Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is an allergic eye disease. It is a multifactorial Th2 cell-mediated ocular surface inflammatory state that primarily affects males, specifically to children. Intense itching, burning, photophobia, and tears are the most common symptoms. The most common signs are conjunctival hyperaemia, superficial keratitis, and giant papillae. The overexpression of mast cells, Th2 cells, cytokines, eosinophils, adhesion molecules, chemokines, and cytokines are characteristics of the vernal keratoconjunctivitis. Limbal infiltration, corneal involvement, conjunctival fibroproliferative lesions, and conjunctival hyperemia are the features of vernal keratoconjunctivitis. Mixed, palpebral, and limbal are the three types of vernal keratoconjunctivitis, which are based on the main anatomical site of the papillary reaction.
The global vernal keratoconjunctivitis market is estimated to be valued at US$ 346.9 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period (2021-2028).

Growing incidences of vernal keratoconjuctivities in young adults and children living in warm environment, is estimated to spur the market growth during the forecast period.
Rising incidences of vernal keratoconjuctivities mainly in young adults and children living in warm environment, is anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period. In dark-skinned population from Africa and India, the limbal form of vernal keratoconjunctivities is seen most frequently. For instance, in August 2021, Western Europe incidences were 3.2 in 10,000, whereas in Italy, a country with a Mediterranean climate, a higher prevalence ranging from 2.4 to 27.8 in 10,000 were observed.

Global Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Several clinicians and patients requested better suggestion for the treatment of vernal keratoconjunctivities patients in the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the patients and doctors were following the recommendations given by scientific societies such as Indian Journal of Ophthalmology. Recently, considering the various difficulties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, despite the fact that patients require treatments, vernal keratoconjuctivitis has not been prioritised. Topical medicines are the primary line of treatment for types of vernal keratoconjuctivitis with topical corticosteroids added in severe cases of vernal keratoconjunctivitis, even in the patients are at risk of COVID-19.
