Online Antiques & Collectibles Sales
The Online Antiques and Collectibles Sales industry has continued to flourish over the past five years, largely due to the growing ubiquity of online shopping. Antiques and collectibles are timeless yet discretionary items, making this industry highly sensitive to changes in disposable income.

The growth of this relatively new industry has coincided with the increasing prevalence of internet access, particularly broadband. In the coming years, the Online Antiques and Collectibles Sales industry will attract a larger customer market as more households buy industry products electronically and consumers have more income to spend on luxuries. Positive income and consumer spending growth will drive demand for discretionary products.
