Party spectacles with nontoxic, lightweight materials gain ground

 

Companies are producing safer products in novelty motifs.

 

TOP TRENDS

  • Increased safety: Makers continue efforts to ensure party spectacles are nontoxic. They aim to utilize only lead- and nickel-free materials for coating or electroplating in the months ahead so as not to harm the user’s skin. To avoid hurting the face and eyes, the frames have blunt corners and the lenses fastened firmly to the rim.
  • PC to dominate output: Aside from utilizing innocuous materials, suppliers are turning to lightweight inputs for enhanced comfort. To this end, PC is forecast to replace ABS as the top choice for frames and lenses. It weighs 15 to 20 percent less than the latter plastic type.
  • Novelty motifs still key: Unusual designs and shapes remain the strongest selling point of party spectacles. A variety of contours, including beer bottle, ice cream, sunflower and animal, is available. Embellishments such as imitation stones are also incorporated for added appeal.
  • Price increase: Markups of about 10 percent are expected in coming months. Last year, labor outlay climbed 30 percent, while the yuan appreciated by more than 4 percent. Suppliers see this trend continuing throughout 2012.
