Type-Based Insights

Based on type, the fundus cameras market is segmented as mydriatic fundus camera, non-mydriatic fundus camera, hybrid fundus camera, and ROP fundus camera. The non-mydriatic fundus camera segment held the largest market share in 2022. The mydriatic fundus camera accounted a significant CAGR for the fundus cameras market. A non-mydriatic fundus camera focuses on the high-definition image capturing of the optic disc, retina, and lens that can be achieved through a low-power microscope of the instrument without increasing the pupil size. Compared to the mydriatic fundus camera, one of the most significant advantages of a non-mydriatic fundus camera is its revolutionary upgrade offering bigger and clearer image capturing without pupil dilation. Also, a non-mydriatic fundus camera is patient-friendly as well as eliminates a 30-minute waiting time for pupil dilation and eye adjustment after blinking, which assists ophthalmologists in improving the efficiency of diagnosis.

CX-1 Hybrid Digital Mydriatic/Non-Mydriatic (MYD/NM) Retinal Camera is Canon’s first hybrid camera and a non-mydriatic camera to use Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) photography. The CX-1 provides five photograph modes—color, red-free, cobalt, fluorescein angiography (FA), and fundus autofluorescence (FAF).

Likewise, a standalone mydriatic fundus camera prototype was successfully developed with a prototype camera capable of operating in a point-and-shoot manner. Also, the mydriatic fundus camera provides automated image focusing and exposure with the image quality of fundus photos comparable to the existing commercial cameras. For example, the adoption of a mydriatic fundus camera is huge for screening patients suffering from diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration easily identified from fundus images.

In October 2020, Volk Optical announced the launch of "The Volk VistaView," a new portable mydriatic retinal camera for fundus imaging. The newly launched product provides high-resolution, all-glass, double aspheric optics through intuitive digital platforms that capture sharp, wide-field images and manages patient data on the device.

Portability-Based Insights

Based on portability, the global fundus cameras market is bifurcated into handheld and tabletop. The tabletop segment accounted for a larger market share in 2022. The handheld segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during 2020–2030. Fundus photography facilitates the detection and screening of various causes of treatable and preventable blindness, notably diabetic retinopathy (DR), age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinopathy of prematurity. A handheld camera is a smaller, portable imaging device. This tool is battery-operated and does not need a stand or table to operate. Handheld cameras tend to be more affordable than tabletop cameras. The portability and low cost contribute to the high accessibility of retinal imaging devices. Handheld cameras are used in homes, mobile clinics, and health fairs.

Modern handheld fundus cameras combined with autonomous AI systems are well-suited in DR screening without mydriasis because of the high sensitivity of detection and image quality. However, the specificity of these cameras needs to be improved with better modelling of the data. Volk iNview fundus camera by Mentor, Ohio, US, can be connected with an iPhone 6s/6/5s or iPod Touch (Gen 6) through an app. The Volk Pictor Plus is a non-mydriatic fundus camera with posterior (retinal) and anterior imaging modules; the camera uses a proprietary lens, and the application can be downloaded to take fundus images. Handheld cameras are now emerging as a new low-cost tool for DR screening, which can be conveniently used by patients who may not have access to ophthalmological care.

Application-Based Insights

In terms of application, the fundus cameras market is segmented as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, retinal vascular disorders, and others. The diabetic retinopathy segment accounted for the largest fundus cameras market share in 2022. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is considered to be a disease of epidemic proportions. According to the Diabetes Research Institute, 37.3 million people in the US are currently suffering from diabetes.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is among the most significant long-term complications of diabetes mellitus and a leading cause of blindness in individuals of aged 20–74 years. As of 2020, the number of adults in the US suffering from diabetic retinopathy was ~8 million; it is expected to reach 16 million by 2050. It can be proliferative (growing) or nonproliferative (not growing), referring to the development of abnormal blood vessels in the retina. Nonproliferative retinopathy is much more common and may not require treatment. When the regular blood vessels cut off in proliferative retinopathy, aberrant blood vessels begin to form. The proliferative form of retinopathy may cause visual loss. The course of retinopathy from nonproliferative to proliferative phases should be monitored with routine eye exams. Fundus photography is crucial in managing and documenting diabetic eye diseases. Traditionally, fundus photography has been performed using film, but recently, digital fundus photography has gained significant traction. Digital images enable easy and immediate review of images, straightforward image magnification, and ability to easily validate the images.

End User-Based Insights

By end user, the market is segmented as hospitals, ophthalmology centers, and others. The ophthalmology centers segment held the largest market share in 2022 and will register the highest CAGR during 2020–2030.
