Dry Eye Syndrome: Epidemiology Forecast to 2026
Dry eye syndrome (DES), also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), is a multi-factorial disease of the eye characterized by dryness, decreased tear production, or increased tear film evaporation. Patients with DES experience symptoms of discomfort, such as visual disturbance and tear film instability. Middle-aged and elderly people are most commonly affected because of the high prevalence of contact lens usage, systemic drug effects, autoimmune diseases, and refractive surgeries.
The epidemiology forecast for DES is supported by historical data obtained from peer-reviewed articles and population-based studies. The forecast methodology was kept consistent across the 8MM to allow for a meaningful comparison of the forecast prevalent cases of DES across these markets. These sources used questionnaires to assess DES symptoms, along with various diagnostic tests like aqueous tear flow, ocular surface damage, and measurements of tear film instability, for the 8MM in this analysis.
In the 8MM the total prevalent cases of DES are expected to increase from 267,680,785 cases in 2016 to 286,308,974 cases in 2026, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 0.70%. In 2026, China will have the highest number of total prevalent cases of DES in the 8MM with 205,637,090 total prevalent cases, whereas Spain will have the fewest number of total prevalent cases with 3,488,142 total prevalent cases in 2026. In the 8MM, the diagnosed prevalent cases are expected to increase from 100,585,137 cases in 2016 to 108,896,818 cases in 2026, at an AGR of 0.83%. In 2026, China will have the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of DES in the 8MM, with 64,251,395 diagnosed prevalent cases, whereas Spain will have the fewest number of diagnosed prevalent cases with 1,807,984 cases.
- The Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) Epidemiology Forecast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of DES in the eight major markets (8MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, and China).
- This report also includes a 10-year epidemiology forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases and total prevalent cases (both diagnosed and undiagnosed) of DES. The total prevalent cases and diagnosed prevalent cases of DES are segmented by sex, severity (mild, moderate, and severe), and age in 10-year increments (starting at ages 20-29 years and ending at ages 80 years and older).
- The Dry Eye Syndrome epidemiology forecast report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
- The Epidemiology Forecast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent, and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 8MM.
