The Global Hand-Held Slit Lamps Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period from 2021-2028 and is expected to be worth USD 12.0 billion by 2028. Factors such as the rising incidence of eye diseases, growing prevalence of blindness, and increasing awareness about Eyecare among people are driving the growth in the demand for handheld slit lamps globally.
The Hand Held Slit Lamp is a type of slit lamp that provides the user with mobility and flexibility. It typically includes an illuminated handle and one or two eyepieces (monocular, binocular). They are equipped for examining both anterior as well as posterior sections of the eye. The devices can be used on animals in veterinary hospitals but also in other applications such as ophthalmology clinics.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Monocular Hand-held Slit Lamp and Binocular Hand-held Slit Lamp. The monocular handheld slit lamp segment is expected to account for the largest market share in terms of value, by the 2028 end owing to the higher installation rates as compared with binocular lamps.
A monocular hand-held slit lamp is a specialized device that allows for examination and treatment of the eye, either by an ophthalmologist or optometrist. It has two eyepieces which are usually fitted with ground glass lenses to form a single viewfinder; one lens takes in light from below while the other captures it from above. The tube end can be closed off to examine only one eye at a time, something which becomes more important when examining patients who have had cataract surgery on both eyes.
A binocular slit lamp is a medical device that allows examination of the inside of the eyes. Along with ophthalmoscopes, they are often used for eye examinations in primary care settings. Binocular hand-held slit lamps are lightweight and portable, making them ideal to take on vacation or when traveling abroad. They can be connected to an external power source if needed as well as function on batteries that lasts up to eight hours per charge.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Ophthalmology, Veterinary Hospital, and Others.
In Ophthalmology, Hand-Held Slit Lamp is widely used for examining the external and internal eyes. They are mostly used as LED lights to provide illumination during surgery of retina or cornea which helps surgeons diagnose conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, etc. They help provide a detailed view of the retina and evaluate symptoms such as optical nerve swelling, retinal detachment, cataracts, etc.
In Veterinary Hospitals, Hand-Held Slit Lamp is widely used for examining different animals' eyes including dogs, cats bulls horses among others. It helps identify a range of conditions that affect pets ranging from mild infections to severe injuries like head trauma wounds caused by dog fights.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
The North American market is the largest segment and accounts for over 60% of the share in terms of value. The market in this region was driven by a number of factors such as an increase in cases related to eye diseases, increasing awareness among the general population about ophthalmology services, government initiatives to improve healthcare facilities, and rising demand for medical consumables
The Latin American market accounted for more than 16% shares with a significant growth rate due to increased spending on health care projects coupled with a large pool of patients suffering from various eye-related disorders. Countries such as Brazil are expected to be major contributors towards driving this regional market owing to high incidence rates of retinal detachment and macular degeneration.
In Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa, the demand for slit lamps are expected to rise in tandem with growing awareness of eye-related diseases and increasing healthcare expenditure.
The global hand-held slit lamps market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The growth in this market is attributed to an increase in the aging population, a rise in the prevalence of ophthalmic diseases, and increasing adoption of mobile healthcare services worldwide. In addition, the marketing initiatives undertaken by big players have also boosted its demand. Furthermore, technological innovations such as spectrum analyzers equipped with ultraviolet spectrophotometry are likely to drive more demand for these products. However, a lack of awareness about the benefits of using a handheld slit lamp may hinder its growth over time.
