2018 IOL Report: A Global Market Analysis for 2017 to 2023

Our report on the IOL market is now in its 18th edition. It is the leading industry source for accurate and relevant information on all aspects of the intraocular lens (IOL) market. We provide data and five-year forecasts for cataracts and cataract surgeries worldwide. We discuss currently marketed IOLs and analyze demand in units, dollars and market share. We explore new IOL technologies in the development pipeline. We cover patient-based economics and reimbursement, and we explore strategies for success in the marketplace. Worldwide markets are analyzed using eight regional/economic categories: the US, Western Europe, Japan, Other Wealthy Nations, China, India, Latin America, and Rest of World.


Our report focuses on changes occurring in the competitive landscape. For example, for the first time in decades, we are seeing a reduction in the total number of IOL companies due to consolidations and failures. Just five companies in our tier one category, with projected 2018 IOL revenues exceeding $150 million, now account for two-thirds of IOL revenues.

We characterize the trend of IOL companies expanding their cataract product lines to other cataract surgical devices such as phaco machines, ophthalmic viscosurgical devices, disposable instruments and knives, fluid management devices, and surgical packs.

We profile more than 70 IOL companies, with descriptions of their product offerings and estimates of current yearly IOL revenues. We list and rank the major competitors by revenues and market share for each of our eight regional or economic categories: the US, Western Europe, Japan, Other Wealthy Nations (OWN), China, India, Latin America, and Rest of World (ROW). We also look at sales in 145 countries to construct the Market Scope global IOL unit and revenue forecast. The report provides sales forecasts for 2017 to 2023 by type of IOL in units and dollars for our eight categories.

Our 2018 IOL Report was released in April 2018. The report is printed in color and is spiral bound for easy reading.
