Apr 07, 2018

Glasses are seen everywhere in our daily work, study and life and are important daily necessities. With the gradual improvement of people's living standards, consumption of glasses began to increase gradually. At present, the cost of raw materials and labor for glasses has increased substantially. The serious overcapacity has led to intense competition in low-price industries. The optical industry has already bid farewell to the “extremely profitable era” and entered a new era of transformation and development, and the market outlook is still promising.

The

Shangpu Consulting's light industry analysts believe that the future development of the optical industry will focus on the following four aspects:

The

First, radiation protection glasses. According to statistics, there are approximately 360 million myopic people in China, and this number is still increasing. Among these myopic people, mainly office workers and students. In their normal work and study, they frequently come into contact with such items as computers, televisions and other radioactive materials. They generally require that the glasses worn have radiation protection capabilities, and the market for radiation protection glasses has great potential.

The

Second, middle-aged and older people reading glasses. At present, about 320 million middle-aged and elderly people in China need to wear reading glasses. With the increasing aging of the society, this number continues to increase. The middle-aged and elderly people's reading glasses market will become the second largest eyeglass market after glasses. Some middle-aged and older people are still not always wearing their reading glasses. Therefore, the portability of the glasses is high. The folding of the glasses will become the focus of the development of the mirror.

The

Third, 3D glasses. In recent days, 3D movies have been released frequently. Some TV stations have already launched 3D programs, and 3D TVs have begun to enter the homes of ordinary people. However, the current naked-eye 3D products are still not mature, and there is a great demand for 3D glasses.

The

Fourth, contact lenses. In addition to basic vision correction and vision care functions, glasses also have the characteristics of leading fashion consumption, especially the beauty-conscious ladies. According to statistics, about 30% of myopic people currently wear contact lenses, these people are generally more than a pair of contact lenses, coupled with their own contact lens damage rate, update rate is higher, the contact lens market has great potential.
