Increasing purchasing power backed by rising disposable incomes among the consumers across various regional markets is expected to drive the demand for sunglasses across the global market. Growing income level and households in the middle class have led to increased aggregate disposable income in developing regions.
Additionally, the proliferation of the internet and online retailing services is expected to positively impact the market. The Japanese market is characterized by growing demand for online purchase of sunglasses. However, growth in internet retailing has resulted in low product prices and thus has adversely affected the revenue streams. Growing purchase volumes of sunglasses are expected to curb the impact of this trend over the next seven years. High scope for penetration in this sector is expected to be an opportunity for industry participants.
Independent retailers and stores are businesses under private ownerships. These are usually single-store operations and offer both high risks and high rewards for the store owner. Major sunglasses vendors and brands give away franchising rights to individuals or enterprises willing to open up independent stores for a specific brand, retailer, or vendor for a certain royalty or franchise fee to be given to the sunglasses manufacturer.
Manufacturers have also made available prescription eyewear and sunglasses across several regions to grow their customer base. However, there lies a strong belief among consumers that sunglasses sold at certain drugstores are not customized and not in accordance with the prescription, due to which they do not focus the images but rather make them appear larger, thus costing significantly lesser.
Companies such as Luxottica Group S.p.A., Prada SPA, Safilo Group S.p.A, Fielmann AG, De Rigo SpA, Kering SA, Capri Holdings, LVMH, Marcolin S.p.A, and Maui Jim are some of the key players operating in the market.
