The global Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Market exhibited significant strength in 2021 and is anticipated to demonstrate a rapid Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in terms of revenue throughout the projected period. The primary driver behind the revenue growth in the Meibomian gland dysfunction market is the increasing prevalence of this condition on a global scale.

Meibomian gland dysfunction can manifest as a congenital or acquired condition, resulting in a modification of the composition of the tear film. This, in turn, leads to ocular surface diseases, discomfort in the eyes and eyelids, and the onset of dry eye symptoms. The Meibomian glands play a crucial role in producing meibum, an oil that, in conjunction with water and mucus, maintains the eye's hydration and moisture levels. The fundamental function of meibum oil is to prevent the evaporation or drying of the eye by forming a thin water layer on the surface.

Various factors can contribute to the dysfunction of Meibomian glands, including elevated levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, allergic conjunctivitis, inflammation or damage to the eyelid or cornea, bacterial infections, and autoimmune diseases such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, Meibomian gland dysfunction can result from adverse reactions to certain medications, such as estrogen replacement therapy, anti-androgen drugs, and Retinoids. Common symptoms associated with Meibomian gland dysfunction include a sensation of burning, itching, or irritation due to inflammation.
