Glaucoma therapeutics market players remain largely invested in the development of new products and optimizing production to enable easier recovery of the market after the coronavirus contagion.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2020 / The global glaucoma therapeutics market is expected to expand to a US$ 7.6 Bn valuation by 2026. The Fact.MR report says, the coronavirus outbreak has resulted in suspended operations of ophthalmic practices, with treatments often being postponed. Consequently, the demand for glaucoma therapeutics solutions has gone down significantly. In addition, the production of associated drugs has also slumped, as a large section of pharmaceutical resources have been directed towards the covid-19 crisis.

'Innovations in diagnostic tools and an expanding demographic of elderly patients are key factors that aid the growth of the glaucoma therapeutics market. Further, awareness programs in emerging economies will also contribute to growth of the industry post pandemic,' says the FACT.MR report.
