Visiongain predicts that the world market for ocular drugs will grow strongly from 2012 to 2022. It will be stimulated by increasing prevalence of eye disorders among aging populations. Some national treatment markets will grow fast; others will expand slowly.

Sustained-release ocular implants, gene therapy and RNA interference technology will influence R&D, as will neuroprotective agents for glaucoma. Pipeline developments have strong potential. In 2012, under-met treatment needs remain.

New products - novel small molecules, generics and biologics - will change the sector. Many commercial opportunities for ophthalmic drugs exist, with high revenues possible to 2022. This report shows and explains.
