The recent research studies suggest that in cases of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, high levels of the vascular endothelial growth factor being detected in fibrovascular tissues of eyes of diabetic patients have prompted the use of anti-VEGF as the most effective and efficient management method. According to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, by the year 2040, about 224 million (35%) people worldwide will have some form of diabetic retinopathy, in addition, 70 million (11%) people will have vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy.

Anti-VEGF agents segment holds a significant market share in the proliferative diabetic retinopathy market and is anticipated to show a similar trend over the forecast period due to effective treatment which resulted in improvements in visual acuity of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy when comparative to improvements observed in treatment by using corticosteroids.

Rising prevalence of diabetic retinopathy and the availability of advanced technology are the key driving factors in the Anti-VEGF agent's segment.
