Dry Eye Syndrome is the dryness of eyes and can also be denoted as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS). It is caused by inadequate moisture or lubrication of the eye and inadequate and inappropriate formation of tears. Symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome include burning sensation, itching, aching, soreness and blurred vision. Untreated Dry eye syndrome leads to pain, ulcers, scars on the cornea, and can even end up in loss of vision. Dry eye syndrome can also be associated with autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome, radiation treatment, lupus, scleroderma, diabetes, Vitamin A Deficiency Xeropthalmia, refractive eye surgeries, such as laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Change in lifestyle, stress, age, poor dietary intake, more exposure to mobiles and laptops, frequent travelling and rising pollution levels also lead to dry eye syndrome.

Global prevalence of dry eye syndrome ranges from 20% to 50%. Of which APAC region alone accounts for around 40.8 % of dry eye population and high as 20.0% to 52.4% especially in the South east Asian regions. China and India are potential markets due to high prevalence of the disease. In the North American region, 6.8% of adult population in the United States have been diagnosed with dry eye syndrome (National Health and Wellness Survey) and the prevalence increases with age (2.7% in those 18 to 34 years old versus 18.6% in those ≥75 years old). The female population (8.5%) is most affected in comparison to the male population (4.5%).

The major challenge for treating dry eye syndrome is lack of awareness, adherence to treatment, minimalization  of continuous viewing mobiles, laptops, television, etc. that comes along with the modern lifestyle. Technological advancements and development of new drugs would provide market opportunities in the upcoming years. Besides many drugs are currently under development and are expected to create positive growth impact in the forecast period.

Increase in the prevalence of eye disorders, increase in geriatric population, growth in awareness about the diagnosis and treatment of the disease, and increase in use of contact lenses worldwide are said to be the key market drives. Whilst, self- directed medication and expiry of patents of the marketed products are expected to hamper the market growth.
