Vision Correction Market Research, 2031

The global vision correction market size was valued at $20,302.8 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $41,252.7 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2031. Vision correction is a type of methodology that is used to improve visual acuity of the eyes through surgical procedures or use of medical devices. A wide range of medical devices and surgeries equipped with advance software are used according to the need and requirement of an individual for the treatment of refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (when light enters the eye incorrectly), presbyopia (farsightedness due to aging), and glaucoma. Some people need surgery under vision correction to cure eye diseases such as cataract, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. Though some eye conditions can be treated by use of contact lenses and surgery by choice.

Historical overview

The vision correction market size was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2021-2031. The vision correction market grew at a CAGR of around 7.4% during 2022-2031. Most of the growth during this period was derived from the North America owing to the rise in the number of vision correction industry who manufactures vision correction devices, rising disposable incomes, as well as well-established presence of domestic companies in the region.

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global vision correction market share is majorly driven by rise in the prevalence of eye disorder, increase in the number of geriatric population, and rise in the prevalence of diabetes. Increase in prevalence of eye disorders among the geriatric and youth population due to change in lifestyle, adoption of digital technology, and usage of screen for longer duration of time is one of the major factors for the growth of the market. For instance, according to the data published by National Library of Medicine in July 2022, around 285 million people have a visual impairment, of whom 19 million are children under the age of 14 years. As per the same source, myopia is the most common refractive problem worldwide. It is estimated that 22.9% of the world population is affected by myopia. In addition, myopia is projected to reach 49.8% by 2050.

Vision Correction Market

Furthermore, geriatric population is majorly susceptible to suffer from eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, dry eye, and refractive errors. Owing to aging, the nerves and the muscles surrounding the eyes become weak making it susceptible vision problems. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau data published in December 2021, more than 56 million adults ages 65 years of the nation’s population. As per the same source, it is estimated to reach up to 85.7 million by 2050. Moreover, according to article published in JAMA Ophthalmology, in May 2022, states that 6.6 million people aged 60 years and older are projected to have vision impairment or blindness in 2050, up from 3.3 million in 2020.

Thus, rise in prevalence of eye disorders increases the demand for vision correction. Thus, this factor is anticipated to drive the growth of vision correction market.

Increase in the adoption of contact lenses drives the vision correction market growth. Patients with refractive errors, cataract, glaucoma, strabismus, and amblyopia are keener to use vision correction techniques such as contact lenses and surgeries as they give more natural vision as compared to eyeglasses. Owing to rising participation of individuals in sports and physical activities the need for adopting contact lenses is also increasing as it helps to minimize the risk of injury. In addition, it also provides better compatibility with safety equipment, and enhance the performance of both individuals and athletes. Moreover, contact lenses are known to offer better peripheral vision, unobstructed field of view, and less likelihood of getting splattered.

On the other hand, high cost of treatment and unavoidable side effects of the procedures are some factors that are anticipated to restrain the growth of the vision correction market.

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a negative impact on the growth of the global vision correction market. The COVID-19 pandemic has stressed healthcare systems globally. A huge number of clinics and hospitals across the globe were restructured to increase the hospital capacity for the patient diagnosed with COVID-19. Most of the non-emergency and minor procedures were canceled or postponed during pandemic. In addition, surgeons are more vulnerable for contracting and transmitting the coronavirus. Subsequently, this led to cancellation of many non-essential surgical procedures across the globe. Thus, these factors are anticipated to hinder the growth of the market during the pandemic.
