Overview of the German Optical Goods Retailing Market

Optical goods retailing in Germany has experienced continuous growth between 2013 and 2019. While demand was withheld in 2020, optical goods retail sales more than bounced back once stores reopened.

Moreover, the German optical goods retailing market grows further on the back of fashionable eyewear and other trends.

  • Germany Eyewear Market Size: Sales in the optical goods retail have increased by 1.5% over 2022 with further significant long-term growth expected from 2023 to 2028.

Optical Goods Retailing in Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • The Cost of Living and the Germany Eyewear Market: While the cost of living crisis causes consumers to postpone their eyewear purchases, the sector’s healthcare character will ensure some level of growth. Economic uncertainty will continue to limit spending throughout 2023, with a more positive outlook in 2024. Retailers are already experiencing consumer restraint, and shoppers could potentially resort to less-expensive alternatives such as contact lenses until their budgets improve.
  • Optical Goods Retailing Germany – Purchase Channels: Despite improvements in the online experience, 85% of German optical goods retailing market sales still happen in store, especially first-time purchases. However, once trust has been established face-to-face, many would be willing to shop online.
  • Germany Eyewear Market Trends: Increasing screen exposure will encourage more shoppers to seek eyewear products, both preventatively and correctively, while socially, the trend of eyewear as a style and fashion statement will continue to attract younger demographics.

Eyewear in Germany Market Forecast

  • Prolonged screen exposure and Germany’s ageing population will act as positive market drivers, creating new users of optical goods both preventatively and to remediate eyesight issues.
  • New technologies will lead to smart glasses, focus-adjusting eyewear, and stronger personalisation in design, colours, and materials. 50% of shoppers trust that they can identify glasses that fit them using digital facial measurement tech.
