The COVID-19 pandemic has led to brought various businesses and sectors across the world to a standstill. This aspect has also impacted the optical lens materials market negatively. However, a glimmer of hope emerges for the optical lens materials market during the COVID-19 pandemic. The SARS-CoV-2 outbreak prompted the governments of various countries to implement stay-at-home orders. This order has led to numerous individuals across the globe to stay at home.
As children are more vulnerable to the virus, it is strictly recommended for them to stay at home. This aspect has led to an increase in smartphone and television consumption among children. Vision-related problems are slated to rise among children in this lockdown period, thus increasing the demand for optical lens. This factor will eventually lead to an increase in the growth rate of the optical lens materials market.
Generation Z and millennials may also encounter these problems on a large scale as many of them are addicted to smartphones and television. Hence, the demand for optical lens may escalate during the lockdown period, eventually bringing good growth for the optical lens materials market.
Growing awareness among the global populace for superior quality lenses may serve as a robust growth pillar for the optical lens materials market. The use of optical lens materials in different procedures may also bring good growth for the optical lens materials market. For instance, CorNeat Vision recently started human implantation of CorNeat KPro synthetic cornea. The device’s lenses provide good optical quality and integrate smoothly with the patient’s ocular tissue. Such developments may churn new dimensions of growth for the optical lens materials market.
The optical lens materials market can be geographically segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. North America may serve as a prominent growth contributor for the optical lens materials market due to the presence of a large number of eye care professionals and various government and NGO initiatives undertaken across the region. Asia Pacific may also witness rapid growth due to the growing geriatric population.
