Market Overview

Global visual prosthesis market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period 2023–2031.

Visual prosthesis makes use of integrated tools to hold the entire sorting of consumers and healthcare professionals, and medical device providers and hence results in enhanced care quality, improved patient engagement, and reduction in healthcare cost and expenditure. Many health care specialists recommend that through visual prosthesis, programmed health assessments could be carried out electronically and virtually. The terrestrial obstructions could be resolute with this technology by making it possible to diagnose patients away from the diagnostic center and clinics.

Retinal degenerative diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and accidents or injuries are some of the major factors responsible for causing complete or partial blindness among people. Global visual prosthesis market is expected to witness a surge in demand for treatment on account of increasing awareness related to daily eye care diagnostics and treatment, rising prevalence of retinal diseases among the aging population, and ongoing research & development activities. In a study, it has been found that about 81% of blind people or people with moderate or severe vision defects are over 50 years old.

However, new entrants in the market are more likely to change the market dynamics by offering the products at low prices. It would be interesting to see how existing players would overcome this challenge along with the longer time taken for approval of visual prosthesis by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
