Market Insights

Vitreous tamponades are used in vitrectomy surgery to reattach the retina and to treat other vitreous deformations. These products are often used for the treatment of retinal disorders during retinal surgery and post-surgery recovery. Some common conditions in which vitreous tamponades are sued during treatment include retinitis pigmentosa, diabetic retinopathy, retinal degeneration, retinal detachment, macular hole, macular edema, retinopathy of prematurity, uveitis, vascular occlusion, and so on. Vitreous occupies the gap between the eye lens and the retina; and since it can not regenerate, this cavity needs to be replaced by surgery. Gas and liquid vitreous tamponades are the ideal choices for surgery.

Stable growth of the global vitreous tamponades market is driven by increasing incidence of retinal conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, etc. the global incidence of diabetes is increasing, thereby paving way for the increased patient pool for diabetic retinopathy, consequently increasing the demand for vitreous tamponades in vitrectomy.  

Ongoing developments in the field of vitreoretinal surgery have also augmented the need for appropriate vitreous substitutes. An ideal substitute is expected to maintain all the biochemical and physical characteristics of the natural vitreous. Furthermore, as new surgical techniques with smaller instruments have been introduced in the market with proven safety profiles, there has been a consistent growth in the number of patients opting for such surgeries. This has also led to the use of more viscous vitreous substitutes.

Growing incidence of vitreoretinal disorders and diabetes complications such as diabetic retinopathy is a key driver of this market. These conditions are treated with vitrectomy which involves removal of the vitreous humor along with the replacement with a synthetic substitute. Additionally, increasing geriatric population is also considered as one of the prominent factors positively impacting market growth. Based on the competitive scenario, this market is witnessing the presence of a limited number of players, which further enjoy regional dominance.
