Infoholic Research LLP, a global market research and consulting organization, has published a study titled “Contact Lenses Market – Global Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2018–2024” (April 2018).

According to Infoholic Research the contact lenses market is highly lucrative due to growing popularity of contact lenses and increasing number of eye disorders. Technological advancements in contact lenses and increasing acceptance of silicone hydrogel contact lenses are providing an opportunity for the market to grow. However, complications associated with contact lenses and the availability of alternatives for contact lenses are hampering the market growth.

Business partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, and a multifaceted pipeline are the primary strategies of the market players. The Vision Care franchise attained revenue of $4.1 billion in 2017, a rise of 45.9% from 2016, due to the acquisition of Abbott Medical Optics (AMO). In August 2017, Carl Zeiss announced the acquisition of Veracity Innovations, LLC to continue to lead in advancing the digitalization of eye care. Various companies are concentrating on growing geographically. For instance, CooperVision recently launched MyDay Toric daily disposable contact lenses in the US
