, microemulsion, iontophoresis, liposome, and ocular inserts.

Key Market Drivers

Introduction of new products to drive the market

In order to get rid of the ocular drug delivery barriers as well as to improve bioavailability, different conventional as well as novel drug delivery systems have been introduced  like emulsion, ointments, aqueous gels, suspensions, liposomes, nanomicelles, implants, dendrimers, contact lens, and nanoparticles. Not only this but also the key market players are focussed to develop tools which help in improving the efficacy of spatiotemporal drug administration. For instance, in May 2017, pSivida Corp. has made an announcement about its positive 12 months follow up data of third phase trials for Durasert which helps to improve the treatment of posterior uneitis infection.


Increasing investment in R&D to propel the market

The market need huge amount of investment at the developmental stages of advanced ocular drug delivery technologies. The increasing number of new entrants, the expenses related to research and development  are anticipated to increase at a significant rate owing to the collaborations and licensing agreements with various research institutes. In fact various pharmaceutical companies of developed economies are already spending huge amount to develop new technologies which is boosting the market growth.


Key Market Challenges

Ocular implants and inserts offer certain benefits like greater dissolution area, high corneal penetration, and release of medication but the sensation of foreign bodies in the eye owing to the solidity of the implants will result in discomfort in eye along with drug dilution, irritation, and excessive lachrymation which is going to restrain the market. Apart from this, the reduction in the patient compliance, adherence to novel ocular therapies owing the high cost associated with it will hamper the market growth.
