PRINT & SHARE
Total contact lenses posted 4% growth in both retail value and volume terms in 2013, which effectively served to take the category to A$107 million and 33.6 million units. Contact lenses experienced the strongest growth across eyewear in 2013; however, industry sources indicate that the industry is starting to show signs of reaching maturity after several years of strong growth. Since 2012, contact lenses have represented 6% of the total eyewear market in value terms, and this figure is expected to remain consistent over the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

Johnson & Johnson Vision Care (Australia) maintained its lead over the contact lenses category with a 38% value share in 2012. This is due to the market-leading position of the company’s Acuvue brand, which is ranked first in contact lenses overall, as well as for daily disposable lenses and weekly/monthly disposable lenses. Although still the clear leader within the category, Johnson & Johnson’s market share declined slightly at the outset of the review period due to strong advancements from its competitors in the multifocal and toric markets; the share has been increasing since 2011.

Industry Prospects

Contact lenses are expected to register a 1% constant value CAGR and 3% volume CAGR over the forecast period. Less than 8% of consumers requiring vision correction wear contact lenses and, despite innovations in contact lens materials, comfort and range, this figure is not expected to see any great change over the forecast period.
