According to a 2014 report by rating agency Crisil Ltd, market for eye care in India is estimated to be worth Rs12,000 crore as of 2013-14, and poised to rise to Rs23,600 crore in the next five years. Reflecting the increased interest of private equity investors in the Indian healthcare sector, several eye cares chains have received private equity funding in the recent past. Other major deals in the eye care space in India include Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte. Ltd’s $100 million investment in Vasan Healthcare, Matrix Partners’ Rs50 crore investment in New Delhi Centre For Sight in 2010 and Eye-Q Super Specialty Eye Hospitals’ Rs60 crore fundraising from the World Bank arm International Finance Corporation, Helion Venture Partners and Nexus Venture Partners in 2015. An ageing and increasingly diabetic population, greater preference for paid eye care, shorter procedures and use of better technology in most treatments will aid a steady rise in people seeking eye care treatments
