Market Overview:

The global tonometer market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of eye diseases, rising geriatric population, and technological advancements in tonometers. Based on type, the global tonometer market is segmented into hand-held tonometers and desktop tonometers. The hand-held segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR than the desktop segment during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. This growth can be attributed to factors such as ease of use and portability of hand-held devices. Based on application, the global tonometer market is divided into hospitals, home care settings, and other applications (including research institutes and clinics). The hospitals segment dominates this market owing to increased awareness about eye health among patients as well as healthcare professionals across different regions worldwide.

Global Tonometer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A tonometer is an instrument used to measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) of the eye. IOP is a measure of the force that the fluid in the eye exerts against its walls.

Hand-held Tonometer:

Hand-held tonometer is a diagnostic device used for measuring the intraocular pressure in humans. It's major application includes glaucoma and other ocular diseases, hypertension, and diabetes.

Desktop Tonometer:

The desktop tonometer is a device used to measure the ambient air temperature with the help of a mercury-in-glass bulb. It is also known as a mercury-in-glass thermometer or liquid column thermometer. The term “tonometer” generally refers to an instrument that measures body temperature, but can also be used for measuring room or ambient air temperatures.

The global market for desktop tonometers was estimated at USD 31 million in 2016.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes clinics, diagnostic centers and laboratories. The hospital application segment dominated the overall market in 2017 due to high product demand for ophthalmic care. This is mainly due to an increase in the prevalence of diseases such as glaucoma, myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (distorted vision at all distances) and presbyopia among other ophthalmic disorders.

Tonometry devices are used for a wide range of applications including eye care, hearing tests andolesterol testing among others. In recent years, there has been an increased demand for cholesterol testing kits that do not require a blood sample; these kits are used by patients who have already had their cholesterol tested through blood samples taken from them at hospitals or clinical facilities.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global tonometer market in 2017. The increasing prevalence of diabetes and hypertension, rising geriatric population, high adoption of digital devices for diagnosis and treatment, and the presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure are some major factors responsible for its large share. In addition, favorable reimbursement policies that cover a part or full cost of tonometers have also contributed to its large share.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period owing to an increase in diabetic retinopathy patients suffering from blindness due to diabetes as well as other reasons such as smoking and UV exposure (cyclic stress). Moreover, an increase in per capita income coupled with growing awareness about early detection will drive demand further. Furthermore, government initiatives such as “Healthy Eyes 2020” aimed at reducing avoidable blindness by promoting eye health are expected to propel growth during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing prevalence of eye diseases and disorders: The global prevalence of blindness is expected to double from 39 million in 1990 to 80 million by 2020. This is primarily due to the increasing aging population, which is more susceptible to eye diseases and disorders.
  • Rising awareness about eye health: There has been a growing awareness among people about the importance of eye health and the need for regular checkups. This has led to an increase in demand for ophthalmic devices such as tonometers.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new technologies has helped improve the accuracy and precision of tonometers, thus driving their adoption rates worldwide.
  • Growing demand from emerging markets: A large number of people in emerging markets such as China, India, Brazil, etc., are suffering from various types of vision problems due to changing lifestyles and increasing pollution levels These countries offer significant growth potential for the tonometer market players .
