Eyewear Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global eyewear market reached a value of around US$ 132 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 196 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of around 7% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Eyewear refers to the products that are worn by individuals for vision correction or for protecting the eyes from various external factors, including light, debris, harmful radiation and severe environmental changes. These products, including spectacles, sunglasses and contact lenses, use a vast array of frames and lenses that are usually made from carbon fiber, glass or plastic. They are widely recommended by healthcare professionals for improving visual acuity and preventing ultraviolet (UV) rays from damaging the retina and lens of the human eyes. Their regular use can also assist in reducing the intensity and frequency of headaches and migraines that are usually triggered by bright sunlight or prolonged exposure to digital screens and gadgets. Additionally, these eyewear products are beneficial in reducing the strain caused on the eyes as a result of fatigue. Apart from this, they can be used to treat or minimize the chances of developing several visual ailments and eyesight related problems, such as myopia and hypermetropia.

Increasing Incidences of Ocular Diseases Impelling Market Growth

The market is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of ocular diseases on the global level. There has been a considerable rise in the cases of partial and severe vision impairment among adults and rising incidences of myopia and hypermetropia among children, which is contributing to the increasing demand for eyewear as an appropriate measure to prevent further damage. In addition to this, there has also been a significant increase in the occurrence of other eyesight related disorders, such as eye irritation, dry eyes, computer vision syndrome (CVS) and double vision, especially among working professionals. This can be accredited to the strain caused on the eyes due to the prolonged use of laptops, smartphones and tablets. This, in turn, is escalating the demand for advanced glare-free prescription eyewear with enhanced durability. The growing geriatric population across the globe is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. The elderly population is more commonly diagnosed with fatal ocular disorders, such as cataract and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Numerous government and non-government organizations are consequently organizing informative initiatives and programs to spread awareness regarding the preventive measures and treatments available for these eyesight problems. This has led to an increase in the uptake of several eyewear products.

Introduction of Smart Glasses to Facilitate Market Growth

Rapid urbanization and the rising preference for aesthetic products among the masses have led to the increasing adoption of trendy and designer sunglasses and spectacles as a means to enhance their appearances while protecting their eyes from damage. The escalating sales of luxury and premium eyewear can also be attributed to the evolving purchasing patterns of individuals and the growing preference for asserting and uplifting their social status. This has impelled players to introduce product variants with improved optical designs, materials and advanced coatings. Numerous key players are also launching smart glasses in the market that are expected to gain widespread prominence among users. These glasses are commonly integrated with augmented reality (AR) that employs internal and external sensors to collect varied information and store them. They have the capability to control or retrieve data from other digital devices while projecting the required information on the lens of the glasses. These glasses are widely used for conveniently using navigation apps or checking real-time notifications without the hassle of checking their smartphones for the same. These glasses can also be utilized to track the physical fitness of the user by tracking steps, distance covered and calories burned in a given period.

Integration of Advanced Technologies with Online Channels to Create Positive Outlook

There has been a considerable increase in the preference for purchasing eyewear through online channels over the past few years. Significant improvements in the e-commerce supply chain and the growing confidence of customers regarding online transactions have further strengthened the growth in this segment. Several online players are now offering improved shopping experiences to users by leveraging advanced technologies in their applications. They are integrating their services with product virtualization and facial analysis to recommend apt eyewear designs that suit the facial features of individual customers. They are also employing bot guides to assist buyers in navigating the product choices, thus enhancing their overall experience. Multiple vendors are now venturing into the brick-and-mortar business model to expand their consumer-base, whereas others are utilizing 3D printing technology to produce tailored frames for their customers. Additionally, the growing popularity of targeted ads and the mandatory lockdowns imposed by the government of numerous countries in the light of the rapid outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are facilitating the market growth in the online segment. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the growing awareness regarding advancements in medical technology and the continual launch of innovative products.
