The global eyewear market has been categorized into corrective lenses, contact lenses, sunglasses, frames and refractive surgical lenses. The eyewear market has been showing tremendous potential since past several years. The major factor driving this market is increasing usage and acceptance of eyewear products and prescription eyewear. With a large percentage of the population afflicted with conditions such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism, the demand for corrective eyewear is on the rise. Due to lifestyle changes, which involve increasing formal employment and extensive usage of computers, the number of individuals using corrective eyewear is also increasing.

The key factors which are anticipated to drive eyewear market growth include increased usage of silicon hydrogel, eyewear fashion and growing demand of kid’s sunglasses. The growth of the industry is hindered by sale of illegal novelty contact lenses, price differentiation between branded and unbranded frames and changing local conditions of various countries. The major factors which will contribute in the growth of the industry include growing ageing population since with age people get more eye problems, rising diabetic population, increasing urban population, and rapidly changing lifestyles.
