Growing older population and stem cell therapy are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.                         

The technologies are emerging based on stem cell therapy that can help in treating a dry eye condition. The aim is to prevent disease development, regeneration, and maintaining corneal transparency. Whereas most of the recent advances do not respond to conventional methods. Therefore, researchers prefer autologous or allogeneic serum drops, platelet-derived plasma products, and umbilical cord blood serum to study them as a treatment method. Additionally, the researchers are focusing on using cytokines and different cell sources such as mesenchymal stem cells more preferably to cure dry eye conditions. During the studies, it was found that mesenchymal cells assist in improving tear volume, tear-film stability, epithelial recovery, and the number of goblet cells. The cells help in decreasing the number of meibomian gland injuries in the conjunctiva, which is expected to be the most promising advancement for the dry eye condition treatment. The other stem cell therapy-based treatment is by using lubricin. Lubricin is a protein present in the tear film that allows lubrication in between eye surface and eyelid. The researchers are aiming to introduce proper treatment that can cure dry eye conditions completely. Thus, advancements in the healthcare industry that has allowed integration of biotechnology and pharmaceutical are likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
