Market Drivers

At present, both government and non-government organizations are conducting campaigns and programs to spread awareness about the treatments available for eyesight problems. Increasing awareness amongst consumers act as a primary factor for the growth of the eyewear market.

With an increase in eye-related diseases like cataract, there has been a substantial rise in the demand for prescription-based eyeglasses. Moreover, changing fashion trends have prompted manufacturers to introduce improved optical designs, materials, and enhanced coatings.
