The increasing demand for premium eyeglasses and sunglasses among the customers is growing in the European countries such as Germany, UK, France, and Spain. The personalization of eyewear products and services has helped the small eyewear marketers to develop long-term relationships with customers and encourage repeat business for the company. Additionally, the eyewear manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the development of eyeglasses and sunglasses in new styles, shapes, and sizes. This continuous improvisation has provided the consumers with more product options.

The eyewear market is segmented on the basis of product type into spectacles, sunglasses, contact lenses and sportswear. Spectacle holds the dominant share in the global eyewear market due to rising geriatric population and increasing prevalence of visual disorders being major factors. For instance, according to the WHO, about half of all 65-year-old Americans had some degree of cataract formation in their eyes with the percentage higher among 70-year-olds in 2016. The WHO estimates around 2 billion people across the world are expected to cross 60 years of age by 2050, which is triple that in 2000. This is expected to lead to rising demand for spectacles. Thus being one of the major drivers for the growth of the spectacles segment in the overall market.
