Luxury Handbag Market – Snapshot

Luxury handbags are an important accessory in day to day life. Luxury handbags include shoulder bags, satchel bags, handheld bags, sling bags, tote bags, hobo bags, backpacks, wallets, and others. These bags are used by both men and women.

The luxury handbag market has been significantly impacted since the number of buying options for consumers is rising. Rise of internet and social media such as Facebook and Instagram has helped buyers understand their products and methods to buy them. Additionally, multi-brand retail outlets help in the expansion of infrastructure and drive the economy. They also help small retailers sell their products to large retailers. The growing population of working women has driven the demand for luxury handbags. Luxury handbag manufacturers are developing the latest women’s handbags that are more functional, fortified with laptop sleeves, key holders, mobile holders, etc. and offer the feel of luxury, without compromising on quality. However, availability of counterfeit and copy of the original products is one of the key factors hindering the luxury handbags market. Local players copy branded luxury handbags and sell them at a premium price. Furthermore, demand for male luxury handbags is growing as men have started identifying luxury handbags as a lifestyle product rather than a functional product.

Based on distribution channel, the luxury handbag market is dominated by the offline channel as the user can gauge the quality of the product by touch, while in online channels the user cannot touch the product. However, in the coming years, the online channel is projected to grow at a faster rate with the growth of internet and social surfing.

Based on geography, the luxury handbag market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Among all the regions, in terms of revenue, Europe held the major market share, accounting for around 31.8% in 2016, followed by Asia Pacific. This trend is anticipated to continue in terms of revenue generation over the estimated period. However, the market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast years.

Asia Pacific and Europe appeared to be the most attractive markets for luxury handbags particularly in hobo bags, sling bags, and handheld bags.

Besides, several celebrities have embraced luxury handbag brands to create a stir across the global market.
