Global Open-Angle Glaucoma Therapeutics Market: About this market

Open-angle glaucoma is a condition of the eye that leads to progressive atrophy of the optic nerve in the presence of an open angle. This open-angle glaucoma therapeutics market analysis considers sales from both prostaglandin analogs (PGAs) and non-prostaglandin analogs (NPAs). Our analysis also considers the sales of open-angle glaucoma therapeutics in Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW. In 2018, the PGAs segment had a significant market share, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Factors such as first-line treatment option and increasing use of a combination of PGAs with other drugs will play a significant role in the PGAs segment to maintain its market position. Also, our global open-angle glaucoma therapeutics market report looks at factors such as promising pipeline and recent approvals and increasing demand for combination drugs. However, uncertainties in the advances in glaucoma surgery, low patient adherence of topical medications, and asymptomatic nature of open-angle glaucoma may hamper the growth of the glaucoma therapeutics industry over the forecast period.
