Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market to grow with a CAGR of 4.87%

Increasing healthcare infrastructure and a supportive regulatory environment are the major drivers for the Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market.


According to TechSci Research report, “Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2018-2028”, Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market has valued at USD 1.06 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to witness an impressive growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 4.87% through 2028.   This can be due to collaborations and partnerships among leading companies with a diverse approach to merge the expertise of individual companies and to strengthen their position in the market.

 Access to healthcare is a significant driver of the demand for ophthalmic equipment. Improved access to healthcare services allows individuals to have regular eye check-ups and screenings, leading to the early detection of eye conditions. Early diagnosis often requires the use of diagnostic ophthalmic equipment. When people have access to healthcare facilities, they are more likely to seek eye care services, including comprehensive eye examinations. This leads to a higher demand for ophthalmic equipment for diagnostic purposes. Access to healthcare facilitates the management of chronic eye conditions, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Ophthalmic equipment is essential for monitoring these conditions and ensuring effective treatment. Access to healthcare enables elderly individuals to access cataract surgery and other treatments for age-related eye conditions. This, in turn, drives the demand for surgical ophthalmic equipment and intraocular lenses. People with access to healthcare are more likely to seek vision correction services, such as eyeglasses or contact lenses. The fitting and prescription of corrective lenses require the use of ophthalmic equipment.

Supply chain disruptions present challenges in the Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market, as they can in any sector. Unforeseen global events such as natural disasters, pandemics, geopolitical issues, and trade disputes can disrupt the global supply chain for ophthalmic equipment. These disruptions can lead to delays in equipment delivery and impact inventory levels. Saudi Arabia may rely on imports for a significant portion of its medical equipment, including ophthalmic devices. Any disruptions in the global supply chain, such as transportation delays or customs issues, can affect the availability of equipment in the local market. Supply chain disruptions can lead to increased costs associated with equipment procurement, transportation, and customs clearance. These higher costs can strain the budgets of healthcare facilities and potentially lead to price increases for patients. When the supply chain is disrupted, it can result in equipment shortages. This, in turn, can impact the ability of healthcare facilities to provide timely and comprehensive eye care services.

Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market is segmented based on Products, Application, End User, and by region.

Based on the Application, Saudi Arabia Ophthalmic Equipment Market is segmented into Glaucoma, Amblyopia, Cataract, Retinal Detachment, Others. Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, is a vision disorder that typically occurs in childhood and can lead to reduced vision in one eye. It is not related to any eye health problems but rather results from the brain and the eyes not working well together. The most prominent feature of amblyopia is a significant reduction in the clarity and sharpness of vision in one eye compared to the other. The affected eye, known as the lazy eye, may have poorer visual acuity. Amblyopia is typically a unilateral condition, meaning it affects one eye. In most cases, the other eye has normal or better vision. The affected eye may have a refractive error (e.g., nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) or a structural issue (e.g., misaligned eyes) that results in visual impairment. Amblyopia often develops in early childhood when the visual system is still developing and is most responsive to treatment. If left untreated, the reduced vision in the affected eye can persist into adulthood.
