The ophthalmic knives market was valued at USD 1.56 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 2.33 billion by the year 2027, at a CAGR of 5.1%. The market is extensively driven by increasing incidences of eye-related diseases in developed as well as developing countries. For instance, nearly 2 billion people had vision impairment across the world, either moderate or severe, due to some eye diseases in 2019, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Around 123.7 million people are affected by refractive error, 62.5 million people are affected by cataracts, 6.9 million by glaucoma, 4.2 million by corneal opacities, 3 million by diabetic retinopathy and 2 million by trachoma. The increasing acceptance of affordable and disposable knives and increasing adoption of ophthalmic knives in minimally invasive surgeries for the treatment of disorders like cataract and glaucoma are estimated to boost the market growth. As visual damage and blindness develop as critical public health problem, a number of healthcare professionals and ophthalmologists are using ophthalmic knives so as to improve the efficacy and reliability of the instruments and the procedure. The geriatric population, which is prone to eye disorders due to aging effects, is also driving the sector widely. The rising awareness about eye diseases could be another expected factor that would propel the demand. However, the precision and exquisite training required for the use of ophthalmic knives is expected to hinder the growth of ophthalmic knives.
