Revolutionizing Vision Care: Global Artificial Retina Market Grows Amid Rising Prevalence of Retinal Diseases -

The "Artificial Retina Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts - 2023 to 2031" report has been added to's offering.

The artificial retina market is anticipated to witness a steady growth rate of 7.5% by 2031. With millions of people worldwide affected by retinal degenerative diseases, leading to varying degrees of vision impairment and even blindness, the need for innovative solutions is paramount. Retinal degenerative diseases, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), impact normal visual function and quality of life. Photoreceptor cell damage in the retina, if left untreated, can lead to complete vision loss.

AMD and RP are among the most common retinal degenerative diseases. AMD leads to progressive central vision loss, while RP causes night blindness followed by tunnel vision over time. The World Health Organization ranks AMD as the third leading cause of blindness, contributing to 8.7% of global blindness prevalence in industrialized countries. The prevalence of both AMD and RP is projected to increase significantly over the coming years.

Despite advancements in medical science, there is currently no definitive pharmacological treatment or cure for restoring retinal function. Artificial retinas have emerged as a promising solution to aid patients with AMD or RP. These retinas are designed to convert light into electrical signals that stimulate retinal neurons. They can be placed internally or externally on the retina. There are two main types of artificial retinas: epiretinal implants that communicate directly with ganglion and bipolar cells, and sub-retinal implants that replace damaged photoreceptors.

The artificial retina market is witnessing substantial investment in research and development by various players aiming to create improved devices tailored to conditions like AMD and RP. Regions such as North America and Europe are expected to be major contributors to the artificial retina market. The prevalence of blindness in North America, where 50,000 people go blind each year, presents significant growth opportunities for artificial retina adoption.
