According to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), approximately 28% of the global population were affected by myopia in 2010, and its prevalence is set to reach to almost 50% of the worldwide population by 2050. Moreover, rising popularity to enhance personal aesthetics as they are available in various colors and designs, increasing disposable incomes, and increasing preference of daily disposables as they are easy to use and maintenance free are further contributing to the market growth. Other factors driving the growth of the global contact lenses market include the increasing R&D on the therapeutic application and increasing consumer awareness on the comprehensive range of options is expected to propel the market growth further. For instance, In March 2019, Johnson & Johnson Vision unveiled positive Phase III data from two clinical studies of its antihistamine-releasing contact lens, showing that it was able to reduce feelings of itchy eyes after exposure to allergens.

However, the associated risks of contact lenses and the growing acceptance of refractive surgeries among users may hinder market progress.  

Market Segmentation

By Design, the Contact Lenses market is bifurcated into Spherical Contact Lenses, Toric Contact Lenses, and Multi-focal Contact Lenses. Spherical design holds the most significant market share owing to the higher adoption rate as they are majorly used for vision correction, especially in the cases of myopia and hyperopia. Multifocal is expected to be the fastest growing design segment as they offer a variety of benefits, such as the ability to incorporate multiple prescriptions and improved visual acuity. The ever-increasing geriatric population is expected to propel this market as this design type are used mainly for treating age-related ophthalmic disorders, such as presbyopia.

By Application, the Contact Lenses market is segmented into therapeutic, cosmetic, and corrective. Corrective contact lenses hold the most significant market share owing to the rising number of eye disorders such as myopia and increasing adoption of contacts as a corrective treatment. According to the Northern Ireland Childhood Errors of Refraction (NICER) study, nearly one in five teenagers in the UK are myopic. Therapeutic contact lenses hold the second largest market share owing to the increasing product launches, R&D, and broadening of the therapeutic uses by contact lenses for the treatment of eye ailments. For instance, researchers at the University of New Hampshire have created a hydrogel that could be made into a contact lens to more effectively treat corneal melting, a condition that is a significant cause for blindness worldwide.

The Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest growing market share owing to the rising prevalence of eye disorders and increasing product demand due to the ever-increasing user base in younger consumers and disposable income levels. According to published studies by the WHO, the prevalence of myopia is highest in East Asia, where China, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Singapore have a prevalence of approximately 50%. Moreover, the growing popularity of cosmetic lenses is expected to propel the regional market growth during the forecast period further.
