Further, for the in-depth analysis, the report encompasses the industry growth drivers, restraints, supply and demand risk, market attractiveness, BPS analysis and Porter’s five force model.
The global optical lens material market is segmented into lens type, material type, type, application type and design type. On the basis of lens type, the market can be further segmented into soft lens and gas permeable lens. On the basis of material type, it can be segmented into silicone hydrogel, flouro-silicone acrylate, hydrogel and PMMA. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into optical glass lens and resin lens. On the basis of application, the market is sub segmented into mobile phones, cameras, instruments and automotive (including HUD). Finally, on the basis of design type, the market is segmented into spherical, toric and multifold.
The global optical lens material market is anticipated to witness a significant CAGR of 8% during the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027 owing to increase in geriatric population and increase in use of electric gadgets and devices. The increased awareness of people about the use of high-quality lenses for eye protection and eye related disorders is anticipated to increase the market growth. The wide range of application and availability of variety in lens are expected to affect the market growth positively. The gas permeable segment coupled with silicone hydrogel material is anticipated to increase the market growth owing to improvement in vision clarity especially in case of astigmatism and presbyopia.
North America is anticipated to witness significant growth owing to presence of numerous manufacturers, eye care specialists, technological advancements, general awareness and government initiatives. The Europe region is also expected to have significant growth during the forecast period on the back of availability of high product range and acceptance by the people. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth in the market owing to presence of geriatric population especially in China and Japan which will lead to increase consumption of lens.
Advancements in lens technology for instance launch of See Series by Nikon, use of thiourethane resins in optical lens production as in case of MRTM and use of smart glasses coupled with the possibility of using and disposing lens daily and their regular replacement is anticipated to drive the market growth. However, increase in surgeries for eye treatment coupled with risks associated with use of lens for instance corneal ulcers, eye infections are expected to operate as key restraints to the growth of optical lens material market over the forecast period.
