Executive Summary

The European eyewear market consists of prescription glasses, sunglasses, contact lenses and ready-readers. The European eyewear market has been showing tremendous growth potential since past several years. The major factors driving this market are 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 upsurge. 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 European eyewear growth is underpinned by structural growth drivers, such as ageing of the population, a still underpenetrated vision correction market and growth that is likely to be enhanced by lifestyle changes, as more affluent and educated consumers require more support for weakening vision.

Due to lifestyles changes people are getting eye defects at an early age and even children are getting affected by eye defects at early age. Early entry of children into the corrective eyewear domain as well as aging population is also expected to positively impact the eyewear demand in the European markets. The evolution of eyewear as a fashion accessory, and the trend of owning multiple pairs of eyewear as customers move towards viewing spectacles as a multi-unit purchase item similar to other accessories, tends to shorten the repurchase cycle of the eyewear. This shortening increases with rising disposable income and consumer confidence levels.
