Full Report Details

- ..


The global eyewear industry has suffered the consequences of the economic crisis, with many optical shops closing down during the last 4 years. However, in terms of revenue, the industry has now recovered and is expected to gain steady momentum in coming years.
Developed markets are the largest revenue contributors to the global eyeglasses industry due to the higher penetration of eyewear products in these geographies. Growth in the short to medium term period is expected to come from emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
Majority of Luxottica's operations are concentrated in North America and Europe but the company, through strategic acquisitions and organic growth is expanding into emerging markets. Strong brand portfolio makes Luxottica's products known all over the world and the company is determined to build its international leadership based on it.
