Global Corneal Implants Market to Grow at 6.8% during 2021 – 2029

Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK) to Held the Largest Market Share in 2020

According to Absolute Markets Insights report, penetrating keratoplasty (PK) accounted for the higher market share in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period (2021-2029) in the global corneal implants market. Penetrating keratoplasty (PK) is the common and successful tissue transplantation worldwide, and it has been the standard of care for some corneal diseases that cause visual impairment. Penetrating keratoplasty has remained a popular and a common procedure for corneal transplants. However, the rising demand for disease-focused transplant techniques has supplanted the one-size-fits-all approach of traditional penetrating keratoplasty with increasingly refined surgical options tailored to specific indications.  The increasing number of endothelial keratoplasty grafts is anticipated to support the segment's growth in the upcoming years. For instance, in 2019, The Eye Bank Association of America reported that the number of penetrating keratoplasty implants increased by 0.4 percent and endothelial keratoplasty increased by 1 percent, mainly due to a 23 percent increase in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) procedures.

Since the developing world carries most of the load of corneal blindness, the main causes of corneal blindness are active keratitis and corneal scar. The development of corneal transplantation services needs a wide-ranging approach encompassing medical standards in eye banking, training of cornea specialists, and exposure of ophthalmologists to care of corneal transplants for better follow-up care. The rigorous efforts medical professionals have made to develop and implement prevention strategies since most corneal blindness is preventable are expected to support the market's steady growth. There is a significant connection between blindness and aging. According to a scientific survey, approximately 58% of all blind people are more than 60 years old, and only 3.8% of the global total are between 0 and 15 years old. Therefore, the large consumer base for cornea implants due to a rising aging population is anticipated to drive the global corneal implants market growth over the forecast period.
