Can Increasing Eye Disorders and Vision Impairments Contribute to Demand for Eyewear?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 2 billion people have a distance or near vision impairment, globally. In almost one billion or half of the cases, vision impairment was either prevented or has yet to remit. As such, increasing eye disorders such as glaucoma, cataract, trachoma, corneal opacities, diabetic retinopathy, presbyopia, and more, and vison impairments are contributing to increase in the demand for eyewear across the world.

Leading causes of blindness and vision impairment are cataracts and uncorrected refractive errors. Moreover, to prevent such chronic disorders, the need for correct eyewear is important. This is surging demand for suitable packaging for protecting the eyewear in order to prevent eye.

Also, not only do people with eye disorders wear glasses, but others, especially millennials, wear computer glasses for protecting their eyes from harmful rays that can damage the iris due to prolonged staring at the computer screen. For protection of eyes from UV rays that are emitted by the sun, people wear sunglasses. Also, the fascination of wearing different colored contact lenses has also resulted in rising sales of eyewear packaging in the market.

How are Increasing Eye Health Campaigns Augmenting Eyewear Sales?

Many governments have taken several initiatives and mandated eye checkups for all age groups, globally. Eye health campaigns are organized regularly so as to track people’s eye health and provide relevant cure. As such, this has augmented the sales of eyewear in the global market.

Also, the need for protection of delicate eyeglasses and contact lenses has unlocked several opportunities for eyewear packaging manufacturers, which is expected to boost the sales of suitable eyewear packaging over the coming years.

Are Harmful Impacts of Plastic-based Eyewear Packaging on the Environment Hindering Product Adoption?

Increasing usage of plastic-made products, globally, has resulted in high demand for plastic-based eyewear packaging products such as EVA cases. Paper-based eyewear packaging solutions are biodegradable and metal-based eyewear packaging solutions are reusable in nature. However, plastic-based solutions are neither recyclable nor biodegradable, which, in turn, creates huge amounts of waste in the environment.

Eyewear packaging accounts for more than 45% of packaging demand, globally. Therefore, eyewear manufacturers are opting for environment-friendly packaging solutions such as paper-based or wooden cases for eyewear packaging.

Plastic-based eyewear packaging solutions offer excellent protection and are tamper-evident, but due to the large number of harmful effects of plastic on the environment, more and more companies are moving toward sustainable eyewear packaging solutions.

Moreover, paper-based eyewear packaging products are lower in cost and offer optimum properties to keep eyewear safe while handling and transportation. This has created high demand for paper-based eyewear packaging solutions across regions.
