The global Eyewear market size is expected to be worth around US$ 300 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Eyewear market size was valued at US$ 150.60 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
Advancements in lens-making technology enable eyewear manufacturers to produce large quantities of eye lenses, thus providing users with more affordable and diverse buying options. The integration of 3D printing technology with the eyewear manufacturing process further offers eyewear providers the opportunity to exercise efficient resource management and mitigate costs associated with extensive inventories, limited product design, and complicated supply chains.
The rising demand for customized eyewear among users is fueling the market growth. People prefer unique products that are tailored according to their needs, such as the shape of eyes and face, color and texture of glasses, and the frame's design and material. This is expected to result in the disruption of distribution models to meet end-users' demands, thus offering market growth opportunities over the next few years. To cater to this trend, an increasing number of eyewear manufacturers, such as Topology and Pair Eyewear, have started offering customized eyewear to their customers. These customized eyewear products include glasses with different features, such as eliminating UV radiation, photochromic glasses, and glasses with a high index number.
The spectacles segment captured a volume share of over 55% in 2020. This can be attributed to the high usage of mobile phones and digital screens, resulting in the rise in the prevalence of computer vision syndrome (CVS) globally in recent years. The growing popularity of online learning has further resulted in children developing CVS, thereby driving the adoption of anti-fatigue and anti-glare glasses. Additionally, recent trends such as the rising popularity of clear eyeglasses and bright translucent glasses have boosted the overall demand for spectacles.
The CONTACT LENSES segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2020. This can be attributed to continuous research in the field of contact lenses to develop products with improved user experience and better aesthetics. The introduction of light-adaptive lenses and multifocal toric lenses has been critical for the growth of the contact lenses segment in recent years. These modern lenses have been designed to smoothly and quickly change according to different lighting conditions, which reduced irritation and dryness often associated with contact lenses.
Electronic focusing eyeglasses are at the introductory stage of their product life cycle and are likely to gain traction in near future. The awareness level of the technology is quite low and the product is yet to be commercialized on a larger scale. Considering their added advantages and benefits, electronic focusing eyeglasses are expected to gain increased popularity among consumers in the next few years.
The brick and mortar segment dominated the eyewear market in 2020, with a revenue share of over 79%. There has been a slight decrease in the revenue share from previous years due to the implementation of lockdowns in several countries, which restricted brick and mortar stores' sales. However, the general trend of getting eye-power checked by the optometrist and buying glasses from the store is expected to remain strong over the forecast years. Furthermore, several companies such as Vision Service Plan, eyebobs, LLC, and Glassic, which earlier only had an online presence, have opened physical stores in recent years to facilitate omnichannel sales, generate awareness regarding new product updates, and increase footfall.
The e-commerce segment gained significant revenue share in 2020, as people were encouraged to stay at home and utilize online services for essentials. Furthermore, the rise in the adoption of smart devices, lucrative discounts, and the ability to easily compare prices and eyewear features offered by online players encourage customers to increasingly adopt e-commerce channels. E-commerce websites also enable users to read and write reviews about products, enhancing the customer journey, and promoting them to use e-commerce distribution channels. The rising popularity of the online distribution channel has resulted in a notable rise in the number of online eyewear start-ups worldwide, such as Eyewa, Hubble, and Ace & Tate.
Europe dominated in 2020 and held a revenue share of over 37%. The region, considered a fashion hub, witnesses people adopting eyewear as a fashion accessory, such as colored contact lenses, sunglasses, and frames. Moreover, the presence of several fashion brands in the region, such as Prada S.p.A., Guccio Gucci S.p.A., Christian Dior, and TOM FORD, ensure that healthy competition is maintained by offering their products at competitive prices. Essentially, eyewear products and sunglasses come under (PPE) in EU-regulated countries, making it mandatory for suppliers to adhere to the directives. This helps in regulating the market and ensures steady and healthy growth opportunities for eyewear companies.
