The top three revenue-generating product segments in the global soft
contact lens market are discussed below:

Daily soft contact lens

Daily soft contact lens are the most popular products in the
market, holding close to 35% of the overall shares. This segment is
expected to be the fastest-growing segment, due to the absence of
accumulation of lens deposits, and cleaning requirements
Amber Chourasia, a lead analyst at Technavio for health
and wellness

Manufacturers in the soft contact lens market are shifting their focus
from manufacturing hard contact lenses to comfortable soft
contact lenses. For instance, CooperVision, launched MyDay
daily disposable contact lenses made of a new silicone hydrogel material
that is only 4.4% silicone, making space for more moisture to the eyes.

Weekly replacement lens

The weekly replacement lenses are more durable than daily disposable
lenses. The US is the largest contributor to this market segment and
will continue its dominance through the forecast period. The dominance
of the US is mainly due to the availability of the lenses in the country
combined with the increased awareness about the product. Also, the
introduction of new materials in the manufacture of these lenses has led
to significant improvements in the safety aspect of these lenses,
leading to the growth of the market segment.

Monthly replacement lens

The global market for monthly replacement lenses is growing
slowly, with the market segment nearing saturation. These lenses come
across as a very affordable option to consumers looking for vision
says Amber.

Currently, innovation and quality are taking over the product designing
process. The launch of new and innovative products is expected to rise
the demand for monthly disposable contact lenses. Other advantages of
these lenses include their ease of cleaning, affordability, low
maintenance, and durability.
