Pharmapoint: Macular edema market forecast to 2026 insights shared in detailed report

Medical Market Research

Macular Edema (ME) is a condition characterized by the thickening and swelling (edema) of the macula, which is the area of the retina that is responsible for central vision.

The occurrence of ME is highly frequent in diabetics and usually manifests itself as DME, a complication of diabetic retinopathy, and is the most common cause of vision loss in patients affected by diabetes mellitus.

In addition the risk for ME is also higher in patients with retinal vein occlusion, a common condition in the elderly, which consists of two types: branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).

The current standard of care for macular edema focuses around the use of anti-VEGF therapies which are administered as intravitreal injections.

There are currently two approved anti-VEGF therapies on the market for the treatment of both DME and ME-RVO, Roche/Novartis' Lucentis and Regeneron/Bayer's Eylea. Roche's oncology anti-VEGF is also used off-label in many markets.

Although anti-VEGF therapies represent an effective treatment for ME, many patients do not show an adequate response to such therapy. In the case of these patients, they are often moved onto second-line treatment with corticosteroids.

Over the next ten years, GlobalData forecasts four novel therapies to enter the ME market: CLS-TA, Abicipar pegol, Luminate and Optina.

GlobalData estimates that drug sales for ME in 2016 were approximately $3.7 billion across the seven major markets covered in this report. Over the 10-year forecast period, the market is expected to grow to $7.0 billion at a CAGR of 6.7%.

This growth will be driven by increased uptake of market leading therapy, Eylea, increased prevalence of diabetes and improved diagnosis and treatment rates. The launch of pipeline therapies will also be a driver of growth, with Allegro’s Luminate and Allergan’s Abicipar pegol forecast to be the highest selling pipeline agents in 2026.
