Corneal Pachymetry, the technique of measuring corneal thickness, is a quick and painless test involving an ultrasound scan of the front and back corneal surfaces to obtain a corneal thickness reading. As the intra-ocular pressures measured during tonometry are dependent upon the thickness of the cornea, Pachymetry provides invaluable information in the management of suspect glaucoma patients. For example, a thicker cornea may mean less reason to worry about Glaucoma as patients’ thicker corneas may show a higher pressure reading than actually exists.
The market in corneal pachymetry is not highly concentrated, there are many manufacturers in the world, and high-end products mainly come from North America and Europe.
The companies, like OCULUS and Reichert are taking a leading share in this area.
North America and Europe are the largest consumers in corneal pachymetry and is expected to retain the higher growth rate during the next years due to strong growth in corneal pachymetry. China and Japan have witnessed a major chunk in corneal pachymetry in the Asia Pacific region. Actually, that is why manufacturers have several plants, usually close to aimed demand market.
All manufactures in the world are committed to the improvement of products. These two years, some of Chinese manufactures can almost catch up with the world's leading technology too. Most technologies are developed by the manufacturers instead of importing from other companies.
Many international manufacturers expand their business through medical factories in targeted markets. Also, many major players h ...
