Contact Lens Market to Witness 1.7x Growth

Cases of visual defects such as myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, and an ever increasing geriatric population that needs vision correction will drive the global contact lenses market. According to Fact.MR’s new study, the contact lens market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period, 2019-2029.

Shortage of trained professionals such as ophthalmologists emerges as a key challenge for market growth. However, disruptive automation in the manufacturing processes and innovative colors facilitate growth prospects in developing economies. Mass-adoption of contact lenses over traditional prescription glasses will continue to propel the contact lens market growth.

Offline Distribution Channel Continues to Influence Growth Strategies

Sales of contact lens through offline distribution channels accounts for 3/4th of the total revenue. This can be attributed to established behavior patterns of geriatrics who prefer buying contact lenses from physical stores. However, emerging millennial consumers are directing their sales towards online channels, further amplified by the presence of e-commerce platforms that deploy advanced virtualization techniques to enhance buying experiences. Online distribution of contact lenses is expected to grow at a dexterous CAGR of over 6% throughout the forecast period.
