Global Contact Lenses Market Research, 2032

The global contact lenses market size was valued at $15.5 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $24.2 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2032. A contact lens is a thin, curved lens that is placed directly on the surface of the eye. It is usually made of a polymeric material and is typically prescribed by an ophthalmologist or optometrist to correct vision, or to help manage certain conditions of the cornea. Contact lenses are most commonly used to correct refractive errors, such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. They can also be used to correct presbyopia, a condition that affects people over 40 and causes them to become increasingly farsighted, and to treat certain eye conditions, such as keratoconus, an eye disorder that causes the cornea to become increasingly curved. Contact lenses are typically prescribed based on the patient's visual needs and lifestyle. They are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and material, including soft lenses, rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses, and hybrid lenses.

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global contact lenses market size is majorly driven by rise in prevalence of eye disorder and increase in number of minimal invasive aesthetic procedures. Contact lenses can be used to treat a variety of vision impairments. For nearsightedness and farsightedness, contact lenses can be used to correct refractive errors, allowing the wearer to see clearly. For astigmatism, toric lenses may be prescribed to correct the shape of the cornea. For color blindness, there are special enhancer lenses that can help the wearer distinguish between colors. For age-related macular degeneration, special low-vision lenses can be used to magnify and enhance the wearer’s central vision.

For instance, in October 2022, according to World health Organization (WHO), it was also reported that around 8 million geriatric population over the globe is suffering from age-related macular degeneration. Thus, rise in geriatric population is attributed to drive the growth of the market.

Increase in number of development strategies such as product launch, and acquisition, by different contact lenses industry is anticipated to propel the market growth. For instance, in April 2021, Cooper Vision, global manufacturer of soft contact lenses, announced the acquisition of No7 Contact Lenses, which designs and manufactures specialty contact lenses distributed primarily in the UK. Moreover, in June 2020, Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health business of Bausch Health Companies Inc., announced that BAUSCH + LOMB ULTRA monthly silicone hydrogel contact lenses have received approval from the National Medical Products Administration in China. Thus, increase in product approval of contact lenses propel the growth of the market.

Rise in adoption of contact lenses for vision correction and cosmetic purpose and availability of different contact lenses such as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) lenses, gas-permeable lenses, and hybrid lenses are attributed to boost the growth of market.

On the other hand, side effect caused due to the use of contact lens such as inflammation, corneal edema, superficial keratitis, swollen eyes, excessive mucus production, epithelial microcysts, infiltrates, giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), and corneal vascularization hinder the growth of the market.  According to Harvest Health Publishing, in August 2021,  it was reported that, keratitis occurs in 2 to 20 per 10,000 contact lens wearers in U.S. The increase in number of adoptions of key strategies by major manufacturer, rise in product launch provides an opportunity for the contact lenses market growth.

The COVID-19 outbreak had a negative impact on the growth of the global contact lens market. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic's effects, major market companies reported a drop in their revenues from the selling of lenses. For instance, Alcon, pharmaceutical and medical device company specialized in eye care products, reported decrease in revenue of 7% in contact lenses segment from 2019 to 2020. Moreover, the general public's preference for glasses over the contact lenses during the lockdown was blamed for the drop in revenues.

According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2020, it was reported that around cosmetic procedures decreased by 15% from 2019 to 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. In addition, decrease in number of visits for aesthetic appearance to dermatology clinics, during pandemic hampered the growth of the market. Furthermore, facial rejuvenation procedures, such as contact lenses, are non-emergency aesthetic procedures that were postponed during the pandemic, which significantly hampered revenue of aesthetic companies. In addition, sudden sharp cut in monthly income of population had a negative impact on the market. Many contact lens wearers stopped wearing them to minimize the risk of the virus spreading from person to person. With the increased risk of infection associated with contact lens wear, many optometrists recommended that contact lens wearers switch to daily disposables or even switch to glasses during the pandemic.
