Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing fine arts auction house sales worldwide.

Countries, such as the US and the UK, have the most number of auction houses globally. Other fine arts products include works on paper and antiques, paintings, ancient art, and La haute joaillerie.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing e-commerce fine arts sales. In 2016, online art sales reached more than $3.5 billion and increased by more than 15% during 2015-2016, which represents more than 5% of the global fine arts market share. The global online fine arts market is expected to reach more than $9 billion by 2020.

In 2016, more than 40% of fine arts visitor traffic and more than 20% of bids came through mobile devices. More than 30% of the buyers used tablets and laptops to place their orders.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High operational cost and competitive pricing. With the surge in demand for specialized professional supply chain solutions and value-added services (VAS) in the global fine arts logistics market, the competitiveness in the fine arts logistics industry is increasing in terms of the pricing of services. Logistics service providers in the global fine arts logistics market are under constant pressure from customers, such as fine arts dealers, galleries, and museums, to keep the prices low. Due to the continuous variation in fuel prices, profits from fixed-term contracts with customers have reduced. As a result, fine arts logistics customers demand lower rates while renewing contracts.
