According to the World Health Organization, close to 250 million individuals, including 36 million blind people, presently suffer from some form of vision impairment. Further, a recent study published in September 2017 estimates that the number of blind people is likely to increase to 38.5 million, by 2020, and to 115 million, by 2050. 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:
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.
The opinions and insights presented in the report were also influenced by discussions held with senior stakeholders in the industry. These include Elise Brownell (Senior Vice President of Operations and Project Management, Amarantus Bioscience), Quinton Oswald (President and CEO, Neurotech Pharmaceuticals) and Samantha Cobb (CEO, AdAlta). All actual figures have been sourced and analyzed from publicly available information forums and primary research discussions. Financial figures mentioned in this report are in USD, unless otherwise specified.
The data presented in this report has been gathered via secondary and primary research. For all our projects, we conduct interviews with experts in the area (academia, industry, medical practice and other associations) to solicit their opinions on emerging trends in the market. This is primarily useful for us to draw out our own opinion on how the market will evolve across different regions and technology segments. Where possible, the available data has been checked for accuracy from multiple sources of information.
The secondary sources of information include
While the focus has been on forecasting the market over the coming 13 years, the report also provides our independent view on various technological and non-commercial trends emerging in the industry. This opinion is solely based on our knowledge, research and understanding of the relevant market gathered from various secondary and primary sources of information.
Chapter 2 is an executive summary of the insights captured in our research. The summary offers a high-level view on the likely evolution of the back of the eye disorders market in the short-mid and long term.
Chapter 3 features a discussion on the general concepts related to the structure of the human eye, primarily focusing on the various disorders associated with the back of the eye. It provides information on the static, dynamic and metabolic barriers that have a significant impact on drug delivery to the back of the eye. The chapter also features a discussion on the different routes used to administer drugs into the eye. In addition, it covers details on the available treatment options (drug classes that have been approved or are currently under development) and drug delivery approaches for back of the eye disorders.
Chapter 4 includes information on over 175 therapeutics that are currently approved or are in different stages of development. It features a comprehensive analysis of the pipeline molecules, highlighting the drug developer, target indication, phase of development, drug class, type of therapy, mechanism of action and route of administration.
