Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.
Ophthalmic viscoelastic devices are the viscoelastic materials used to maintain space in the eye during surgery. Typically, OVDs are pre-packaged in a syringe and are applied using a small tube. Essential properties of OVDs are tied to their physicochemical and rheological properties. Different types of OVDs available in the market include higher viscosity cohesive OVD and lower viscosity dispersive OVD. This category does not include OVDs with both cohesive and dispersive viscoelastic properties. Cohesive OVD, Dispersive OVD and Viscoadaptive OVD are tracked under this category.
The ophthalmic viscoelastic devices market in the US can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
