KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Economic instability resulting in slowing demand for contact lenses in South Africa further impacted by emergence of COVID-19 and lockdown measures
Intense competition amongst leading players in 2019 but contact lenses remains fragmented landscape
E-commerce gains marginal value share following closure of optical shops during the lockdown but latter will remain dominant distribution channel
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Marginal improvement in demand for contact lenses from 2021 as consumers return to daily routines with cost-effective frequent replacement lenses gaining in further popularity
Category must contend with further economic instability and weakening disposable incomes following lockdown resulting in declining unit prices
Rising incidents of myopia indicate eye health concerns amongst younger consumers who are open to experimenting with contact lenses, while ageing society will also drive demand from more affluent older South Africans

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Temporary closure of optical shops during lockdown results in slowing demand for optical shops, exacerbating trend already noted pre-COVID-19 due to economic instability
Spectacles fairly concentrated in the hands of major players in 2019
Heightened awareness of need for strict hygiene routines during the pandemic could benefit further development of spectacle lens cleaning solutions
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Spectacles slow to gain stronger upturn in demand due to price sensitivity
Increasing cases of various eye health conditions in South Africa will continue to drive greater demand for readymade reading glasses and spectacle lenses
Fashion trends will continue to reduce stigma attached to wearing spectacles, with lower-priced options which follow global designs likely to gain in relevance

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Declining demand for sunglasses amidst unstable economy and weak consumer sentiment exacerbated by emergence of COVID-19 and lockdown in 2020
Luxury designer brands lead sunglasses in 2019 but more affordable private label and low-cost lines from mixed retailers perform well due to increasing price sensitivity
Apparel and footwear specialist retailers offer expanding range of sunglasses attracting younger consumers of fast fashion
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Strengthening decline predicted for sunglasses due to further economic instability as consumers prioritise their spending
While younger affluent South Africans will continue to be influenced by social media and global trends, pandemic is likely to slow new product development of sunglasses
