Allergic Conjunctivitis Market Size 2021 | Is Projected to Reach USD 3.60 Billion by 2028, Exhibiting a CAGR of 5.4%

Pune, India, July 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global allergic conjunctivitis market size is projected to reach USD 3.60 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. The value of the market was estimated to be USD 2.40 billion in 2020 and is expected to touch USD 2.50 billion in 2021, as per the report by Fortune Business Insights™, titled “Allergic Conjunctivitis Market, 2021-2028”.

Increasing Research into Drug Efficacy to Boost the Market

Allergic eye diseases and conditions require the administration of medications that can provide considerable relief from the discomfort and possible pain from these conditions. As a result, a few companies and academic institutions are conducting intensive research to investigate the efficacy of novel therapeutics for ocular allergies. For example, in March 2021, a team from the Shanghai Jiaotong University, China, studied the effectiveness of an innovative delivery system of pemirolast potassium-loaded gellan gum in situ gel for allergic conjunctivitis. The study showed that the gel exhibited excellent stability and did not damage any part of the eye during delivery. In April 2021, according to a study published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology, Dextenza by Ocular Therapeutix can relieve ocular itching in patients suffering from this disease for nearly four weeks. Such studies are raising the potential of novel treatments for this form of conjunctivitis and fueling the growth of the market.

Regulatory Clearances to Novel Medications to Support Market Growth

Recognizing the need for treating allergic conjunctivitis, regulatory bodies such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are actively green lighting novel therapies that can effectively tackle the condition and provide relief to patients. For example, in March 2021, Ocular Therapeutix’s DEXTENZA was accepted for review by the USFDA and if approved, the drug would carry an additional indication of treating ocular itching commonly associated with allergen-based conjunctivitis. Similarly, in January 2018, Alocril by Allergan was approved by the USFDA for treating eye itching in allergic conjunctivitis. The proven safety of the drug also allows it to be used on children as young as three. Supportive regulatory environment for ocular therapies and medications are, thus, proving highly beneficial for this market.
