Growing Demand for Fashion Eyewear Favoring the Asia Pacific Eyewear Market

The demand for fashion eyewear is growing steadily across the Asia Pacific with increasing per capita income and improving living standards. Eyewear is now used as a fashion accessory by fashion-conscious Millennials. For instance, the streets of Tokyo fashion hubs Shibuya and Harajuku are full of youngsters wearing trendy eyewear. Due to the revival of a retro ’80s look, large-framed glasses have become one of the most popular fashion accessories among women in their teens and twenties. Furthermore, according to a recent report published by Unicommerce, an Indian e-commerce focused supply chain SaaS technology company, the online fashion industry in Indian grew by 61% in FY21. The report further states that Tier 3 and cities beyond registered a growth of around 192% in FY21. Moreover, domestic/local brands like John Jacobs, IDEE, Lenskart, TitanEyePlus, Fastrack, and others benefit from it. Recently, Lenskart raised over 200 million to expand its retail outlets across India and expand the business into other European countries. The CEO of Lenskart claims that around 1.2 million glasses are sold every day in India. With the improving per capita income, growing fashionable products, demand is expected to drive the growth of the eyewear market in India during the forecast period.

Growing Prevalence of Myopia across the Asia Pacific

Because Asian young adults have higher rates of high myopia than non-Asian young adults, Asian populations suffer from myopia to a greater extent than non-Asian populations. According to the National Health Commission, approximately 50% of Chinese people are myopic, while the global average is around 30%. India also struggles with myopia, which affects 7 to 8% of children aged 5 to 15 in India, and this number is expected to increase significantly over the next few years. Over the past few years, Japan has also witnessed a rapid increase in the number of people enrolling for eye care treatment. A JAMA Ophthalmology and Association of Optometrists (UK) report indicates that myopia has been prevalent among the younger generation across Japan. The number of myopic children aged 6 to 11 and the number of myopic children aged 12 to 14 has been estimated at 76.5% and 95%, respectively, in 2019. The prevalence of such occurrences can be largely attributed to excessive screen time and a decline in outdoor activities.

The Offline Segment Holds Largest Share in the Market

Based on distribution channels, the APAC eyewear market is categorized into online, and offline. The offline segment dominates the APAC eyewear market and is expected to continue its dominance over the coming years. However, the growing inclination toward online channels indicates the fastest CAGR for the online segment in the coming years. The manufacturers have also adopted vertical integration and an effective distribution network to drive profitability. However, the offline segment remains the most preferred method to purchase eyeglasses due to the numerous advantages it offers, including eye examinations and consultations with practiced optometrists.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Asia Pacific Eyewear Market

Several countries in Asia-Pacific were placed under lockdown due to the rapid growth of COVID-19 in 2020. The COVID-19 virus is believed to have originated from China, which was the first country to announce a lockdown, leaving all industries at risk. The lockdown created many issues for eyewear companies across the value chain. The demand for eyewear products, therefore, witnessed a sharp decline in 2020. According to Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), Hong Kong, one of the largest exporters of spectacles and frames, registered a decrease of 22% in the export of spectacles, lenses, and frames in 2020. Likewise, the exports of products manufactured in mainland China dropped by 22% in 2020 due to the strict lockdown restriction, disruptions across the supply chain, difficulties in raw material procurement, and a lack of labor. On the other hand, despite the ongoing global health crisis, India saw mixed impacts, with brands like Lenskart posting double-digit growth in 2020 after losing 78% in 2019. On the other hand, Titan Eye Plus announced that it would pull out of large format stores as they have been witnessing stagnant growth.

Conversely, India is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period.
