Research Announces: Glaucoma - 5EU Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023

Press Release   •   Oct 25, 2016 04:57 EDT

Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable blindness globally. This chronic progressive optic neuropathy causes irreversible vision loss through damage to the optic nerve. There are currently no treatments that can directly prevent this damage, and all commercially available glaucoma therapies focus on lowering elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), a known risk factor for glaucoma development and progression. The launch of fixed-dose combination (FDC) products, which combine drugs from these various classes, will continue to be a source of significant growth in this market. The glaucoma market is about to enter a phase of new growth with the arrival of first-in-class drugs, such as Aeries Rhopressa, Bausch & Lombs Vesneo (latanoprost bunod), and Inoteks trabodenoson into the 7MM during the forecast period, which will generate additional growth in the global glaucoma market.

GlobalData estimates that drug sales for glaucoma in the 5EU reached $250m during the base year of 2013. After an initial period of minimal growth, GlobalData anticipates a moderate and steady growth trend from 2015 onwards. This can be partially attributed to the expected arrival of the recently approved FDC products Simbrinza and Taptiqom during 2015, and to the expected launch of five pipeline products during the forecast period.
