The eyewear market is projected to witness notable growth especially in these covid19 lockdown and unlock times where people are mostly glued to their entertainment units such as tablets, laptops, television sets, and mobile phones. The imposition of stringent lockdowns worldwide has led to closure of retail stores and ophthalmic clinics. This caused some challenges and decline in growth rate for the eyewear market on a global level. However, the imposition of artificial intelligence and use of augmented reality apps that helps consumers to choose eyewear of their choice online is likely to fuel growth of this market in the coming years.
Online Channel sales is holding Highest Share On account of Recent imposition of Lockdown during the COVID19 Pandemic
With respect to segmentation by distribution, the global market for eyewear is bifurcated into online and offline channel. Previously, the offline channel gained the larger share on account of the number of small, medium, and large companies with their local, and international branches. But due to the recent pandemic of the coronavirus and mass number of deaths worldwide, all nations imposed stringent regulations on the business and retail sector. The fact that people were house-arrested and didn’t have the option to go out for their ocular check-ups, various manufacturers transferred their marketing and advertising to online sales channels, thereby attracting handsome revenues for themselves.
As per the report by Transparency Market Research, the global eyewear market was valued at USD 255,652.3 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 319, 015.5 Million by the end of 2027 by rising at a CAGR of 8.30%.
Continuous Exposure to Digital Screens will Increase Number of Ocular Diseases, thereby Boosting Growth

The product used for the production of eyewear such as contact lens, frames, and spectacles is usually made of plastic, glass, or carbon fiber.
