GrandViewResearch.com has announced the addition of "Global Eyewear Market Analysis And Segment Forecasts To 2020" Market Research report to their Database.
April 2, 2014 (Newswire) - Global eyewear Market is expected to reach USD 142.18 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Expanding wearer base coupled with increasing penetration of eyewear for vision correction is expected to fuel market growth over the next six years. A large percentage of the population in rural areas of developing markets does not have access to eye care facilities and services, which represents considerable untapped market potential for industry participants.
Early entry of children into the corrective eyewear space as well as aging population is expected to positively impact demand on a global level. Growing urbanization and disposable income, along with awareness regarding the need for protecting the eyes against UV rays has led to high demand for plano sunglasses. Acceptance of alternative methods of vision correction including refractive surgeries such as LASIK and PRK are estimated to restrain market growth over the forecast period.

3. North America dominated global demand in 2012; while Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing regional market, at an estimated CAGR of 3.7% from 2014 to 2020. In terms of revenue, Europe accounted for over 40% of the total market in 2012, because of significantly high selling prices as compared to the global average.
4. The global market space consists of numerous participants, divided among contact lenses, spectacles and plano sunglasses suppliers. They follow strategies such as product innovation, vertical integration and mergers and acquisitions to gain market share. Establishment of a widespread and effective distribution network is seen as the key to achieving market expansion.
