As the downstream consumption usually follows with developed and rapid economic growth areas, such as BRICS, the developed areas’ company prefers investing to underdevelopment regions these years.

Tonometer is an instrument used for the determination of the intraocular pressure or the pressure of the fluid within the eye. Tonometer is equipped to measure the intraocular pressure by determining the resistance of the cornea to indentation. The normal intraocular pressure ranges from 12 to 22 mm Hg according to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, and the tonometer measures in units of "mmHg" which is the unit used to record eye pressure. Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged. The buildup of the pressure of the extra fluid inside the eye damages the optic nerve, and if this is left unattended, it may first cause peripheral vision loss and could lead to permanent loss of vision.

The key players are Topcon, Haag-Streit, Reichert, Keeler (Halma), Nidek, Icare (Revenio), Kowa, Tomey, Canon, Huvitz, Marco Ophthalmic, Rexxam, OCULUS, CSO, Ziemer, Diaton, 66Vision, Suowei, Suzhou Kangjie, MediWorks and so on.

The leading companies own the advantages on better performance, more abundant product’s types, better technical and impeccable after-sales service. Consequently, they take the majority of the market share of high-end market. Looking to the future years, the slow downward price trend in recent years will maintain. As competition intensifies, prices gap between different brands will go narrowing. Similarly, there will be fluctuation in gross margin.
