Research and Markets: Spectacles in the US 2012


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Spectacles in the US" report to their offering.

During the recent economic recession, retail sales of spectacles struggled with both value and volume sales declining in 2008, 2009, and 2010. As the unit price of a pair of spectacles is quite high for most consumers, many chose to hold off on investing in new spectacles as economic conditions worsened. By 2011-12, however, the economy showed signs of improvement. As unemployment rates fell and consumer confidence grew, people were again willing to replace their old spectacles.
