Contact Lens Market Segment Analysis- By Material
Contact Lens Market is based on materials segmented into Silicone Hydrogel, Gas Permeable, Hybrid, and PMMA. Hybrid accounted for the largest revenue market share in 2021 owing to its vast usage by people with astigmatism and keratoconus is anticipated to favorably impact the segment growth. The mixture of gas-permeable and silicone hydrogel is a hybrid lens. It consists of a central RGP zone surrounded by a soft peripheral skirt made of hydrogel material that is soft or silicone. This offers the ease of wearing a soft lens and the visual clarity of an RGP lens. Furthermore, the market is predicted to develop owing to an increase in the number of visual mistakes. According to the National Eye Institute, approximately 1.3 million Americans are blind and 2.9 million have impaired vision in 2019, with an expected 2.2 million Americans blind and around 5 million Americans having low vision by 2030. As a result, as the number of eye problems rises, so will the need for contact lenses, propelling the segment forward.
The silicone Hydrogel segment is anticipated
to grow with the fastest CAGR of 6.5% in the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to
the benefits associated with them, such as the ease of production as well as
high flexibility and greater comfort. They are mainly used for treating
age-related ophthalmic disorders such as presbyopia. It provides a range of
advantages for consumers who need to integrate multiple medications into a
single lens, such as enhanced visual acuity.
Contact Lens Market Segment Analysis- By Usage
Contact Lens Market based on Usage can be further segmented into Daily Wear, Traditional Wear, and Extended Wear. Daily Wear accounted for the largest revenue market share in 2021. As a new range of lenses offers greater convenience for the user, the preference for regular disposable lenses has been growing. Hence, the production of regular disposable lenses has been initiated by many players. Such lenses are considered by most users as the healthiest contact lens alternative. It is made of plastic material, which is very soft and flexible and is commonly used in an active lifestyle. The use of a daily disposable lens is favored by individuals who are regularly involved in sporting events and others. In August 2019, for instance, Alcon launched the Precision1 regular disposable contact lens using SmartSurface technology. This latest product launch has allowed the company to provide its clients with long-lasting convenience and ease of managing experience. Eye care practitioners also recommend regular disposable lenses to prevent complications associated with longer lens replacements driving the segment growth.
The Traditional Wear segment is anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to the increased focus of the vendors on offering greater rebates. It can be used for a long time and are more economical for full-time wearers, thus enhancing the segment demand.
Contact Lens Market Segmentation
Analysis- By Geography
The Vision disorders Market based on Geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Rest of the World. North America held a dominant market share of 31% in the year 2021. This is majorly attributed to the rise in awareness of eye disorders. The largest pharmaceutical firms concentrate on raising awareness of vision-related illnesses. The adoption of contact lenses has been improved by growing product developments. Alcon Vision LLC, for instance, announced the launch of the AcrySof IQ PanOptix Trifocal IOL in the United States in March 2019. It is a trifocal lens used by patients undergoing cataract surgery, thereby, driving the regional growth.
Asia-Pacific is predicted to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period 2022- 2027 owing to the increasing purchasing power of consumers in this region. Moreover, rising eye disease cases, a growing geriatric population, and technological developments in contact lens technology including silicone hydrogel and gas permeable material are fueling the regional growth. Local enterprises are embarking on strategic initiatives to develop and sell novel patient treatment solutions. As a result, market growth is expected to go up. In February 2020, Bridge Biotherapeutics, Inc. purchased an early-stage medication candidate from Konkuk University (KU) for the treatment of a back-eye condition. The treatment candidate is a protein inhibitor that has yet to be discovered.
Contact Lens Market Drivers
Increasing Geriatric Population is Fuelling Market Growth:
Increasing geriatric population base is highly susceptible to developing eye-related diseases that drive the product demand. In 2019, there were 703 million individuals worldwide aged 65 years or older. By 2050, the number of older individuals is anticipated to double to 1.5 billion. Globally, the proportion of the population aged 65 years or over rose from 6% in 1990 to 9.1% in 2021. Early detection and treatment of DR lessen the risk of vision loss; nevertheless, up to 50% of patients do not have their eyes tested or are detected too late for effective therapy. It is the primary cause of blindness among working-age adults in the United States, ages 20 to 74. Retinopathy and vision-threatening retinopathy impact an estimated 4.1 million and 899,000 Americans, respectively, thereby driving the market growth. The growing elderly population is highly prone to numerous health disorders like eye disorders and weak eyesight that lead to impairment, showing a significant impact on the demand for the Contact Lens Market.
Growing Prevalence of Myopia is Boosting Product Demand:
In order to fix vision disorders
such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia, contact lenses are used.
Myopia is still the most widespread worldwide, although its prevalence has
grown across the globe. The prevalence of myopia is highest in eastern Asian
countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, according to the
WHO. Myopia and high myopia are both predicted to impact ~4,949 million and
~925 million individuals globally by 2050, respectively. The growing prevalence
of myopia and the increasing expenditure on ophthalmic goods, such as contact
lenses, are anticipated to drive the growth of contact lenses as a corrective
measure of refractive errors.
Contact Lens Market Challenges
Lack of Ophthalmologists is restraining the market expansion:
While the demand for ophthalmologists,
proportional to the growth of the global population, has increased
dramatically, their number has not. This is especially evident in developing
countries. For instance, according to NCBI, India has one ophthalmologist for every 90,000
individuals, while the U.S. has a 1:15,800 ratio. The total number of
ophthalmologists per million people varies according to the degree of economic
growth, from 9 per million on an average in low-income countries to 79 per
million on average in high-income countries. The approximate global mean for
the density of ophthalmologists was 31.7 per million people. According to World
Bank, only 13 countries have over 100 ophthalmologists per million people.
Furthermore, middle-income countries are predicted to hamper the growth of the market owing to their lower-income profile and escalating cost of the Contact Lens.
