New market study, "Contact Lenses in Italy", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Nov 17 2015

In Italy, around 6% of the population wear contact lenses. Although the overall number of contact lens wearers has remained relatively stable over the last few years, the incidence of myopia has been increasing over the last 10 years, especially among younger consumers. In particular, this consumer segment demands fast and convenient solutions to eye health problems, which in turn serves as the key driver of the rising demand for daily disposable lenses, a category of products that are often considered to be best suited to the active lifestyles of modern consumers.

Competitive Landscape

Ciba Vision SpA was again the leading company in contact lenses in 2014, holding a value share of 22%. As the leading operator in all of the four contact lenses categories, Ciba Vision holds a strong position as an innovative manufacturer of high-quality daily disposable lenses, weekly/monthly disposable lenses and extended wear lenses.

Industry Prospects

Two major factors are set to continue driving sales of contact lenses in Italy over the forecast period. According to players present in the category, the penetration of daily contact lenses is lower than in some other European countries and there remains room for further growth in the category. The rising popularity of silicone hydrogel lenses is also set to continue playing an important role in the development of the category over the forecast period, notably due to the likelihood that the marketing initiatives of manufacturers will be adapted in response to the popularity of silicone hydrogel lenses as well as the inclination of opticians to develop sales of contact lenses made from this material.
