Growing adoption of process automation and industrial robots to increase the market growth
The primary driver of the global demand for artificial tears is the rising number of dry eye syndrome (DES) cases. This syndrome is ultimately caused by forces such as excessive digital display exposure, chronic conjunctivitis, poor eyelid, eye injury scars, daily air travel, poor diet, malnutrition, increasing pollution levels, dry weather spells, and extreme climatic changes. The economic role of consumers in developing regions is another factor expected to drive the growth of the global demand for artificial tears. As the per capita consumption of artificial tear products in several developing countries is low compared to that of developed countries, consumption of meagerly priced artificial tear products among them is expected to increase. The increasing prevalence of free artificial tears, technical advancements, the increasing demand for advanced treatment for dry eyes after surgery, the increasing number of mobile and smartphone addicts, and the growing number of people wearing contact lenses.
High cost of industrial automation systems and privacy concerns to hinder the market growth
The use of artificial tears is associated with many side effects such as blurred vision, long-term discomfort, and so on, which poses a major challenge for the artificial tears industry. Some preservatives, which have many adverse effects on eye health, are used in artificial tears. The production of different medicines capable of minimizing the discomfort caused by dry eye syndrome also restricts the growth of the market for artificial tears.
In terms of value and volume, APAC accounted for XX% of total market volume share in 2019
As a result of the low-income status of APAC and Latin American consumers and the availability of a wide variety of artificial tear products and varieties, the markets in these regions are likely to display potential growth in the coming years. APAC is positioned to rise at a higher pace compared with North America and Europe. This rise can be due to the increasing number of people aged and the increasing occurrence of DES patients in these regions.
The region segment can be further divided into five major types including North America, Latin America, Europe, APAC, and MENA.
