Better materials, novelty designs raise acrylic photo frames' quality


Higher transparency and durability, and increased visual appeal lead R&D efforts.




  • Better materials: Makers are increasing product value by utilizing acrylic with higher transparency, durability and resistance to scratches. Such inputs are mostly sourced from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
  • Decorative add-ons: Although simple designs continue to dominate output, embellished pieces are foreseen to gain popularity. These include releases that have LEDs and rhinestones.
  • Novelty shapes: Mainstream contours such as rectangle, square, round and heart are still standard, but suppliers expect atypical alternatives to receive more attention, especially from the younger demographic. Among these are curved, wavelike and cuboid frames.
  • Price projection: Companies anticipate an upward adjustment of 10 percent in coming months as labor costs keep increasing. Shipping fees are set to jump 10 to 15 percent in the next half-year as well, augmenting expenses further. Domestic inflation and the yuan’s appreciation are also contributing to the higher quotes.
