The global Eyewear market is expected to experience robust annual growth over the next five years, driven by shifting consumer megatrends, changing market structures, and technological innovations. Aging is one of the most significant global demographic factors impacting eye care because the need for vision correction increases and becomes more complex as a person grows older. Additionally, longer screen time, especially among youngsters, may have more serious effects than previously thought, boosting demand for preventive eye care.
Consumers across the globe are becoming increasingly health-conscious, and this trend is driving the demand for eyewear products that offer both vision correction and protection from harmful UV rays. Demand for eyewear products that incorporate advanced technology, such as smart glasses and contact lenses, is also on the rise. Consumers are looking for products that are not only functional but also fashionable, with a focus on quality and durability.
