Market Definition

As common as difficulty in vision has become among people across different countries, the use of spectacles is extensive. However, for those who want a clear vision without using spectacles, contact lenses are what they prefer as a go-to product. These lenses are thin, transparent discs worn in the eye over the cornea.

Technology has brought these lenses to grip the cornea and place perfectly in the eye. Contact lenses nowadays are being manufactured using high-tech plastics or polycarbonates that are lightweight & protect the human eye from Ultraviolet (UV) radiation & other harmful substances. 

While the primary purpose of contact lenses is medical, people across different regions worldwide are also showing keen interest in wearing them for fashion or eye protection, which, in turn, is rapidly boosting their sales globally.

Market Insights

The Global Contact Lens Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 5.5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. The growth of the market is likely to be driven primarily by the growing number of people suffering from refractive errors, including astigmatism, farsightedness, near-sightedness, & presbyopia, coupled with the increasing consumer awareness about the medical benefits of contact lenses offering a wider view field with less distortion & viewer obstructions than glasses.

As a result, the leading manufacturers of contact lenses are increasing their production & distribution capabilities while introducing new varieties to cater to the burgeoning consumer requirements.

  • In March 2021, Johnson & Johnson introduced the ‘Acuvue Oasys Multifocal with Pupil Optimized Design’ lens to optimize the pupil condition to suit bi-focal needs and offer higher effectiveness in vision correction.

Furthermore, with the mounting inclination of the leading manufacturers & new entrants toward digital platforms in order to expand their scalability across different geographies, coupled with the growing penetration of the internet & smartphones with easy payment options, online sales of these lenses are also escalating rapidly and, in turn, significantly contributing to the expansion of the Global Contact Lens Market.

Market Segmentation

By Material:

  • Soft Contact Lenses
    • Silicone Hydrogel
    • Hydrogel
  • Hard Contact Lenses
    • Rigid Gas-Permeable Lenses (RGP)
    • Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA)
  • Hybrid Contact Lenses

Among all, soft contact lenses are anticipated to witness higher demand than others and significantly contribute to the growth of the Global Contact Lens Market during 2022-27. It owes to the growing consumer inclination toward higher comfort & quality of contact lenses with soft & flexible structures. Besides, since these lenses avoid hardness, rigidness, and permeability, their demand is accelerating more rapidly than other types. In addition, the growing awareness among people about the benefits of using soft contact lenses, like higher comfort & efficiency in adjusting & adapting the eye shape, is another crucial aspect promoting the consumer base for these lenses.

Moreover, since soft lenses are made of silicone-hydrogels, it necessitates more oxygen for the pupil. Hence, these lenses are gaining immense popularity & witnessing a burgeoning demand worldwide, especially among the younger population. Furthermore, the fact that soft lenses can be disposed of easily owing to their eco-friendly nature further projects their increasing sales and a notable expansion of the global market in the years ahead.
