Global Soft Contact Lens Market 2017-2021

About Soft Contact Lens

The global soft contact lens market is expected to show rapid growth during the forecast period. The advances in technology have enabled companies to design lenses with better fit, clarity, and vision correction capability. Soft contact lenses were introduced almost 50 years after the rigid lenses and are a relatively new market offering. Minimal adjustment period, allowing a wearer to be comfortable right after using the lenses makes them the prime choice for those switching from eyeglasses to contact lens. Since comfort and convenience are the prime concerns for a person switching from eyeglasses to contact lenses, first time users are likely to opt for soft contact lenses over the other types.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global soft contact lens market to grow at a CAGR of 7.64% during the period 2017-2021.
