The single-vision lens, whether convex or concave, is the most basic type of spectacle or contact lens. The doctor-recommended glasses are contained in the lenses of the spectacles, which are of various kinds, and it is created with a specific prescription to address either short-sightedness or long-sightedness issue.

Factors Influencing Market Growth

The rise in consumer demand for stylish spectacles is contributing to the expansion of the worldwide spectacle lens market. A rise in consumer disposable income over the last few years has led to a growth in eyeglass purchases. Due to this, customers today tend to favor UV or blue light protection eyewear that is stylish, which drives global industry growth.

Additionally, the rise in the prevalence of eye problems among the senior population is driving the need and use of lens edgers boosting market growth. Optometrists can design and create spectacles in a matter of hours with the lend edger to make lenses more appealing to customers. As per the World Health Organization, at least 2.2 billion individuals worldwide suffer from near- or farsightedness. Nearly half of these cases, or at least 1 billion, involved vision impairment that might have been prevented or treated. Most of those afflicted were people over 50 age. Additionally, according to estimates from the U.S. Census Department, the number of older persons with eye-related conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and vision loss is predicted to increase dramatically and reach 83.7 million by 2050. Thus, it is anticipated that rising rates of eye problems, particularly in the senior population, will raise awareness of eye testing and increase demand for the spectacle lens market.

Governments and non-governmental organizations are attempting to improve people’s access to eye care, and these efforts are likely to present lucrative market opportunities from 2022 to 2030. For example, projects like VISION 2020: The Right to Sight in India in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the World Health Organization-India office, the Government of India, the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, and other significant stakeholders, India is holding a countrywide consultation.

Impact of COVID-19

According to the COVID-19 graphical illustration in the report the market will have a -8.71% Year-over-Year drop from 2019 to 2020. Due to restrictions and lockdowns throughout the past year, people were unable to purchase glasses from shops. However, the sales of contact lenses and eyeglasses increased from online channels. In spite of this, the YoY grows by 8.99% between 2020 and 2021 due to the preference of some parents to send their children to school in a safer environment until childhood vaccines are widely available. A combination of this approach, increasing indoor time due to self-quarantine, social distance issues, and an increase in digital device usage among children has raised concerns about myopia progression speeding up. Thus, these factors had a minimal impact on the global market.

However. the trifocal lenses segment will reach a revenue of US$ 10 million by 2023 as a consequence of an increasing number of patients experiencing blurry vision.

In 2021, on the basis of material, the polycarbonate segment acquired a share of approx 30% in the market due to its features such as durability and lightweight.

However, the non-prescription (Fake) glasses segment is likely to grow at a market revenue of approx US$ 10 million by 2027 due to their increased usage for style and fashion intents, particularly among youngsters.

In 2021, on the basis of distribution channels, the online segment had a leading position and is likely to grow at a CAGR of nearly 6.2% during the analysis period due to the growth in the number of e-commerce outlets that exclusively sell eyewear. For example, Lenskart is one of the most popular online eyewear brands in India. However, in the offline segment, the ophthalmology clinic/eye care centers segment recorded the highest revenue due to the increasing awareness concerning the significance of getting eyes tested by an expert.
