Industry Analysis

As per our report, the global contact lenses market size is expected to reach USD 20.2 billion by 2024 from USD 13.9 billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 7.68 % during the forecast period. North America is the largest market for contact lenses and predicted to continue its dominating trend during the years to come due to the vibrant health conditions and high-end healthcare facilities.

According to WHO, cataract is responsible for world blindness. Also, the U.S. FDA regulated cosmetic, and a prescription for contact lenses require increasing adoption of contact lenses for the correction of multiple vision defects, including refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, etc.  

To develop a smart contact lens, IMEC and SEED Co., a global R&D centre entered into a mutual relationship, in November 2018. This contact lens will also have different components, including a wireless energy transfer antenna, an LED light, and an ultra-thin silicon microchip.

Soft lens finds a wide range of applications in contact lenses which are remained as the significant and essential contributors to the global contact lenses market. These soft lenses are made up of flexible, easily bent and soft plastics such as silicone hydrogel that provide ease of adjustment to the eye and increase comfort. It is used for the correction of ametropia. They permit more oxygen to pass through the cornea present in the eye. An increase in oxygen permeability helps to increase comfort by reducing dryness and itching in the eye.


Increase incidences of myopia are one of the primary factor driving the growth of the global contact lenses market

Nowadays, myopia has turned as a prevalent eye disorder at a worldwide level, and the population affected is growing at a fast pace year by year. In 2010, 27% of the world’s population, i.e., around 1.9 billion were had myopia, and this value is predicted to grow at 52% by 2050.

Other than the above factor, the rise in the geriatric population, growing demand for daily disposable contact lenses, increasing importance for contact lens over prescription eye lenses, growing disposable income, rising prevalence of eye diseases and injuries and the high healthcare expenditure are few of the other key factors boosting the growth of the global contact lenses market.


The shortage of expert ophthalmologists, regulatory obstacles and high cost of the contact lenses, when compared to spectacles, are some of the major restraints to the global contact lenses market. Difficulties associated with the usage of contact lenses with another significant factor restricting market growth. Lack of knowledge over the usage of contact lenses, especially in rural areas, is impeding the demand of the market. Deplorable reimbursement policies from the government and other organizations are hampering the growth rate of the contact lenses market.
