Global Reading Glasses Market is valued at approximately USD 41.12 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 5.6% over the forecast period 2022-2029. Reading glasses are the sort of eyewear that is used to help with vision when a person is unable to read the text clearly. This is attributed to a wide range of ocular conditions, including presbyopia, astigmatism, hyperopia, and others. The rising prevalence of various ocular disorders, coupled with the surging demand for trendy designs and branded products among the young population are some prominent factors that are fueling the market demand across the globe.

The increasing ageing population is directly associated with the demand for reading glasses because it causes eye degeneration or visual impairments that include difficulty seeing small print or objects clearly. The World Health Organization estimates that by 2050, there are around 2 billion people in the world who are 60 years of age or older, which is a rise from 900 million in 2015. In addition, presbyopia is becoming more common in adults at a substantial rate. According to American Academy of Ophthalmology, it was estimated that 1.8 billion persons worldwide (about 25%) had presbyopia in 2015. Accordingly, the overall unmet requirement for presbyopia correction among them was 45%. Furthermore, it has been widely observed that older persons are more likely to have corneal astigmatism than younger people. Therefore, the escalating geriatric population is exhibiting a positive influence on the growth of the market. Moreover, the growing R&D investment, as well as the increasing availability of products on various online sales channels are presenting various lucrative opportunities over the forecasting years. However, the high cost of frames to slow sales of reading glasses in emerging regions and lack of awareness about ocular disorders are challenging the market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.

The key regions considered for the Global Reading Glasses Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World. North America dominated the market in terms of revenue, owing to the growing awareness regarding eye care products and the presence of key market players across the region. Whereas, the Asia Pacific is also expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to factors such as rising target populations, increasing prevalence of presbyopia among the population, and rising launch of products in semi-premium and lower cost range to be affordable to the economically weaker zones.
