Rise in ageing population globally has boosted the need of fundus cameras. This is mainly due to rise in chronic disorders such as diabetes, hypertension leading to retinal disorders. According to WHO (World Health Organization) it is estimated that the global population will reach around 7.9 billion by 2020 out of which 76 million people are anticipated to have vision loss. Of the estimated 76 million people, 15% are expected to suffer from diabetic retinopathy, while 10% were attributed to acute macular degeneration (AMD) and other disorders. 5-6% has been predicted for vision loss in children and premature births. Retinopathies of prematurity (ROP) are also a major concern for pediatrics, since premature births led to retinal hemorrhages in new born. To satisfy the demand for early diagnosis and detection of these retinal disorders, healthy growth of fundus cameras is foreseen in the coming years of forecast.
