Lacrimal Devices Market is expected to reach US$ 39.7 Million by the end of 2029

The lacrimal devices market is expected to reach US$ 39.7 million by the end of 2029, with sales revenue expected to register 5.5% CAGR. The Global Lacrimal Devices market growth is predicted to expand at a 5.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), with a market value of roughly US$ 25.6 million in 2021.

Lacrimal devices like Nasolacrimal stents are small tubes which establishes a new channel for tears to drain. When the usual tear ducts fail and alternative drainage mechanisms are unavailable, they provide a bypass path for tear drainage. Graue employed the first described stent, which was constructed of silver wire and used in 1932.

Since then, numerous materials such as silk, nylon, polyethylene, and polypropylene have been employed. The tubes are usually made of silicone or another semi-rigid yet flexible material with an open centre lumen.

The increased demand for ophthalmic treatments with greater success rates and minimum intrusions, as well as an increase in patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction, are driving the worldwide lacrimal devices market.

During the projected period, the introduction of innovative and high-success-rate treatments will move the market forward. Adoption of precise and updated lacrimal devices, such as the new lacrimal cannula, which combines flexibility and strength to prevent trauma by providing easy access to the canaliculus, is a fundamental driver of market expansion.

Manufacturers Emphasizing Advanced Product Development

Numerous organizations are focusing on new product development for lacrimal duct stent tube. In June 2019, FCI Ophthalmic offered a complete line of BIKA stents namely, BIKA, BIKA for DCR, and Infant BIKA covering a range of sizes that will benefit most of the congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) cases.
