Vision correction through lasik eye surgery Belfast has seen an increase in recent years coupled also with an increase in corrective eyewear. In fact, a study conducted by the Grand View Research suggests that the global eyewear market will have an expected value of about $142.18 billion by the year 2020
The market was shown to have an amount of 2750.3 million units in 2012. This amount is also expected to increase to about 3507.7 million by 2020. Such a growth of 3.25% in the amount of units of eyewear is the greatest factor for enlargement of the market.
The research shows that this market will continue to expand due to children having entered into corrective eyewear and surgeries at very early ages. The increase of tablet and mobile device usage among children as well as more exposure to television and computers tend to contribute to how children now have to eyes that need correction.
In fact, the region that shows the highest demand in this industry is North America, where the population is comparatively younger to that of its European and Asian counterparts.
The study also suggests that rural and developing areas that do not have easy access to vision correction as of the current date will see a large increase of market targeting of eye care services and companies because of their potential in terms of having corrective eye surgeries or corrective lenses. Thus, these rural areas would greatly contribute to the increasing size of the eyewear market.
Advancements in the medical field and steady diets have also contributed to having large elderly populations in several countries like Japan and several other European nations. This ageing population also contributes to an increase in the global size of the eyewear and corrective surgery market.
In line with that, Asia seems to be the fastest growing in this industry with about a 3.7% growth expected by 2020. On the other hand, Europe remains to be the largest sharer in the global market with a contribution of about 40% because of its ageing population and because of the comparatively higher prices of surgeries and eyewear.
