New Consumer Goods research report from Euromonitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/03/2015 -- Spectacles recorded a healthy performance during 2014, with value growth in the category supported mainly by positive growth in retail volume sales rather than rising unit prices. As in 2013, volume sales of spectacles benefited from Germany?s ageing population, which resulted in a higher percentage of the population being forced to rely on spectacles to correct age-related vision defects such as myopia.

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape in spectacles in Germany comprises a mix of domestic retailers and manufacturers including Fielmann, Apollo-Optik, Rodenstock and Carl Zeiss Vision. Nevertheless, the category remains highly fragmented and the six leading companies combined accounted for just 39% of spectacles? value sales during 2013.

Industry Prospects

Spectacles in Germany is expected to record positive value growth in constant 2014 terms over the forecast period. There are several factors expected to contribute to this positive growth over the forecast period, including Germany?s ageing population, the increasing numbers of people being diagnosed with myopia at an early age due to the excessive use of consumer electronics devices such as smartphones and tablets, the increasing demand for trendy and fashionable forms of spectacles among consumers and rising sales of high-priced designer spectacles. Overall, the 2% volume and value CAGRs expected in spectacles in 2014 terms over the forecast period are set to represent a superior performance to the 1% volume and value CAGR recorded in the category in constant 2014 terms over the review period.
