Surge in incidence of autoimmune disease is expected to be a factor for increasing demand for uveitis treatment. Corticosteroids are emerging as a potential option for the treatment of uveitis and is expected to propel growth of the global uveitis treatment market. According to a study published in the Journal of Ophthalmology in 2014, it was observed that 88% of the patients suffering with Uveitis can be cured with the help of sustained-release intraocular corticosteroids.
According to the Clinical Investigation Department of the Open Access Journals, 2013, number of research studies on various new treatments by companies and research institutes for treatment of uveitis is increasing, which is known to be one of the leading cause of blindness in the U.S. Treatments such as next-generation calcineurin inhibitors that inhibits T-cell proliferation are also being studied for potential treatment for uveitis. Furthermore, a number of innovations in treatment of uveitis were reported in 2015–2017, through FDA approvals. For instance, AbbVie Pharmaceutical Company’s HUMIRA (adalimumab) received U.S. FDA approval in June 2016, which is the first and only FDA-approved non-corticosteroid therapy for non-infectious intermediate, posterior and Panuveitis. Among disease types, the anterior uveitis treatment segment is expected to witness significant traction over the forecast years owing to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as eye trauma, mumps and rubella. Moreover, anterior uveitis is the most commonly encountered type of uveitis among the other types and is another factor driving growth of the segment.
