Wet AMD accounts for larger share in the market owing to rising prevalence of this compared to dry AMD among the geriatric population. This segment also has a growth rate of 7% and is growing faster than the dry AMD segment.
Drug – Segment Analysis
Wet AMD has drugs for its treatment, whereas dry AMD has no available treatment. The drugs used for wet AMD include anti-Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor drugs (anti-VEGF). Commonly used drugs are Lucentis (ranibizumab) and Eylea (aflibercept) that are FDA-approved for the treatment of AMD. Off label drug Avastin (bevacizumab) is also popularly used. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is also being used as a treatment for wet AMD and it slows the damage to vision.
Route of Administration – Segment Analysis

Also, most anti-VEGF injections are administered using intravitreal or intraocular injections.
Geography – Segment Analysis
In 2018, North America held 43.5% of the global Age Related Macular Degeneration market share. This is owing to the increasing prevalence of AMD as well as the rising number of drug approvals in the country. According to the United States Census Bureau, the older population is estimated to grow significantly in the coming years. As a result, the prevalence of age related macular degeneration is also growing. This will lead to the growth of the market as this region’s population will have an increased demand for these treatments.

Drivers – Age Related Macular Degeneration Market
Growing geriatric population and prevalence of eye disorders among them
As per World Bank statistics, 8.873% of the global population belong to age category 65 years and above, in 2018. AMD is found to affect patients of the age 60 and above. Thus with rising aging population, the prevalence of AMD will also increase and will contribute to the market growth.
