Why do the prices of eyewear vary greatly?

21-11-11 12:10:22    By Bestsea eyewear

Some people can buy eyewear for tens of dollars, but some eyewear frames need thousands of dollars, or even tens of thousands of dollars. Many people think eyewear are a profiteering industry. Because the price of eyewear varies greatly, sometimes there is not much difference in appearance, but the price difference between the two is large. But if you compare carefully, or have worn many eyewears of different prices and materials, you will find that there are reasons for the differences in eyewear prices. So what are the factors affecting the price of eyewear? In this paper, We mainly analyze four factors, namely material, quality, brand and style.

eyewear price gap factor 1: eyewear materials are different. eyewear materials are divided into frame materials and lens materials. The frames are mainly made of natural materials such as plastic, cellulose acetate, metal, titanium and ox horn. The eyewear made of these materials are called plastic eyewear, acetate eyewear, metal eyewear, titanium eyewear and buffalo horn eyewear. Among them, plastic eyewear have the lowest price because of their low material price, simple process and moderate material price of plate eyewear and metal eyewear, It is the main type of medium and high-end eyewear and one of the most popular eyewear at present. Titanium materials are more expensive than others and the processing technology is more complex, so titanium eyewear are more expensive. Due to the scarcity of materials and difficult processing technology, buffalo horn eyewear have always been synonymous with luxury eyewear, and their price is generally the most expensive.

Common lenses include glass lens, PC lens, CR39 lens, nylon lens and poly lens, as well as various coating processes attached to the lens. Compared with these lenses, PC is the cheapest, followed by CR-39, nylon and glass, while poly is generally the most expensive. Of course, except for cheap TAC poly tablets, TAC materials are relatively cheap and the process is relatively simple. The coating process will also affect its price. For example, CR-39 can be plated with reinforcing lens, waterproof lens, oil proof lens and coating layers of various colors. The more types of lens are added, the higher the cost and the more expensive the price.

eyewear price gap factor 2: different eyewear styles. Theoretically, on the premise of the same materials, the simpler the style, the simpler the process and the cheaper the price; The more complex the style and the process, the higher the cost and the more expensive the price.

eyewear price gap factor 3: different eyewear quality. Even for the same type of products, the materials are relatively close, but the differences in the process and details of production will still lead to differences in quality. The price of good quality products is naturally more expensive, which is easy to understand.

eyewear price gap factor 4: eyewear brands are different. The price of eyewear of different brands must also be very different. From an economic point of view, this is called brand premium. When we buy eyewear, we will deliberately choose our favorite brands, because different brands represent different tastes, different services, and even identity symbols. The same type of eywear, but the price difference between different brands may be huge.

The above are the main factors causing the price gap of eyewear. Of course, in addition to these factors, there are also some other factors. For example, sometimes different prices in sales places often vary. The sales price in some high-end stores is naturally higher than that in ordinary stores. For another example, the time of sales will also have a difference on the price. When a new product is just launched, the price is often more expensive, while when promoting sales or selling inventory, the price is generally cheaper. There may be many factors that affect the price. I won't analyze them one by one here. I hope the above analysis will be helpful to you.
