The Dry Eye Products Market Growth impelled by rising incidence of dry eye and growing geriatric population; while market for Hormone Drops to Grow at highest CAGR during forecast period (2020–2027).Pune, India., May 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dry Eye Products Market: Key InsightsAccording to our new research study on “Dry Eye Products Market to 2027 – Global Analysis and Forecast – by Product and Type,” the Dry Eye Products Market Size was valued at US$ 6,385.14 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 9,141.01 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2020–2027. Rising incidence of dry eye and growing geriatric population are expected to boost the growth of the global dry eye products market. Dry Eye Products Market: Competition Landscape and Key DevelopmentsNovartis AG; Santen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd; Johnson and Johnson Services, Inc; OASIS Medical; URSAPHARM Arzneimittel GmbH; ROHTO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd; OCuSOFT Inc; Bausch Health Companies Inc; AbbVie Inc; and Prestige Consumer Healthcare Inc. are among the key companies operating in the dry eye products market. The companies have utilized organic strategies such as launches, expansion, and product approvals. Moreover, inorganic strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, partnership, and collaborations, were widely seen in the dry eye products market. In January 2020, Santen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd announced the opening of a new manufacturing plant in China. This was a part of business expansion plan by the company. Get Exclusive Sample Pages of Dry Eye Products Market - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis with Strategic Insights at https://www.theinsightpartners.com/sample/TIPRE00012323/ In June 2020, OCuSOFT Inc. and EKKDA Research, LLC entered into a sales-distribution agreement. This partnership will help the partners to establish and develop ophthalmology and optometry related business. EKKDA’s research LLC's projects are focused fundamentally on eye care. In 2019, North America dominated the global dry eye products market. The market growth in the region is attributed to key factors such as increase in incidence of dry eye, rise in demand for dry eye products, presence of various companies, increase in government support, and surge in healthcare expenditure. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology data for 2019, in 2012, the total prevalence of dry eye condition increased by 5.28% in all age groups. The percentage for females increased by 7.78%, and in males, it increased by 2.96%. Similarly, according to the National Health and Wellness Survey data published in 2020, 6.8% of the adult population in the US was diagnosed with dry eye in 2017. The increasing incidence of dry eye is expected to boost the demand for dry eye products during the forecast period. Based on product, the dry eye products market is segmented into antibiotic drops, hormone drops, artificial tears, and others. The artificial tears segment held ~49.32% of the market share in 2019. In terms of type, the dry eye products market is segmented into OTC Drugs and prescription drugs; The OTC segment held larger market share in 2019, and it is further anticipated to register a significant CAGR during 2020–2027. The incidence and prevalence of dry eye are rising among the population, especially in developed nations. Dry eye is caused by multiple factors that result in discomfort, irritation, and visual disturbance. For instance, in April 2020, according to a study “National Health and Wellness Survey” conducted in the US, ~16.4 million people were diagnosed with dry eye. The data also stated that the prevalence has gone up by 2.7% among the people of age 18−34 years. Additionally, the prevalence was 18.6% among older people. Based on sex, the percentage of prevalence was higher in women; it accounted for 8.8% than men with 4.5%. Download Sample PDF Brochure of Dry Eye Products Market Growth Research Report at https://www.theinsightpartners.com/sample/TIPRE00012323/ The incidence of dry eye is higher among the population in Europe and Asia Pacific. Regions like the Middle East & Africa also have increasing prevalence due to the chronic health conditions and environmental conditions. According to an article published in 2019 by the Department of Research, King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the incidence of dry eye is high among women. The primary cause of dry eye is the medication of glaucoma. The rising incidence of dry eye is leading to increase in direct cost of treatment. According to the Ocular Surgery News, the annual direct cost for mild dry eye symptom treatment was US$ 678, for moderate dry eye symptom was US$ 771, and for the severe dry eye symptom was US$ 1,267. Thus, the increasing prevalence of dry eye is expected to drive the dry eye products market. The outbreak of COVID-19 has negatively influenced the ophthalmic industry. Companies manufacturing ophthalmic products have faced losses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some companies have enough funds to sustain during the lockdown period. The lockdown situation has resulted in a decrease in number of visits to healthcare facilities centers, and fewer prescriptions have been issued for ophthalmic conditions. Therefore, it has affected various companies' sources of revenue generation. Buy Copy of Dry Eye Products Market Research Study at https://www.theinsightpartners.com/buy/TIPRE00012323/ Dry Eye Products Market: Segmental OverviewIn terms of type, the prescription drugs segment is anticipated to register higher CAGR in the dry eye products market during the forecast period. Doctors usually prescribe eye drops when enough results are not obtained by the over-the-counter teardrops. In 2019, Novartis acquired Xiidra from Takeda Pharmaceutical, which is FDA approved for the treatment of dry eye disease caused by inflammation on the surface of the eye. Restasis from Allergan Inc. provides relief from dry eye disease. It helps in reducing inflammation and promoting tear production. Cyclosporine eye drops are recommended for long term use in chronic dry eye. Furthermore, in 2019, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. launched CEQUA ophthalmic solution for the treatment of keratoconjunctivitis sicca for the US market. In terms of product, the artificial tears segment accounted for more than 45% share of the dry eye products market in 2019.

OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says the economy lost 207,000 jobs in April as a new rise in COVID-19 cases led to renewed public health restrictions that closed businesses. The unemployment rate rose to 8.1 per cent from 7.5 per cent in March. Statistics Canada says the number of employed people in April working less than half their usual hours increased by 288,000 or 27.2 per cent. The losses in April nearly wiped out the 303,000 jobs added in March when the economy outpaced expectations and put the country about 503,100 jobs, or 2.6 per cent below pre-pandemic levels. More losses were seen in full-time work than part-time work, with the figures respectively at 129,000 and 78,000, with the retail sector and young workers hit hardest. Total hours worked fell 2.7 per cent, that TD senior economist Sri Thanabalasingam said could indicate a reversal in the overall economic recovery in April. The ranks of the long-term unemployed climbed to 486,000 as about 21,000 more workers crossed the threshold of being without a job for six months or more. Among them are 312,000 workers who have been unemployed for a year, having lost jobs during the plunge in the labour market during the first wave of the pandemic when three million jobs were lost over March and April 2020. Prior to the pandemic, there were only 99,000 workers who had been unemployed for at least a year, the statistics agency noted. Regionally, Ontario saw a drop of 153,000 positions in April, and British Columbia witnessed its first decrease in employment since a historic plunge in the labour market in April 2020. Statistics Canada said the unemployment rate would have been 10.5 per cent in March had it included in calculations Canadians who wanted to work but didn’t search for a job. The latest setback in the labour market will carry a longer-term impact on the workers and businesses affected, said Leah Nord, senior director of workforce strategies with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. Some companies may close for good, and workers may take longer to find new positions, she said. "Our collective focus is currently on the light at the end of the vaccine tunnel, but we risk losing sight of the continued turbulence in the labour market — and what that means for the Canadians bearing the brunt of it," she said in a statement. Lockdowns and tight restrictions have continued into this month and could mean more losses show up when Statistics Canada reveals May's jobs report, said CIBC senior economist Royce Mendes. "The good news," he writes in a note, "is that the curve is bending in some regions of the country and vaccinations are picking up pace, both of which should help the labour market begin to recover in June." This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 7, 2021. Jordan Press, The Canadian Press
