Market Research Future (MRFR) has published a cooked research report on the “Scleral Lenses Market” that contains information from 2018 to 2032. The Scleral Lenses Market is estimated to register a CAGR of 6.80% during the forecast period of 2023 to 2032.


MRFR recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global Scleral Lenses Market— ABB Optical Group, Bausch Health Companies Inc., Visionary Optics, Essilor, Art Optical Contact Lens, Inc., CooperVision, BostonSight, AccuLens, Inc., Tru-Form Optics, SynergEyes, Valley Contax, Capricornia and Menicon Co., Ltd.


Market Highlights


The global Scleral Lenses Market is accounted to register a CAGR of 6.80% during the forecast period and is estimated to reach USD 0.50 billion by 2032.


The scleral lenses market is expected to grow due to the increasing demand for non-surgical solutions in vision care and treatment. A notable trend in the industry is the upward trajectory of customized scleral lens manufacturing. The market is projected to gain momentum as scleral lenses become more commonly prescribed for addressing corneal irregularities and ocular surface diseases.


Segment Analysis


The global Scleral Lenses Market has been segmented based on the Type, Application, and End-User.


Based on the Type, the market is segmented into Corneo-Scleral Lenses and Semi-Scleral Lenses, Mini-Scleral Lenses, and Full Scleral Lenses. The Corneo-Scleral Lenses and Semi-Scleral Lenses segment was attributed to holding the largest market share in 2022.  The corneoscleral lens addresses the limitations of both soft and rigid contact lenses. Offering a level of comfort comparable to soft lenses and enhanced acuity similar to rigid lenses, corneoscleral and semi-scleral lenses have been developed to fill this gap. With a diameter ranging from 14 mm to 15 mm, these lenses incorporate the principles of minimal movement and reduced lid interaction seen in soft contact lenses. The larger overall diameter provides comfort benefits, as the lens edge is tucked under both upper and lower lids, preventing direct contact with the sensitive lid margins. This design eliminates a common cause of foreign body sensation associated with Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses. The product's advantages, including improved comfort and reduced irritation, contribute to its growing popularity in the market.


Based on the Application, the Scleral Lenses Market has been segmented into Irregular Cornea, Ocular Surface Disease, Refractive Error, and Other Applications. The Irregular Cornea segment was expected to hold the largest market share in 2022. Irregular corneas often result in distorted vision, and traditional glasses or contact lenses may not sufficiently correct these issues. Scleral lenses, which conform to the shape of the sclera rather than directly interacting with the sensitive corneal surface, effectively address irregularities in the cornea. This tailored approach provides enhanced vision correction and visual acuity, particularly beneficial for conditions like keratoconus.


Based on the End-User, the Scleral Lenses Market has been segmented into Hospitals, Eye Clinics, and Other End Users. The Eye Clinics segment was expected to hold the largest market share in 2022. The surge in the number of independent practitioners and the uptick in lens fitting procedures at eye clinics are key factors contributing to this trend. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 49% of optometrists in the United States practice in independent offices. This rise in independently practicing optometrists is expected to fuel growth in the eye clinic segment, thereby boosting overall market expansion.

Regional Analysis


The global Scleral Lenses Market, based on region, has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. North America consists of the US and Canada. The Europe Scleral Lenses Market comprises of Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, and the rest of Europe. The Scleral Lenses Market in Asia-Pacific has been segmented into China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and the rest of Asia-Pacific. The Rest of the World's Scleral Lenses Market comprises of Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.


The largest market share for the Scleral Lenses Market was maintained by the North American regional sector. The United States plays a pivotal role in the scleral lenses market, driven by a higher prevalence of eye diseases and injuries. The growth is exemplified by statistics from the National Eye Institute, which reported approximately 12 million residents in the United States diagnosed with low vision in 2022. This figure is expected to rise significantly, reaching around 50 million by 2030. Furthermore, a Center for Disease Control and Prevention report highlighted that in 2019, approximately 54 million individuals aged 18 or older in the United States, constituting about 22.1% of the adult population, were users of scleral lenses. This upward trend is poised to contribute to the expansion of the scleral lenses market in the country throughout the forecast period.


Moreover, the Europe market has been persistently growing over the forecast period. Various eye conditions, such as irregular corneas, keratoconus, and other corneal irregularities, impact a significant portion of the European population. Geographically, Europe is home to an estimated over 30 million individuals who are blind or partially sighted. On average, approximately 1 in 30 Europeans undergo some degree of sight loss. The European Blind Union (EBU) leans toward an estimated 30 million visually impaired individuals. In addressing these conditions, scleral lenses emerge as an effective solution for vision correction, thus fueling the increasing demand for such lenses.


The expansion of the market in the Asia Pacific region is linked to the rising incidence of dry eyes and various eye diseases, particularly in countries like Australia and India. In India alone, there are approximately 4.95 million individuals with blindness and 70 million with vision impairment, including 0.24 million blind children. The economic impact of blindness in India is substantial, with an estimated net loss of INR 845 billion (Int$ 38.4 billion), resulting in a per capita loss of GNI per blind person amounting to INR 170,624 (Int$ 7,756). The cumulative loss of GNI due to avoidable blindness in India is staggering at INR 11,778.6 billion (Int$ 535 billion). Furthermore, factors such as the growing aging population, ongoing development of healthcare infrastructure, and increased investments in research activities are expected to propel the Asia Pacific market in the forecast period


Furthermore, the rest of the world's Scleral Lenses Market is divided into the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. The Latin America and Middle East & Africa regional markets are poised for significant growth in the foreseeable future, driven by the rising awareness of scleral products and recent advancements in the healthcare sector. Additionally, government-initiated awareness programs contribute to higher rates of diagnosis and treatment for ocular disorders in these regions, consequently boosting the demand for scleral lenses.
