High prevalence of glaucoma in emerging economies is demanding for awareness programs which could educate people about the disease and treatment options. It has been estimated that more than ten million people were suffering from glaucoma in 2015, around one-tenth among them were blind. Similarly, it has been predicted that Glaucoma was leading cause of blindness in Hong Kong and the diseases resulted in blindness in approximately two million people in China in 2015. These statistics clearly advocated the need of spreading awareness about glaucoma and available treatment options. A study conducted in India by Department of Ophthalmology, SDM College of Medical Sciences and Hospital, Sattur, Dharwad, Karnataka clearly defined the unawareness about glaucoma in the market. It was concluded that minimal share of the total subjects recruited for the study were aware about glaucoma or had any knowledge about the disease. These statistics have attracted the attention of various NGOs and government to spread awareness about the glaucoma and associated treatment options. The key awareness programs included National Program for Control of Blindness in India, Orbis Flying Eye Hospital (FEH) Program in China, Prime Healthcare Group Glaucoma Awareness Campaign in UAE, IAPB Vision 2020 Workshop in Indonesia, and Malaysia Glaucoma Society in Malaysia.


In order to penetrate into the growing glaucoma treatment drugs market, the market players could plan to invest in emerging economies of Asia and Latin America especially India and China. The companies should expand their marketing and sales initiatives in these countries for providing medications in less time. Moreover, the companies could also plan to establish their manufacturing units in Asian countries. This would result in availability of medications in fewer prices to the patients in cost sensitive markets” according to Research Analyst, Ken Research.
