Key Market Trends
Demands from the Geriatric Population and Rise in the Number of Optical Deficiencies
The eyewear industry is propelled by the growing demands for corrective and prescription- based spectacles, especially from the geriatric population - several clinical studies found a strong linkage between ageing and increased risk of developing certain eye diseases leading to low vision. Visual impairment disproportionately affects the elderly. With advancing age, the normal function of eye tissues decrease and there is an increased incidence of ocular pathology. The high prevalence rate of diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, owing to the lifestyle conditions are further known to aggravate the rates of blindness and visual impairment. The accelerating degradation of eyes is boosting the market sentiments of the eyewear products.
Asia- Pacific is Likely to Experience the Highest Growth Rate
A paradigm shift has been observed in the Asia- Pacific region where the consumer perception for eyewear is changing from function to fashion. Attributed to the growing economy and increasing purchasing power, the consumers in the region are buying eyewear as a fashion statement as well.
By country, China emerges as the world's leading manufacturer of spectacles along with the largest potential consumer base. They also have the highest population rate with myopia, which suggests a huge potential for the spectacles market. Some of the major players in the market are Luxottica, Johnson and Johnson, Hoya Corp, and others who are competing on the basis of the number of in- house and licensed brands, price range, product variants of each brand, type of glasses, and other parameters.
The market is highly fragmented and is dominated by very few key players, such as Luxottica Group SpA, Safilo Group, and Essilor International. The most adopted strategies of the key players are product innovation and development, followed by partnerships/joint ventures, and expansion.
Moreover, companies are investing significantly in technology- based innovative solution through new ventures, partnerships, or acquisitions.
For instance, Fielmann Ventures GmbH's recent acquisition of the shares (20%) in augmented reality specialist, FittingBox SA, as part of a capital increase.
