Global Eyewear Market to Grow at a CAGR of 8% over the Forecast Period of 2020-2025.

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Eyewear Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025’, the global eyewear market size was around USD 138.2 billion in 2019. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 8% between 2020 and 2025 to attain a value of USD 219.4 billion by 2025.

The global eyewear market is being driven by the rising demand for eyewear products for vision correction, protection of eyes from sunlight, and harmful UV rays,as well as to enhance one’s appearance. The growing demand for corrective glasses due to the increasing incidences of ophthalmic disorders such as myopia, presbyopia, and hypermetropia is mainly driving the growth of this segment, and in turn, propelling the eyewear industry further.

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the emerging market for the product over the forecast period. The growth of the market in the region can be attributed to factors like growing population, rising disposable incomes, growing consumer awareness regarding eyecare, and developing emerging economies like India and China within the region. China has emerged as the global leader in spectacles production and has a huge consumer base. The eyewear market in India is driven by the growing adoption of products for vision correction as well as from a fashion standpoint, along with the steadily flourishing online eyewear market in the region.

The significant investment by the companies in technology-based innovative solutions through new collaborations is expected to result in improved solutions for customers, thus, benefitting the overall eyewear industry. In November 2018, Fielmann Ventures GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fielmann AG (OTCMKTS: FLMNF), a key player in the industry, announced a multi-million investment in FittingBox, a global leader in 3D try-on and fitting technology, acquiring 20% of its total share. The investment by the company is aimed at expanding its digitisation strategy, aiming to digitise the eyewear industry to benefit consumers without compromising on quality. Such developments are expected to aid the growth of the eyewear market globally over the forecast period.
