The rising prevalence of eye diseases like refractive errors, cataracts, where contact lens help people to correct vision is supporting the market growth. Moreover, there are risks associated with the contacts like discomfort, excess tearing or other discharge, unusual sensitivity to light, itching, burning, or gritty feel, and unusual redness are likely to limit the growth of an extent over the forecast period.

The contact lenses market is segmented on the basis of wear type, design, material, application, distribution channel, and geography. Based on wear type, the market is divided into daily disposable lenses, disposable lenses, frequent replacement lenses, and conventional lenses. Based on the design, the market is bifurcated into spherical, toric, multifocal, other; material: silicone hydrogel, hydrogel, gas permeable, hybrid, and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). Additionally, contact lenses have applications for corrective, therapeutic, cosmetic, prosthetic, and lifestyle-oriented. Moreover, the distribution channel includes retail stores, hospitals & clinics, and e-commerce.

In 2019, North America held the major share (%) in terms of revenue of the global contact lenses market. The major economy of the region US accounted for the maximum revenue share. According to the 2015 estimates of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in six adults in the United States wear contact lenses, and one-third of them report at least one health care visit for a red or painful eye while wearing lenses.

Some of the key observations regarding the contact lenses industry include:

  • Alcon has launched PRECISION1 for astigmatism contact lenses in 2021. It’s a daily disposable, silicone hydrogel (SiHy) contact lens designed for astigmatic patients. Alcon estimates that toric lenses, which correct for astigmatism, represent 23% of the $9 billion global contact lens market. PRECISION1 is designed with the SMART SURFACE technology, which has supported the brand to become the fastest-growing daily disposable contact lens brand in the U.S.
  • The engineers from the University of Surrey, together with their partners from Harvard University (US), University of Science and Technology (China), National Physical Laboratory (UK), George Washington University, and Zhejiang University Ningbo Research Institute, have developed a breakthrough sensor system and manufacturing process to produce ultra-thin smart contact lenses. They have also stated that the system can be directly incorporated onto soft contact lenses using an easy assembly method. Additionally, the final design will also provide comfort and biocompatibility, robustness, transparency, and detection sensitivity, which outperforms other smart lenses.
