The Analyst’s Take: Vision supplements poised for growth

Americans now spend over 11 hours a day with their eyes glued to a screen, according to Nielsen research. The effects of that blue light exposure on our eye health has been a recent subject of research across the supplements industry.

Due to this renewed focus, previously stagnant vision and eye health supplements are projected to spike in growth through 2019, reaching $554 million annually. Specific ingredients on the rise include lutein, lycopene, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin.
