Russian Eyewear Market Space Reviewed by Euromonitor in Comprehensive Market Report Available at

07 Apr 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The Russian eyewear market kept on growing in both value and volume terms in 2014, although it at a slightly slower rate by contrast to the review period. The national eyewear market was more mature in 2014 with a broader scope of diverse products and better developed retail landscape.

The competitive landscape in the country’s eyewear industry did not change to a great degree during 2009-2013. The contact lenses category is very consolidated in nature with aparent leadership of a number of international players, whilst the spectacles category is still highly fragmented with a strong and consistent presence of unbranded products. However, the market is highly dominated by imported products. 

As a sales channel, non-store retailing in eyewear was very popular with consuimers. At the same time, a lot of store-based retailers developed online sales, offering a wide range of home delivery and collection options in different locations.

Russia’s conomic situation is unfavourable early in the forecast period, however, a slow recovery is expected afterwards. Nevertherless, there will be no rapid down-trading or sales decrease as people generally perceive eyewear as health care and safety products.
