Handbag, Luggage & Accessory Stores in the US

The Handbag, Luggage and Accessory industry has fared well as revitalized demand for fashion accessories and improved consumer confidence levels have driven robust growth in recent years. Operators have increasingly focused on catering to aspirational luxury shoppers who indulge in purchasing modern luxury items with lower price tags. In the next five years, rising disposable income and increased travel frequency are expected to drive strong sales for industry products. However, competition from alternative accessory retailers will potentially constrain industry performance.

This industry includes specialty retailers that primarily sell handbags, luggage, costume jewelry and clothing accessories, such as hats, wallets and neckwear. Stores in this industry may also sell apparel or footwear, but sales from these products are not included in the industry. The industry does not include department stores or mass merchandisers that sell similar items. In addition, the industry does not include specialty retailers that primarily sell lingerie or swimwear.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
