According to BlueWeave Consulting, Global Contact Lenses Market is estimated to be USD 18 billion in 2026 from USD 12.79 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 5 % from 2020 to 2026. A contact lens is used to correct refractive inaccuracy and compensate for visual deficits, such as myopia, hypermetropia/hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism. An increase in the number of visual imprecisions is predictable to drive market growth. Growing participation in outdoor activities is expected to boost product demand in the upcoming years.


Some of the significant reasons characterizing market development are the growing occurrence of visual damages and eye disorders, and technological advancements in ophthalmology. Consumers’ fondness for high-quality products is also validating companies to invest in the research & development of innovative smart lenses.

Growing savings in logistics & warehouses facilities coupled with the expansion in the overall e-commerce business also helps increase product demand over the forecast timeframe. However, the side effects of contact lenses are expected to limit market development over the forecast period.


“Online store dominates the Distribution Segment”


The online store section is expected to grow at a rate of over 7% during the predicted period due to the rise in customer’s preferences for online shopping. The growing internet penetration is enabling customer’s access to several lenses through smartphones and tablets. Numerous e-commerce platforms are proposing competent and cost-effective solutions for ordering cosmetic lenses online. Changes in customer choices toward online buying and thriving e-commerce will recover product requests.

A rise in R&D Activities

Progressions such as the launch of dynamic soft contact lenses integrated with advanced technology have pushed contact lenses' request. Like, In November 2018, IMEC and SEED Co. Ltd, an international R&D hub, entered a collective partnership to develop a smart contact lens. This contact lens will have constituents, such as a radio-frequency antenna for wireless energy transfer, an ultra-thin silicon microchip, and LED light.
