Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a bilateral ocular disease that affects the central area of the retina known as the macula. age-related macular degeneration considers sales from both wet AMD, dry AMD. Our analysis also considers the sales of AMD in Asia, Europe, North America and ROW. In 2018, the wet AMD segment had a significant market share, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Factors such as the increasing use of VEGF inhibitors, which are used for the treatment of wet AMD will play a significant role in the wet AMD segment to maintain its market position. Also, our global age-related macular degeneration market report also looks at factors such as high prevalence of AMD, strong pipeline and expected approvals, and rising geriatric populations. However, lack of approved therapies for dry AMD, introduction of biosimilars, side effects of available therapeutics may hamper the growth of the age-related macular degeneration industry over the forecast period.
Global Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Therapeutics Market: Overview
High prevalence of AMD
The prevalence of AMD is extremely high, owing to the presence of high-risk factors for developing the condition. Risk factors such as aging, smoking, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure are the major contributors to the development of AMD. Moreover, despite the high prevalence of AMD, no approved therapies are available in the market for the treatment of the condition. Thus, the high prevalence coupled with the huge unmet medical need of dry AMD is expected to drive the market at a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period.
Development of gene therapy for AMD
There is a huge unmet need for safe and novel drugs to treat AMD. The currently available anti-VEGF therapies require repetitive and inconvenient intraocular injections. Owing to factors such as inconvenience and discomfort associated with frequent injections in the eye, patient compliance is a significant concern with anti-VEGF therapies. Hence, several companies are working on novel drugs against AMD, among which gene therapy is expected to cure the disease effectively. Hence, the development of gene therapy is expected to be a positive trend for the global AMD therapeutics market.
