Unparalleled Market Dominance


All three brands above are owned by a little known Italian company by the name of 'LUXOTTICA'. Besides that, Luxottica is also licensed(often sole) eyewear manufacturer for just about every luxury brand imaginable. 

It also owns several popular eyewear chains across the world and eye care insurance firms. Watch the CBS 60 coverage of Luxottica here.

This is reminiscent of De Beers, which once controlled around 85% of the diamond market.
