The eyewear industry is an ever-growing field, and Asia constitutes one of its major markets. In fact, the Korea optical market is the third-fastest growing in Asia. As the Korea Times reports, the growth of the luxury eyewear market in Korea has made manufacturers of famous global brands create Korea-exclusive designer eyeglasses and sunglasses, including such brands as Gucci, Dior, Armani, YSL, and others.
There are also rising domestic eyewear manufacturers and retailers in Korea, which manufactures and sells eyeglasses, frames, and other eyewear for domestic and export markets.
A growing market means increased competition between global and rising domestic brands of eyewear, which is good for both the eyewear industry as well as consumers, as it leads to an increase in production and customer service quality. The Korea optical market shows a lot of potential in this regard.
