Ophthalmology Markets such as Glaucoma Face Generic Erosion While Wet A Macular
Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy Experience Healthy Growth

GBI Research has found that the global ophthalmology market will grow at a moderate
rate due to the impact of generic erosion in markets such as glaucoma and allergic
conjunctivitis. However, unmet need in the wet age macular degeneration and diabetic
retinopathy markets make the ophthalmology market attractive despite generic erosion.

The attractiveness of the wet age macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy markets
is evident from the considerable amount of research and development (R&D) activity for
these indications and the launch of promising molecules in the period 2010-2017. The
major factor driving the growth of the market is the growing awareness of the importance
of detecting ophthalmic diseases early, the availability of effective diagnostic tools and
an increase in the prevalence of diabetes. The expiry of blockbuster drugs’ patents and
increasing pressure from cheap off-label products in some markets will be the key market
restraints.

The entry of generics will cause the glaucoma market share to shrink, leading to the
growth of the wet age macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy markets. The share
of the market generated by allergic conjunctivitis therapies, which includes a
considerable number of generics, will remain the same in 2017. Due to the extensive
presence of generics in the market, allergic conjunctivitis companies will take steps to
improve the revenue potential of their drugs. The Rx to OTC switch is one of the
strategies that can be leveraged at the right time to increase revenue potential. In addition,
strategies such as branded generics will be increasingly used in the ophthalmology
market.

GBI Research has found the global ophthalmology market to be facing changes such as
low treatment seeking and diagnosis rates. This will result in huge untapped opportunities
in the market.

GBI Research, the leading business intelligence provider, has released its latest research,
“Ophthalmology Therapeutics Market to 2017 - Protein Kinase Inhibitors and
Prostaglandin H-Synthase Inhibitors to Drive Diabetic Retinopathy Market”, which
provides insights into the global ophthalmology therapeutics market forecast until 2017.
The report provides an in-depth analysis of the six therapeutic indications of
ophthalmology, namely glaucoma, allergic conjunctivitis, dry eye syndrome, diabetic
macular edema, diabetic retinopathy and wet age macular degeneration. The report also
examines the ophthalmology therapeutics treatment usage patterns for the covered
indication. In addition, the report includes insights into the ophthalmology R&D pipeline.
GBI Research analysis shows that the overall global ophthalmology market for glaucoma,
allergic conjunctivitis, dry eye syndrome, diabetic macular edema, diabetic retinopathy
and wet age macular degeneration was valued at $10.3 billion in 2010. The market is
expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% for the forecast period to reach $13.2 billion by
2017. The global market revenues are expected to increase due to the introduction of new
molecules which are currently in the regulatory filing stage and those in the later stages
of development.

It is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and
secondary research and in-house analysis by GBI Research’s team of industry experts.
