Increasing Number of Pipeline Products under Development to Spur Growth

As of 2020, the website shows that at present, around 70 ongoing studies associated with glaucoma therapeutics exist. It proves that there are similar other pipeline products for the treatment of this condition that are currently under the development stage. Apart from that, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has raised the demand for glaucoma therapeutics across the globe as several government healthcare facilities have postponed all the surgeries related to this condition. Hence, people are on a rat race to stock up medications to delay the progression of glaucoma.

However, several regulatory recall cases of such products are generating fear and skepticism among the patient and healthcare professionals. This factor may hamper the glaucoma therapeutics market growth in the forthcoming years.
