In addition to this, the global market was worth US$ 479.0 Mn in 2018 and is anticipated to reach US$ 722.0 Mn by 20226. The increasing incidence of ocular diseases, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and refractive errors, is driving the ophthalmic laser market. As the drugs for treating ocular diseases is less, the demand for ophthalmic laser devices has come into existence.

Excimer Lasers Gain an Upper Hand Over Other Laser Types

In 2018, the excimer lasers among other types of ophthalmic lasers covered 39.2% of the global market. These lasers are used for procedures such as refractive error correction. Recent technological advancements are expected to boost the segment growth during the forecast period. The demand for ophthalmic laser systems is likely to increase in hospitals, ophthalmic laser centers, among others.

Market Registers Growth in North America as Increasing Number of the Patients Opt for LASIK Surgery

North America is expected to grow at a considerable rate in the global ophthalmic lasers market during the forecast years. Moreover, the region was valued at US$ 139.3 Mn in the year 2018. People in the U.S. are increasingly undergoing LASIK surgeries owing to the rising awareness about ophthalmic laser safety. Furthermore, healthcare providers are rapidly adopting ophthalmic lasers in the U.S. These factors are likely to enable growth in the market in North America.

The market in the Asia Pacific is yet to achieve growth as a large pool of patients are still dependent on contact lenses and eyeglasses. However, with the rising developments in technology, the healthcare providers in countries such as China, India, among others will adopt ophthalmology lasers.

Some of the Main Key Players Covered in the Report

  • IRIDEX Corporation
  • Lumenis
  • NIDEK CO., LTD.
  • Carl Ziess Meditec AG
  • Ellex Medical Lasers Ltd.
  • TOPCON CORPORATION
  • NoIR Laser Company, LLC
  • Lumibird

Technological Advancements Such as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty Propels Growth

The burgeoning population suffering from ocular diseases and technological advancements in ophthalmology are contributing to the growth of the market. “These technologies are expected to enhance the accuracy of ophthalmic laser treatment,” stated a lead analyst at Fortune Business Insights. Technologies such as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty or SLT are used to reduce the eye pressure in glaucoma. Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT is an imaging technique used to identify retinal disorders using quantitative data.

The rising awareness about the early diagnosis and preventive medical care are factors presenting a large patient pool suffering from ocular diseases. Furthermore, people across the world are increasingly becoming aware of the laser treatment methods for cataract, refractive errors, and glaucoma. This is further expected to stimulate growth in the market over the forecast years.

Contrary to this, there are countries where people aren’t completely aware of ophthalmic lasers. This is expected to impede the growth of the market in the forecast years. Also, the high costs associated with the ophthalmic laser procedures may hamper the market’ s growth. People in low-scale countries aren’t able to afford such treatment, which can eventually restrict the growth of the market to an extent.

Carl Zeiss’s VisuMax Receives FDA Approval to Bring Innovation in Laser Eye Surgery

The global ophthalmic laser market is semi-consolidated with the presence of three leading players. These players include Lumenis, TOPCON CORPORATION, and Ellex Medical Lasers, Ltd. covered the maximum share in the year 2018. These players are well-recognized and have a robust distribution network in the medical laser segment. Such factors are responsible for the dominance of these players. Several companies are focusing on to launch new products in order to strengthen their distribution channel.

For instance, Novartis AG (Alcon) announced FDA approval for LenSx in March 2018. The product has two indications, one for creating tunnels allowing placement of corneal rings, whereas the other is to create corneal pockets for effective placement of presbyopia-correcting inlays. Another company called Carl Zeiss Meditec AG announced FDA approval for VisuMax femtosecond laser system in September 2016. This system is used to perform small-incision lenticule extraction for refractive correction.

The report profiles some of the leading players functioning in the global ophthalmic laser market. These include IRIDEX Corporation, Ellex Medical Lasers Ltd., NIDEK CO., LTD., Lumibird, TOPCON CORPORATION, NoIR Laser Company, LLC, and Lumenis.

PlanetWatch activates innovative air quality monitoring in two key Italian cities and announces grant from the Algorand Foundation

gbafNews28

ST. GENIS-POUILLY, France, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — PlanetWatch, a French startup which is leveraging the Algorand blockchain to build a global air quality ledger, announced today that it has already activated over 100 sensors in the Italian cities of Milan and Taranto.

PlanetWatch builds its global air quality monitoring network by combining city specific partnership networks and the creation of a global community of individual air sensor owners.

Fast and seamless sensor deployment in these cities was achieved thanks to strong partnerships with Wiseair in Milan, a citizen association in Taranto and support from a grant from the Algorand Foundation.

C. Parrinello, PlanetWatch’s CEO said:

"The activation of dense sensor networks in Taranto and Milan is a major milestone for PlanetWatch. We are delivering cost-effective air quality monitoring solutions for cities worldwide. By leveraging citizen communities and associations, together with corporate partners and advanced technologies, we believe we can raise the standards of environmental monitoring and help protect public health. We are very grateful to the Algorand Foundation, Wiseair srl and the Taranto citizen association for their support towards our endeavours."

"We are delighted to support PlanetWatch in their global air quality monitoring network," said Sean Lee, CEO of the Algorand Foundation. "By building on a blockchain with the speed and scale of Algorand, PlanetWatch can be confident that as their network scales to millions of devices and daily measurements, Algorand will be able to comfortably handle data volumes, while making the data accessible to all."

C.A. Gaetaniello, Wiseair’s COO said:

"Wiseair’s mission is to involve urban communities in air quality monitoring to promote a clean air future. With the support of the Wiseair community, we distributed more than 100 air quality sensors all over the city. Thanks to our strong partnership with PlanetWatch the data collected will be validated and made accessible to all. Citizen science and technology are combined here to build a new model to fight against air pollution."

S. Fersini from Comitato Cittadini e Lavoratori Liberi e Pensanti said: "We advocate the closure of all highly polluting industrial plants in our city and we hope that these monitoring activities and subsequent developments will help studying the connection between the excess of diseases linked to pollution and industrial production and the need for change in European environmental legislation on allowed emissions."
