The global luggage market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026).
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the major part of the population of the world to sit at home owing to travel restrictions and lockdown, the luggage and backpacks industry has been hit hard by the pandemic. Also, most of the potential consumers limited their spending on travel luggage which directly impacted the sales revenues of top big brands in the luggage market. However, as the pandemic situation is improving gradually, the spending patterns of consumers have strengthened and the market is expected to regain its potential as the economies of the developing nations improve.
Change in lifestyle, increasing travel and tourism, customer inclination toward high-end luggage, owing to rising disposable incomes are likely to positively impact the growth of the market during the forecast period.
The growing convenience of online shopping has led to a major shift in consumer preferences for the purchase of travel bags and other luggage bags through e-commerce platforms, such as Amazon, eBay, etc. This can be regarded as the prime factor driving the rapid growth of the online store segment.
The business bags segment is gaining significant traction in the market studied, due to increasing business travel worldwide, and economic improvements in the developing markets.
In price-sensitive markets, such as some emerging economies across Asia-Pacific and Latin America, the easy availability of cheaper substitutes/counterfeit products as compared to branded products is hindering the growth of the luggage market. Moreover, the market studied is dominated by unorganized players with low priced products.
