ALBANY, New York, February 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a new report by Transparency Market Research, the

global glaucoma treatment market is being crowded with branded drugs in tandem with rising number of generics, thereby creating significant competition among leading players in the market. This is further setting limits to the introduction of novel
therapies, and several products are closing in on losing exclusivity. Late-stage pipeline drugs for glaucoma, however, hold promise for its treatment, as they are deemed to impart novel mechanism of action, which in turn will create opportunities for the market growth.

The report profiled key players underpinning expansion of the global market for glaucoma treatment, which include Allergan, Novartis AG, Merck & Co., Inc., Bausch & Lomb Incorporated, Akorn, Inc., Teva Pharmaceuticals, Santen, Pfizer, Inotek Pharmaceuticals, and Aerie Pharmaceuticals. According to the report, the global market for glaucoma treatment is expected to ride on a modest CAGR throughout the forecast period, 2017 to 2026. Revenues from treatment of glaucoma across the globe are estimated to close in nearly US$ 3,400 Mn by 2026-end.

Governments & Healthcare Institutions Taking Initiatives for Spreading Awareness about Glaucoma Therapeutic Options 

Prevalence of glaucoma has been rising in tandem with growing geriatric population around the world, as older population is relatively more prone to glaucoma. Mounting number of patients with diabetes along with those having hereditary traits of glaucoma further contribute to the disease prevalence significantly. Several healthcare institutions and governments are taking initiatives for spreading the awareness of treatment options for patients with glaucoma. According to WHO, glaucoma is deemed to be the second largest cause for vision loss globally. Glaucoma, a leading reason for the preventable blindness, is linked with the chronic progressive optic neuropathy that results into irreversible vision loss by damaging the optic nerve.

No treatments exist in the market currently for direct prevention of glaucoma. Several commercially available therapies, however, concentrate on curtailing increased level of intraocular pressure, a well-known risk factor associated with the development & progression of glaucoma. Product development strategies in the recent past have been impressive with surgery options, with several effective additions such as photodynamic therapy and laser therapy. However, excellent efficiency and efficacy of currently available drugs, particularly carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and prostaglandin analogs, have set barriers to the development of new therapy options.
