In Malaysia, a shift in the fashion trends has been observed among the people in the recent years. People have started adopting Korean fashion trends in eyeglasses and sunglasses.

The incidence of myopia and presbyopia are on a continuous rise in the country in the recent years leading to an increased demand for eyewear products; especially prescription glasses and contact lenses.

Malaysia Eyewear market is a growing industry with high population base of fashion conscious, myopic and presbyopic target audience. The industry is expected to witness high sales of eyeglasses, sun glasses and contact lenses with increased eye care educational programs conducted by the Ministry of Health in partnership with the major eyewear players. The sales and promotional strategies adopted by the major players in the market are expected to continue to be the stimulus for the customers to further be attracted to the eyewear products offered by them. The rising rate of myopia and hyperopia in the country has also led to a rapid and increased acceptance of contact lens among the Malays.

The most preferred choice of spectacles among the Malaysians is expected to be influenced from Korean fashion trends during the forecast period. A recent trend visible among the Malaysians is that they are becoming increasingly fashion conscious, which is a positive factor for the eyewear products in the country. Improved fashion consciousness among the people shall also raise the share of the branded eyewear products in the market. The demand for sunglasses shall be raised owing to the fashion trend.

Malaysians are highly price conscious due to which the major players in the country offer branded eyewear products at discounted and affordable prices. Three major trends visible in the country during this period were retro (especially round shapes from the 1920s), colorful frames and the classic bold black frames. In terms of material, acetate was leading the race, especially with full-rim frames that are currently dominating the market.

One among the major concerns of Malaysia is the increasing rate of aging population in the country. Apart from an increase in the aged population, the aged are also living longer as underscored by an increase in life expectancy. A popular vision impairment that is caused by aging is Presbyopia which may not be permanently repaired through a vision correction surgery. By 2050, the aging population is expected to reach nearly a quarter of the population. This is expected to raise the demand for prescription glasses among the people aged 60 years or above.
