Contact Lenses in France - New Market Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Oct 14 2015

In 2015, contact lenses continued to benefit from increased sales of silicone hydrogel and daily contact lenses. Penetration of these products was lower in France than in other European countries and benefited from the advice of opticians, which encouraged consumers to choose these products for daily or occasional use. Contact lenses was often chosen for events such as going out in the evening or for formal events and thus was regarded as a complement to optical spectacles.

Competitive Landscape

Contact lenses was a concentrated category in 2014 led by four main players, Laboratoires Alcon France, Johnson & Johnson, Bausch & Lomb France and CooperVision France. They held value shares of 31%, 21%, 17% and 10%, respectively.

Industry Prospects

Two major drivers are set to continue to drive sales of contact lenses over the forecast period. According to players, the penetration of daily contact lenses is lower than that of some other European countries and still has room for growth in the country. Silicone hydrogel will also play an important role in the development of the category over the period, notably due to manufacturers’ marketing initiatives, as well as the inclination of opticians to develop sales of this material.
