Market Insight

Conjunctivitis is a common cause of eye redness that can affect people of any age, demographic, or socioeconomic status. It is a common eye condition that affects more than 2% of the global population annually. Viral, allergic, and bacterial conjunctivitis are the three most common types of conjunctivitis among the population. A wide variety of drugs and treatments are used to cure and relieve the symptoms of conjunctivitis. Bacterial conjunctivitis is treated with ophthalmic antibiotic eye drops or ointments, while, antihistamines are prescribed to treat allergic conjunctivitis. Viral conjunctivitis does not have any treatments, however, over-the-counter topical antihistamines and decongestants are used to relieve symptoms. The global conjunctivitis market is characterized by the presence of several treatments.


In the backdrop of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the way the health and development communities are operating is rapidly changing. Routine out-patient visits and elective surgeries have been advised to be suspended by ophthalmic societies and by the government. Further, travel restrictions, reprioritization of health resources, and economic consequences are impacting the work of many organizations. Healthcare professionals need to attend to the patients requiring emergency ophthalmic interventions during this pandemic. All these factors together are anticipated to hamper the market over the short term. However, it is stated that the COVID-19 virus can cause ocular complications such as conjunctivitis, which may not be seen in the early stages of the disease. Though every patient in the present scenario could be a potential source of COVID-19, patients with conjunctivitis are being treated with greater fear, due to the possibility of having symptom of COVID-19 and the probable risk of transmission from tears of patients. This, in turn, is expected to boost the market growth for a shorter period.


The increasing prevalence of conjunctivitis patients across the globe and rising awareness among the population about pink eye disease are the key driving factors for the growth of the conjunctivitis market. The entry of new drugs and the increasing need for effective medication for viral conjunctivitis are the key considering factors for the growth of the conjunctivitis market. However, unfavorable government regulations and expiring drug patents have impeded the demand for branded drugs restraining the growth of this market. Furthermore, there are no approved drugs for the treatment of viral conjunctivitis, many companies are developing drugs that are expected to aid in the treatment of viral conjunctivitis and their effect will turn into a prominent opportunity to promote the growth of this market over the forecast period.


The global conjunctivitis market has been regionally segmented into the geographies of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW. From a regional perspective, the North American region is expected to dominate the market, attributed to the growing number of conjunctivitis cases and the increasing demand for effective drugs. It is estimated that around 6 million new cases of viral conjunctivitis occur annually in the United States. Furthermore, the global market for conjunctivitis has largely benefitted from a wide range of affordable generic medications availability. Further, Asia Pacific will witness rapid growth in the forecast period owing to the rapidly growing population and growing awareness about medicines for treating conjunctivitis.
