Global Thyroid Eye Disease Market Forecast and Trends

The global Thyroid Eye Disease market has reached USD 182 Million in 2019 and estimated to reach USD 318 Million in 2026 and anticipated to grow by CAGR of 8.53% during the forecast period 2020- 2026. The global market for thyroid eye disease has grown significantly due to various factors consisting of rising thyroid disorder prevalence, which is the explanation for a higher pool of patients suffering from thyroid eye disease or Graves ' disease. Technological advancement in the market for thyroid eye disease has led to developments and the launch of various treatments such as radioactive iodine and thionamides that contribute to the segment's emerging growth.

The availability of generic pharmaceutical products and favorable reimbursement policies also drive market growth. The major drivers of the demand for thyroid eye disease are increased numbers of patients with thyroid disorders, favorable reimbursement rates for treatment, and increased awareness of the complications associated with thyroid disorders. Increasing iodine deficiency and screening for thyroid tumors is one of the leading factors driving global market growth over the 2020-2026 forecast period.

Global Thyroid Eye Disease Market: Overview

Thyroid eye disease, commonly referred to as Graves ' disease, is a condition of the immune system that results in hyperthyroidism. It is a problem that causes the overproduction of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. Thyroid eye disease is a type of inflammation of the muscles of the skin, eyelids, tear glands, and fatty tissues behind the eyes. This may cause the eyes and eyelids to turn red, swollen and painful, and may move the eyes forward.

In some cases, the muscles that drive the eyes become swollen and stiff so that they no longer move in line with each other; this can cause double vision. Rarely thyroid eye disease can cause decreased vision in the back of the eye due to pressure on the nerve or ulcers developing on the front of the eyes if the eyelids can not close completely. Thyroid eye disease is an autoimmune condition, also known as Graves ' Orbitopathy or Ophthalmopathy. This occurs when the immune system of the body attacks the tissue around the eye and causes inflammation in the muscles around and behind the eye. The same autoimmune disorder that causes thyroid eye disease also affects the thyroid gland in most cases, leading to Graves ' disease. The illness of Graves most commonly causes overactivity of the thyroid (hyperthyroidism), but may also rarely cause under activity of the thyroid (hypothyroidism). Thyroid eye disease can occur in people with overactive, underactive, or normal functioning thyroid.

Growth Drivers

Increasing awareness coupled with deteriorating lifestyle

Growing awareness around the globe, declining lifestyle due to alcohol and smoking use, and increasing thyroid tumors create the opportunity for the future and will further fuel market growth. Increasing iodine deficiency and screening of thyroid tumors also drive as key factors for the market growth of the thyroid eye disease market with a significant growth rate.

Technological Advancement

Substantial technological improvements have been made in the system and in the development of new technologies that have enabled ultrasound to become more widely adopted globally for soft tissue diagnosis. Technological equipment development involves a decrease in machine size, less heat generation, and more energy efficiency. All these changes in the hardware, together with significant improvements in image quality, help to diagnose thyroid eye disease effectively.


High Cost & low availability of skilled professional

Various factors are acting as the barriers for this market, which includes lack of experienced professional’s availability in developing economies and high costs associated with thyroid eye disease medication and treatment are a key factor that can hinder the rate of growth in the global thyroid eye disease market.

Global Thyroid Eye Disease Market: Diagnosis

The market can be bifurcated as an ultrasonic, MRI test, Radioactive Iodine Uptake, and blood sample depending on the diagnosis. The primary diagnostic technique adopted globally is among the ultrasound groups. The most common cause of proptosis in adults is thyroid-associated orbitopathy (or thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy) and is most frequently associated with thyroid eye disease. On imaging, the extraocular muscle bellies are characterized by bilateral and symmetrical enlargement.

Global Thyroid Eye Disease Market: Treatment

The market is diversified based on diagnosis as anti-thyroid medications, radioactive iodine therapy, and surgery. Anti-thyroid medicine is expected to hold the largest share among the treatment because of its property of being the least non-invasive drug. That slows the thyroid function and inhibits thyroid hormone production. Propylthiouracil (PTU) and methimazole (MMI) are inexpensive, without side effects, and are the most frequently used treatment option for this disease. Diagnosis for the thyroid-eye disease requires two stages. The first phase of diagnosis includes the treatment of severe eye disease, which lasts for 2-3 years. The determination of thyroid eye disorders in the active phase focuses on maintaining the sight and the integrity of the cornea, as well as combating double vision.
