The growing burden of optical disorders in Japan is significantly contributing to the rising demand for contact lenses. With an aging population and an increase in screen time among all age groups, conditions such as myopia, hypermetropia, and presbyopia are becoming more common. Corrective eyewear is already worn by a sizable portion of the population, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. In Japan, there is a growing trend toward enhancing personal aesthetics, which is significantly driving contact lens demand. Manufacturers are actively investing in product innovation and comfort-enhancing technologies to meet rising demand. Individuals' increased screen time in Japan has become a significant catalyst for an anticipated surge in demand for contact lenses. Furthermore, it is worth noting that the aesthetic consciousness of Japanese society plays a critical role in driving the preference for contact lenses over traditional eyeglasses, further inflating demand for these vision correction options.
The rising popularity of corrective eye surgery in Japan is expected to have a significant impact on contact lens demand. Contact lens use may decline in Japan as people become more aware of the potential health risks associated with prolonged use.
- In 2023, the silicone hydrogel segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on material type, the Japan contact lens market is segmented into silicone hydrogel, hydrogel, gas permeable, and others. Among these, the silicone hydrogel segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. This is due to their high oxygen permeability, which not only reduces eye dryness but also provides the wearer with exceptional comfort throughout the day. Silicone hydrogel lenses, unlike other types of lenses, are designed to allow more oxygen into the eyes, promoting healthier and more comfortable vision correction. Furthermore, these lenses are known for their outstanding durability and high water content, which ensures a comfortable and long-lasting wearing experience. Since silicone hydrogel lenses are designed to resist deposits and maintain lens surface moisture, they provide optimal eye health. This improves comfort while also lowering the risk of eye infections and irritation.
- The spherical segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.
Based on the design, the Japan contact lens market is segmented into spherical, toric, multifocal, and others. Among these, the spherical segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. This is largely due to the widespread use of spherical contact lenses, which are affordable, widely available, and capable of correcting common vision problems such as myopia and hyperopia. Spherical contact lenses are popular due to their ease of use and compatibility with a wide range of eye shapes.
- In 2023, the corrective segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on application, the Japan contact lens market is segmented into corrective, therapeutic, cosmetic, and others. Among these, the corrective segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. These lenses have several advantages over traditional eyeglasses. They provide a natural field of view because they are fixed directly on the eye's surface. They are effective in correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism in patients.
- In 2023, the disposable segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on wear type, the Japan contact lens market is segmented into disposable, and reusable. Among these, the disposable segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increased consumer preference for disposable lenses, which provide greater user comfort. Furthermore, since they avoid the problems associated with longer lens replacements, these lenses are considered the healthiest by the majority of users and are increasingly prescribed by eye care professionals. As a consequence, many players have begun to develop disposable lenses. Disposable lenses are a soft and flexible plastic material that is commonly used by people who participate in sports or live an active lifestyle. Since a new pair of contact lenses is used every day, they are less likely to cause irritation, infections, itchiness, and other problems by preventing the accumulation of proteins, lipids, or bacteria.
- The retail stores segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.
Based on distribution channels, the Japan contact lens market is segmented into retail stores, hospitals & clinics, and online. Among these, the retail stores segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. Many customers prefer to buy from retail stores as they provide immediate access and speed up the purchase decision. These stores' eye-care professionals provide personalized prescription services based on the customers' vision needs. The segmental growth can be attributed to manufacturers' ongoing initiatives to produce advanced products at very low retail prices, which are then combined with additional discounts offered by retail sellers.
