Product Overview

Eyewear is a set of accessories worn over the eyes to correct vision or shield them from debris, harmful radiation, or too much light. Spectacles, goggles, and sunglasses are used to correct vision or shield the eyes from harmful UV rays and dust particles. Increased life expectancy, a rising geriatric population, and changing fashion trends have all fueled global demand for eyewear. In today's world, people don't only wear eyewear for vision correction; they even wear it to enhance their appearance. Because of technological advances and the availability of lightweight materials, several industry players sell innovative spectacles and lenses.

Market Highlights

Global Eyewear is expected to project a notable CAGR of 7.8% in 2030.

This growth is projected due to the rising popularity of fast fashion among millennials which is encouraging eyewear manufacturers to design affordable and attractive eyewear. The growth of online stores is also propelling the selling of Eyewear. E-commerce allows the simple purchasing of goods manufactured in remote locations. This, in turn, has made a major contribution to the development of the global Eyewear industry.

Global Eyewear: Segments

Spectacles segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-30

Global Eyewear is segmented by product type into Contact lenses, Spectacles, Sunglasses, and others. The spectacles segment held the largest market share of 7.8% in 2020. This is due to the widespread use of cell phones and digital displays, which has resulted in an increase in the prevalence of computer vision syndrome (CVS) in recent years. Children developing CVS as a result of the increasing prevalence of online learning has prompted the adoption of anti-fatigue and anti-glare glasses. Recent trends, such as the increasing popularity of transparent eyeglasses and vivid translucent frames, have also boosted the overall demand for spectacles.

Brick & Mortar segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-30

Global Eyewear is segmented by distribution channel into E-commerce and brick and mortar. Over the forecast period, the brick-and-mortar distribution channel is projected to expand at the fastest pace. Due to the introduction of lockdowns in many countries, which limited the sales of brick and mortar stores, the revenue share has decreased marginally from previous years. However, the general pattern of having one's eye power tested by an optometrist and then purchasing glasses from a store is expected to continue in the coming years.

Market Dynamics


Increasing living standards and dependence on digital technology

Increased demand for eyewear has resulted from increasing visual impairment and the need for vision correction. The younger generation is predominantly dependent on digital devices, spending the bulk of their time on cell phones, desktop computers, and video games. People have been motivated to purchase quality eyewear items that are in perfect keeping with their rising living standards as their disposable income has increased. Furthermore, people are now opting for fashionable and designer sunglasses in line with current market trends. Young people tend to use contact lenses to improve their overall look. As a result, growing living standards and heightened fashion awareness would lead to the growth of the eyewear industry, positively influencing the market growth.

Partnerships and initiatives for quality eye care

In order to minimize eye-related problems, deliberate attempts are now being made to standardize medical and vision care services in rural areas. Various states, in conjunction with various organizations, are introducing initiatives to provide quality eye care to the rural population. Rural residents would benefit from accessible healthcare and eye care services if such measures were introduced. As a result of these partnerships with various organizations, the eyewear market is expected to expand.


Changing fashion trends as well as consumer tastes

Changing fashion trends, as well as a constant change in customer tastes and expectations, have resulted in increasing prices for the Eyewear market over time. As a result, rising production costs for the market are having a negative effect on the global Eyewear industry.
