Pachymeter Market Overview
Ophthalmology deals with the eye, which has an important role in managing lifestyle. Eye which consist of many segment which play an individual role for their function and structure. The focusing mechanisms for vision is controlled by the outermost layer of the eye, known as cornea.
The cornea is responsible for focusing and covering the front of eye, cornea face some of the problem which can affect the individual person lifestyle. The cornea can get damaged due to infection, injury and may be due to some disease which directly affect the cornea and affect vision of the eyes.
The pachymeter is an innovative medical device used for measuring cornea thickness which provides input about cornea damage or any other infection related problems. The pachymeter work on modern ultrasound technology to measurer the thickness of cornea. The pachymeter identifies the CCT (central corneal thickness) which is necessary for diagnosis of cornea.
The current pachymeter which uses modern ultrasound is much better than any other traditional pachymeter which are working on optical principle for identifying the cornea thickness for treatment.
Pachymeter Market: Drivers and Restraints
Pachymeter market is growing market over the forecast period. The increasing number of patient pool directly boost the overall market of pachymeter. According to NIH (National Eye Institutes), at the age of 40 the American has high risk of cataract which and 1.9% of the U.S population suffer from glaucoma in 2010, which direct indication for the growth of the pachymeter market.
The geriatric population in various geographical region also boosts the market of pachymeter, as the risk of glaucoma is high in geriatric populations. The high cost of pachymeter along with stringent approval process in various geographical region is the current hindrance for pachymeter market.
Pachymeter Market: Overview
Pachymeter has the major market opportunity as the technology advancement which provide faster measurement of cornea along with accurate results is boosting the overall market of pachymeter. The pachymeter which is handheld and falls under ultrasound technology shows the faster market growth as compared to other optical based technology pachymeter.
The end user plays an important role for the overall growth of the pachymeter market as the patient pool are reached at end user. Developing countries contribute in market growth as the increasing focus on medical infrastructure also affects the market for pachymeter.
Pachymeter Market: Region-wise Outlook
Geographically, Pachymeter market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific Excluding Japan, Japan, Middle East and Africa. North America has the major market in the pachymeter shareas the high patient pool is present in the region along with presence of major players in the regions and the effective reimbursement scenarios contributes in holding the major share in pachymeter market.
Western and Eastern Europe show high adaptation rate of pachymeter is increased among ophthalmologists and increasing patient pool boost the market of pachymeter.
Asia Pacific Excluding Japan has slow growth as the high cost of pachymeter create hindrance for market growth in various countries of Asia Pacific Excluding Japan along with improving healthcare infrastructures in the region. Japan shows moderate growth as various version of pachymeter are coming for more accurate diagnosis of the cornea.
Middle East & Africa shows slow growth as the medical infrastructure is not good and lack of awareness about pachymeter for diagnosis of cornea in healthcare professionals.
