EYE 2013 Static Map - Spectacles Show Little Signs of Losing Domination Within Eyewear


Global sales of eyewear continues to be dominated by spectacles, accounting for nearly 90% of eyewear value sales in 2012. A combination of high product prices and hygiene concerns sees Latin America as the least exposed to contact lenses, with the category contributing less than 5% of eyewear value sales. The global situation is unlikely to change dramatically over 2012-2017, as spectacles are expected to be on par with contact lenses in terms of value growth.
