Auto Keratometer Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032)

4% to 5% CAGR

Keratometry is the medical practice of measuring the radius and anterior surface of corneal curvature to diagnose the presence of eye-related ailments such as astigmatism and determine the treatment for the condition. Keratometers, also referred to as ophthalmometers, are devices or instruments used during keratometry for measuring the corneal curvature.

Auto keratometers are a type of keratometers that are based on the principle of variable image size and constant image size. Auto diagnostics instruments are compact devices that allow reflecting the corneal image on the electronic photosensitive device which then records the radius and size of the corneal curvature.

End users are increasingly shifting their inclination towards the adoption of auto keratometers from conventional keratometers, owing to their ability to measure central and peripheral curvatures of the cornea at various points and high accuracy in measurement of refractor error degree in the eye.

Auto keratometers are gaining huge popularity across hospitals, clinics, and diagnosis centers for diagnosis of eye-related conditions such as astigmatism and determination of the actual refractive power and refractive inaccuracy of the eye. These devices are also finding a wide range of applications for the assessment of patients’ eyes pre and post-refractive surgeries. This rise in applications and end use is anticipated to augment the demand for auto keratometers in the global market.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Auto Keratometer Market Growth

Over the past couple of years, a significant rise in the prevalence of eye-related ailments and conditions, such as astigmatism, hyperopia, myopia, and others ophthalmic conditions, is being witnessed across the globe, resulting in augmenting the demand for eye diagnostics and treatment devices.

According to a study published by the World Health Organization, around 914.4 million people across the globe are suffering from presbyopia and unaddressed refractive error, collectively. As auto keratometers are extensively used by ophthalmologists for a thorough diagnosis of the eye along with the measurement of refractor error degree, growing burden of such conditions is estimated to create lucrative growth opportunities in the global market.

Inaccurate measurement of corneal curvature of the eye might lead to complete imperfection in the curvature. In order to counter the parallax errors, medical spaces and personnel are increasingly adopting automated keratometry devices, which is in turn, creating strong demand for auto keratometers.

Hence, leading manufacturers in the market are emphasizing on research and development activities to launch novel keratometry devices integrated with innovative technologies and features. This is projected to accelerate the sales of auto keratometers in the market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Auto Keratometer Market

Although there are several advantages associated with the use of auto keratometers, extravagant cost of the device, need for qualified professionals to measure and calculate the readings, and the availability of relativity low-cost manual keratometers are factors hindering the sales in the market.

In addition to this, stringent regulatory standards and time-consuming new products approval processes by regulatory organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration, Central Drugs Standard Control Organization, and others are restraining the auto keratometer market growth.

Why is North America Emerging as an Opportunistic Auto Keratometer Market

FMI states that North America is estimated to emerge as the most lucrative market for auto keratometers during the forecast period 2022-2032.

Burden of eye-related ailments is increasing at a rapid pace across North America, due to constantly use of smartphones, TV, and computer screens. According to a report by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, around 1 out of 3 individuals across the U.S. is suffering from astigmatism and nearly 150 million people in the country wears some corrective eyewear.

In addition to this, a swift rise in number of eye corneal refractive correction surgeries such as LASIK is being witnessed, owing to the growing patient inclination towards one-time procedures and presence of favorable reimbursement infrastructure. As auto keratometers are extensively used for the determination of astigmatism along with the pre- & post-surgical assessment of cornea curvature, the increasing prevalence of astigmatism and growing corrective surgeries are projected to bolster the sales in the North America market.
