US Market Report for Tonometers 2017: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends - Research and Markets

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Tonometers 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.

This market includes non-contact and contact tonometers. The growth of the tonometer market will be driven by an increasing prevalence of age-related ocular conditions such as glaucoma. Because tonometers are normally attached to slit lamps, the market for tonometers is somewhat dependent on the slit lamp market. The market for non-contact tonometers is expected to remain fairly constant in value over the forecast period, with modest growth in unit sales being offset by price erosion. Contact tonometers, particularly of the portable electronic variety, have been replacing the use of non-contact tonometers in several regions. A limiting factor for non-contact tonometers is their high price when compared to their contact counterparts.

The growth of the contact tonometer market will be due to the increase in glaucoma cases among the aging population and the low price of contact tonometers compared to non-contact tonometers. Additionally, handheld contact tonometers, such as those manufactured by iCare and Reichert, are becoming increasingly popular due to ther low price and portability. A tonometer is a device that is used for measuring the intraocular pressure of an eye. Elevated intraocular pressure is associated with glaucoma, a disease that is characterized by the degeneration of the optic nerve. Tonometers are segmented into contact or non-contact types.

The market for contact tonometers consists of both Goldmannn tonometers and portable electronic, or hand held, tonometers. Portable electronic tonometers have been on the market for approximately 25 years. However, these devices have recently had success in new areas. In particular, optometrists have been adopting handheld devices in recent years. Goldmannn and handheld contact tonometers are not direct competitors. Most ophthalmologists have a Goldmannn but many are also interesting in having a handheld device on hand as a secondary tonometer.
