The dry eye condition is expected to be seen in the majority of the population across the world in the coming years. Many research studies have proven dry eye as a lifestyle disease.

Additionally, the stressful life among people across the world is likely to increase the incidences of dry eyes.

Various companies are entering the market, which is contributing greatly to enhancing market growth. Various companies have designed various innovative formulae to offer better eye drops for dry eye conditions. The cycle of product development is continuous and is likely to act as a vital growth factor during the forecast period.

Similarly, Novaliq has two products in pipelines, such as NOVO3 (100% perfluorohexyloctane) and CyclASol (ophthalmic solution of 0.1% cyclosporine A in EyeSol).

However, India is still struggling to fight against COVID-19. Therefore, there has been a tremendous economic drop in the country, which is trying to recover. The fast recovery from the situation was seen due to the shift of focus of various companies operating in the ophthalmic division. Companies have shifted their focus towards supplying relief to these countries as corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity. Also, governments are seeking help from the private sector to contribute during the challenging situation. Therefore, market players have strengthened their efforts to supply personal protective equipment.
