Eyewear Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025

The global eyewear market was worth US$ 123 Billion in 2019, registering a CAGR of 3.3% during 2012-2019. The market is further projected to cross US$ 142 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.4% during 2020-2025. Eyewear products are generally worn for vision correction and protecting the eyes from excessive light, debris or harmful radiation. The frames and lenses of these products are mainly produced using plastic and glass. Currently, the global demand for good-quality eyewear products is being augmented by increasing prevalence of hypermetropia and myopia at young ages. In developing nations, improving lifestyles, urbanization and availability of advanced eyewear products are positively impacting the market growth. On the other hand, increasing exports and product innovations are supporting eyewear market across developed regions.

Global Eyewear Market Drivers:

  • At present, both government and non-government organizations are conducting campaigns and programs to spread awareness about the treatments available for eyesight problems. Increasing awareness amongst consumers act as a primary factor for the growth of the eyewear market.
  • With an increase in eye-related diseases like cataract, there has been a substantial rise in the demand for prescription-based eyeglasses. Moreover, changing fashion trends have prompted manufacturers to introduce improved optical designs, materials, and enhanced coatings.
  • The demand for eyewear products can be attributed to a rise in the cases of computer vision syndrome (CVS) which is caused by prolonged exposure to a computer or other display device. The occurrence of this disorder is generally noted in the working population experiencing dry, red eyes, blurred vision, eye irritation, headache and double vision.
  • In order to uplift their social status, consumers prefer to purchase high-end eyewear products. In addition, improving purchasing power of consumers in the emerging markets has enabled them to buy premium products which is further elevating the growth of the global eyewear market.

  • Women
  • Unisex


Currently, unisex eyewear products are the leading segment and account for a share of two-thirds of the total market. Generally, sunglasses are more popular in unisex styles as compared to regular prescription eyeglasses.
