Excimer & Femtosecond Ophthalmic Lasers Market: Refractive Surgery Will Remain The Fastest Growing Segment
The global excimer and femtosecond ophthalmic lasers market is expected to increase at a rate of nearly 4% in 2016 and reach US$ 666 Mn in revenues. North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific (excluding China and Japan) will remain the lucrative markets for ophthalmic lasers globally.
Increasing per capita income, especially in emerging countries, will continue to fuel adoption of excimer and femtosecond ophthalmic lasers. Growing health awareness and improving living standards will also play influencing roles in driving adoption. Technical advancements in development of ophthalmic lasers are also expected to play a key role in driving the growth of the market. However, high costs and concerns about post-LASIC complications—longstanding challenges for manufacturers—will continue to pose challenges to widespread adoption.
On the basis of product type, excimer lasers will continue to outsell femtosecond lasers, accounting for over 60% revenue share in 2016. However, femtosecond will continue to gain traction, witnessing higher year-over-year growth rate in 2016. While constant technological advancements in the functionality of femtosecond lasers is expected to drive adoption, high cost will negatively influence total sales.
