Spectacles in Canada - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Oct 02 2015

Spectacles growth over the review period was driven by two primary factors. First the demographic trends amongst Canadians are shifting towards an ageing population, with more Canadians developing the need for corrective eyewear due to age-related issues. Secondly, the rising use of small-screen electronic devices is seeing a rising number of Canadians need glasses due to continued eye strain from working with laptops and other small-screen devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Competitive Landscape

Luxottica Canada, the largest manufacturer of frames, retained the position of overall leader in spectacles in Canada in 2014 with a value share of 24%, supported by the popularity of its leading brands in Canada and a well-established distribution network though ECPs and its own retail chains LensCrafters, Sears Optical, Pearle Vision and Sunglass Hut. The company is a leader in sun and sports glasses with Ray-Ban and Oakley, a category that is experiencing strong growth in Canada supported by health, lifestyle and fitness trends. In addition to its sports glasses, Luxottica maintains a strong presence through its fashion brands, including Prada, Persol, Vogue, Michael Kors, Armani, Bvlgari and Ralph Lauren.
