Contact lenses have been popular on the back of their effectiveness in vision correction, in addition to convenience. Predominantly contributed by robust sales of soft contact lenses, the global market for contact lenses is set to reach US$ 8 Bn in terms of revenues by the end of 2019. A new Future Market Insights (FMI) study reveals that the contact lenses market will see a moderate CAGR over 2019 – 2029.
Soft contact lenses are the most prescribed contact lenses, while toric lens designs are significantly gaining popularity over the recent past. The latter are gaining traction attributing to their properties to correct mixed astigmatism. Moreover, these lenses are fashionable, serve various purposes owing to their anti-radiation (block UV rays) properties, and abilities to filter dim lights and work on miniature components. Demand for silicone hydrogel contact lenses is also on a constant rise, as they reduce the risk of hypoxia related eye problems.
