Market Overview:

The global non-spherical optical lens market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for cameras, optical instruments, and ophthalmics applications. In addition, the growing demand for non-spherical optical lenses from emerging economies is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, factors such as high manufacturing costs and limited product differentiation are restraining the growth of this market. On the basis of type, glass optical lens held a major share of the global non-spherical optical lens market in 2017. This can be attributed to their superior properties such as high transmission efficiency and low dispersion that make them suitable for use in various applications such as cameras and ophthalmics applications.

Global Non-spherical Optical Lens Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A non-spherical optical lens is a lens that is not perfectly round. This type of lens can be used to correct vision problems or to focus light in specific ways.

Glass Optical Lens:

Glass optical lens is a type of non-spherical lens that is made from glass. It has properties such as high refractive index, low dispersion and can be used for making images clearer or more focused. The most common types of glass lenses are borosilicate, fiber, crown and flint.

Plastic Optical Lens:

Plastic optical lens is a type of plastic that can be molded into various shapes and used as an alternative to glass lenses. They are lightweight, durable, easy to install and have a wide variety of applications. The most common application is found in the field of non-spherical optics where they are used for producing highly accurate custom optics for numerous industries such as medical, aerospace & defense etc.

Plastic optical lens is a type of plastic that can be molded into various shapes.

Application Insights:

The cameras application segment accounted for the largest share of over 50.0% in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Non-spherical lenses are used in camera applications as they offer superior performance, especially at a budget price range. The optical instruments application segment is also expected to witness considerable growth during the forecast period owing to increasing use of non-spherical lenses in medical imaging devices such as ophthalmoscopes and retinoscopy.

Non-spherical lenses find their usage across various other applications such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) glasses, surveillance systems, industrial machinery inspection systems.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to extensive research and development undertaken by key industry players in this region, which has led to the introduction of innovative products for non-spherical optical lens applications. In addition, increasing demand for compact cameras due to their ease of use and portability is anticipated to propel product adoption in North America over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as a lucrative regional market during the same period owing her large population base with growing disposable income levels coupled with rising awareness about advanced ophthalmic treatments & devices among patients seeking medical assistance for eye diseases such as cataract & refractive errors (i.e., presbyopia).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for miniaturization in consumer electronics and medical devices
  • Development of new applications for non-spherical optical lenses in the automotive, aerospace, and defense industries
  • Advances in manufacturing technologies that can produce non-spherical optical lenses with higher precision and accuracy
  • Growing demand from emerging markets such as China and India
  • Increased research and development spending by lens manufacturers to develop new products
