Macular Edema Epidemiology Forecast for 7MM is Available in GlobalData New Report Recently Added at MarketPublishers.com14 Dec 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Macular edema (ME) is known as a health condition, that is characterised by the thickening and swelling (or edema) of the macula, which is the area of the retina that is responsible for central vision. Macular edema occurs frequently in diabetics and is usually called diabetic macular edema (DME). Patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) are also in a high risk of developing macular edema; there are two major types of this diseases: central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) and branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO).
Across the 7 major markets (7MM) globally (namely the US, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and Japan), the number of diagnosed prevalent cases of diabetic macular edema in the diagnosed retinopathy population exceeded 980 thousand cases in 2016. This figure is anticipated to increase by appr. 31.29% during 2017-2026, registering a 3.13% AGR, to cross 1.286 million cases by late 2026.
The total number of prevalent cases of macular edema following BRVO across the 7MM stood at over 307.3 thousand in 2016, and it is poised to surpass the 347.39 thousand mark in the year 2026. Meantime, the total number of prevalent cases of macular edema following CRVO is set to increase from over 125.32 thousand cases in 2016 to exceed 149.22 thousand cases in 2026, registering a 1.91% AGR in the year ahead.
New report “EpiCast Report: Macular Edema - Epidemiology Forecast to 2026” worked out by GlobalData presents a great source of qualitative and quantitative data on the macular edema (ME) market performance and trends across the seven major country-wide markets (the US, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and Japan). It gives a comprehensive overview of the major risk factors, discusses the historical development trends, describes the actual situation in the market as well as traces light on the market dynamics and the main forces influencing it. Besides, this report offers 10-year epidemiological forecasts for the diagnosed prevalent cases of macular edema and its types.
