Optical Lens Cutter and Edger Demand Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

As per latest market analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, application of optical lens cutters and edgers over the past half-decade increased at a CAGR of around 4%. Online sales reach a valuation of US$ 118.5 million in 2021, in which, company-owned websites accounted for nearly 40% of unit sales.

Based on Fact.MR research, around 47,980 units of optical lens cutters and edgers were sold, including optical lens cutters, lens edgers, and hybrid products, in 2021 across the globe. Emergence of automatic technologies in optical lens cutting and edging solutions is set to improve product penetration by 2X over the assessment period.

Moreover, the utilization of automatic products is to reduce the operational time and processing cost for eye specialty stores. This improves precision and provides top-notch cutting and edging solutions in less time to end users.

In addition, swelling number of spectacles users is likely to push the demand for lens cutters and edgers across the globe. According to Fact.MR analysis, around 4 billion people globally use spectacles in their daily life, which is around 50% of the global population.

High usage of smartphones, laptops, and other electronic equipment is projected to create abundant demand for spectacles over the coming years. This phenomenon will directly affect the shipments of lens finishing equipment, since it provides a better appearance and clean edges to optical lenses.

The education system across the globe has been transformed drastically owing to the integration of technology in learning, leading to the introduction of online classes in education systems. Due to this, a sudden increase in the shipments of spectacles has been observed. This market scenario is projected to supplement the demand outlook for lens cutters and edgers during the assessment period.

What are the Various Factors Driving Demand for Optical Lens Cutters and Edgers?

“Automatic Lens Edgers – A Game Changer”

Emergence of automatic technology in optical lens cutters and edgers has eliminated the usage of water for finishing operations. Automatic lens edgers provide advanced dry cutting and edging technology in a single machine along with auto-calibration technology.

Integration of automation has provided various technical advantages such as auto-calibration and improved versatility of products over other sustainable cutters and lens edgers. Offerings of such advanced machinery are set to drive product demand over the assessment period.

“Product Customization & Use of Sustainable Materials”

Moreover, leading manufacturers of optical lens cutters and edgers are adopting the strategy of customization to attract new consumers. Top-notch customization as per customer demand, improving consumer comfort, and boosting functionality are likely to drive their revenue going forward.

Additionally, manufacturers are trying to provide sustainable materials for their machinery to attract new customers and diversify their product ranges. Customization in lens edgers and cutters is considered to be a game-changer, as a majority of end users, especially eye specialty stores, do not use standard products due to changes in blade size, speed regulation, size, and other parameters.

Increasing demand for automatic lens cutters due to their various technical benefits is anticipated to drive market growth and improve product penetration during the coming years.

How is the Optical Lens Cutter and Edger Being Prevented from Reaching its Full Potential?

“Gradual Shift toward Contactless Lenses”

Shifting consumer preference toward contactless lenses is likely to affect the sale of conventional lenses and limit the unit shipments of lens edgers and cutters in the near future. This is because contactless lenses require laser cutting technology for finishing and fitting.

The adult population is the consumer block in the optical instrument market and accounts for almost 2/3 of the demand around the globe, out of which, 11% utilize contactless lenses in their day-to-day lives.

The availability of attractive products in the lens segment has shifted their interest toward contactless lenses. This market phenomenon is set to reduce the sale penetration of lens cutters and edgers in the global market and lead to a decline in demand in the near future.

“Semiconductor Shortage Impeding Market Expansion”

In addition, the automatic product range of lens edgers and cutters utilizes several semiconductor and electronic components. During the COVID pandemic, a major drop in the manufacturing of semiconductors resulted in shortages across the globe. Factories being shut down was not the only reason, with the tension between superpowers such as the U.S. and China also contributing to trade disruptions.

For instance, the U.S. Government blacklisted Huawei, which supplied systems to American chipmakers. All these factors resulted in a downward trend in the manufacturing of semiconductors, ultimately hampering the machinery market by 15% in 2020 as compared to the previous years.
