Back of the Eye Disorders Markets, 2030

Wednesday, 21. February 2018 10:37

Dublin, Feb. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Back of the Eye Disorders: Novel Drugs and Delivery Technologies, 2017-2030" report has been added to's offering.

Current projections also indicate that, in the US alone, the total economic burden related to vision loss is expected to reach approximately USD 715 billion by 2050. In fact, chronic eye diseases are considered to be one of the main causes of vision loss globally, and an estimated 90% cases of visual impairment are reported to be caused due to such conditions. It is worth highlighting that a significant portion of these chronic ophthalmological disorders are clinical conditions related to the back of the eye.

The current treatment landscape for back of the eye disorders is characterized by the presence of blockbuster drugs, such as Lucentis and Eylea, and various other therapeutic options. Despite the success of these therapies, their invasive mode of administration, high dosage frequency and other drug related side effects, are some of the drawbacks that have an adverse impact on their therapeutic potential and adoption. Further, there are no treatment approaches available for a number of ophthalmological indications, such as dry age related macular degeneration (dry AMD), retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and leber congenital amaurosis.

In order to overcome these challenges, various stakeholders are engaged in the development of novel therapeutic approaches. With the entry of several start-ups that are driving the innovation in this domain, the pipeline has several novel product candidates in various stages of development. Companies are steadily collaborating to develop and commercialize their products globally, in-license intellectual property to design new treatment modalities and advance research initiatives in this domain.

The Back of the Eye Disorders: Novel Drugs and Delivery Technologies, 2017-2030' report features an extensive study of the market for novel drugs, drug-device combinations and technologies for the treatment of back of the eye disorders. The focus of this study is on the applications and the likely evolution of novel treatment options (excluding steroids and corticosteroids) in the mid to long term.

The evolving market has its hopes pinned on the efforts of multiple start-ups, small and large-sized companies. Amongst other elements, the report features:

  • A detailed assessment of the current market landscape of novel drugs, providing information on various drug / therapy developers, phase of development (clinical, preclinical or discovery stage) of product candidates, information on drug class, molecular target, type of therapy, mechanism of action, route of administration, and key therapeutic indication(s). In addition, we have provided a list of drug device combinations that target the back of the eye.
  • A world map representation, depicting the most active geographies in terms of the presence of companies developing drugs to treat back of the eye disorders.
  • A bull's eye analysis highlighting distribution of pipeline candidates in terms of phase of development, type of target and drug class. A grid analysis based on type of drug class developed / being developed across different indications and stages of development.
  • An elaborate discussion on lifecycle management strategies, depicting how companies are using various methods to expand patent exclusivity in order to exploit the revenue generation potential of their proprietary products.
  • Comprehensive profiles of clinical stage (phase II/III and above) drug candidates specifically targeting back of the eye disorders, highlighting their current status of development, mechanism of action, technology, patent portfolio, clinical trial information and recent developments.
  • A review of currently available technologies and delivery systems that are being used to administer therapeutics to the back of the eye, featuring brief profiles of the various technical advances, key benefits offered and information on the product candidates pipeline that are based on these technologies.
  • A discussion on various visual prosthesis that are available, highlighting their mechanism of action. In addition, we have provided a comparative 2X2 analysis of the different types visual prosthesis based on supplier power and product competitiveness.
  • An analysis of the partnerships that have been established in the recent past, covering R&D collaborations, license agreements, mergers and acquisitions, manufacturing and services agreements, and other relevant agreements.
  • A discussion on the key promotional strategies that have been adopted for marketing approved drugs, namely (based on the approval year) Macugen, Lucentis, Eylea and Jetrea, that are presently prescribed to treat back of the eye disorders.

One of the key objectives of the report was to understand the primary growth drivers and estimate the future size of the market. Based on various parameters, such as target patient population, likely adoption rates and expected pricing, we have provided an informed estimate on the likely evolution of the market in the short to mid-term and long term, for the period 2017-2030. To account for the uncertainties associated with the development of novel drugs and to add robustness to our model, we have provided three forecast scenarios, portraying the conservative, base and optimistic tracks of the market's evolution.
