Contact Lenses Market Latest Research, Analysis, Key Value Demand and Forecast 2027


The global contact lens market is expected to reach USD 11 billion at a CAGR of 5.70% by the end of the forecast period 2018-2023, projects Market Research Future (MRFR) in a detailed study. The Global contact lens market was valued at $7.9 billion in 2017.

Rising incidence rate of visual problems and eye disorders is one of the major reasons driving the growth of the global contact lens market. Visual inaccuracies such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia have become very common, and in all these vision problems glasses are generally recommended to overcome them. However, reusable contact lenses have become the choice of most consumers with sight problems due to self-consciousness about appearance. This has increased the adoption of contact lenses.

Contact lenses are flexible, move with the eyeball, and allow for a natural field of vision and reduced distortion. They are ideal for athletes and people involved in sports activities. Various advances in bausch and lomb color contact lenses have resulted in the development of improved versions of contact lenses such as multifocal lenses, toric lenses, and others. Improvements in design and functionality have made them more viable, which has increased the adoption of contact lenses.

On the other hand, market growth might be hindered by complications associated with contact lenses and consumer inclination for eyeglasses. Additionally, the emergence of LASIK, a corrective procedure for eye disorders, has gained immense popularity among consumers, which is likely to hamper the growth of the global contact lens market over the forecast period. Meanwhile, the growing demand for cosmetic contact lenses is expected to provide growth opportunities for the global contact lens market.
