Assistive Technologies for Visually Impaired Market Growth

Vision is one of the basic five senses in human body which enables us to receive the details, color, and contrast to differentiate objects. However, the capacity of the eye to see diminishes naturally with age. This can be corrected by glasses, medications, or surgery. Changes in vision due to poor health, injury, or eye disease can sometimes lead to partial or complete blindness. Partial vision loss is termed as vision impairment or low vision.

Vision loss may occur at varying degrees such as central vision impairment leading to blind spots, difficulty in seeing fine details, and differentiate colors. Cornea impairment leads to blurred vision, peripheral vision impairment resulting in inability to perceive motion or see in low light. Assistive technologies are devices or equipment that maintain and improve functional capabilities of people with impaired vision. Assistive technology devices could be software, hardware, or standalone device. Different types of assistive technologies are available for visually impaired patients to address different inabilities. These are manufactured to support academic and learning aids, mobility aids, and others.

According to the Lighthouse National Survey on Vision Loss, in 2010, the U.S. had 8.3 million people aged 65 and above who had some type of visual impairment. This number is expected to increase rapidly from 2010 to 2030 to reach 14.8 million, 7.7 million of which will have a severe impairment. In 1995, the economic impact of visual disorders and disabilities was approximately US$ 38.4 Bn per year. Of this, eye diseases and disorders cost US$ 22.3 Bn in direct costs and US$ 16.1 Bn in indirect costs every year. Over 2 million people in the U.K. had some degree of visual impairment in 2015. According to RNIB statistics, 1 in 5 people aged 75 or more are living with vision loss and nearly 2/3 of those are women. The number of visually impaired people in the U.K. is set to double by 2050 as the population ages.

Government initiatives, funding programs, and technological advancements are the primary drivers of the Assistive Technologies For Visually Impaired Market. Increase in efforts by manufacturers for the development of highly advanced, technology-based devices is also fueling the growth of the market. Future development of innovative devices for assistance in travelling and computer and smart devices access is also likely to boost the growth of the market. Lack of appropriate technology and high price of devices are some of the restraints of the market.
