Contact Lenses Market 2018 - Global Forecast to 2023

(MENAFN - GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) itemprop="articleBody">

Dublin, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Contact Lenses Market by Model, Design, Material, Application, Distribution Channel - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The global contact lenses market is projected to reach USD 9.2 billion by 2023 from an estimated USD 7.2 billion in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2018 to 2023.

Growing prevalence of myopia, growing geriatric population, and increasing preference for contact lenses over prescription eyeglasses are the major factors driving the growth of this market. On the other hand, shortage of trained ophthalmologists and regulatory barriers in the contact lenses market are some of the factors restraining market growth.

The daily wear contact lenses segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

On the basis of model, the contact lenses market is segmented into daily wear, extended wear, and traditional contact lenses. The daily wear contact lenses segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth of this segment can primarily be attributed to the advantages offered by daily wear contact lenses, such as easy wearability, no requirement of lens cleaning (in the case of disposable daily wear contact lenses), and no requirement of overnight wear. Also, these contact lenses do not have the issue of day-to-day accumulation of lens deposits and are more affordable as compared to other types of contact lenses.

Multifocal contact lenses are expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2018 to 2023.

Based on design, the contact lenses market is segmented into spherical, toric, multifocal, cosmetic, and monovision contact lenses. The multifocal contact lenses segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Multifocal contact lenses are used to treat myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism (in some cases). These lenses are soft as they avoid the risk of infection and are designed to adjust at various site zones so as to avoid the use of extra eyeglasses along with multiple contact lenses.

Gas-permeable contact lenses are expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

Based on material, the contact lenses market is segmented into silicone hydrogel, hydrogel, gas-permeable, hybrid, and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) contact lenses. Gas-permeable contact lenses are expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. These lenses have essentially replaced non-porous PMMA contact lenses. These are hard, PMMA-like lenses, but are porous in nature. As a result, they allow oxygen to pass through them to the cornea.

Orthokeratology contact lenses to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on application, the contact lenses market is segmented into conventional, orthokeratology, and decorative (Plano) contact lenses. The orthokeratology contact lenses segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing prevalence of myopia and willingness to adopt advance procedures to treat myopia are major drivers for this segment. Orthokeratology or Ortho-K is a lens fitting procedure that uses specially designed rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses to change the curvature of the cornea for improving the eye's ability to focus on objects temporarily. This procedure is primarily used for the correction of myopia. These lenses are commonly prescribed to be worn while sleeping for at least eight hours each night.

India and China are projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

Emerging countries such as China and India is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the rapidly developing healthcare industry in China and India, growth in aging population, rising prevalence of myopia, rising per capita income, increasing investments in these countries by key market players, the expansion of private-sector hospitals & clinics to rural areas, the availability of low-cost labor for manufacturing, presence of a favorable regulatory environment, and emergence of local market players with the offerings of low priced contact lenses.

The contact lenses market is dominated by top four players, namely, Johnson & Johnson (US), Alcon, Inc. (US), CooperVision, Inc. (US), and Bausch + Lomb (US). Some of the other key players in this market are Carl Zeiss Meditech AG (Germany), HOYA Corporation (Japan), Essilor Group (France), SEED Co., Ltd. (Japan), Menicon Co., Ltd. (Japan), and BenQ Materials Corporation (Taiwan).
