Executive summary

The Handbag, Luggage and Accessory Stores industry includes specialty retail stores that primarily sell fashion accessories, such as handbags, costume jewelry, hats and small leather accessories. The industry also includes stores that primarily sell suitcases, backpacks and other kinds of luggage. Over the five years to 2022, this industry has fared well, particularly as per capita disposable income increased, granting higher purchasing power to key downstream markets. Additionally, the number of trips, both foreign and domestic, taken by US residents exhibited strong growth in the first half of the period, driving demand for luggage items. However, sharp declines in spending and travel amid the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic have pressured key markets. To the industry's benefit, demand is expected to bounce back in 2021 and 2022 due to the mass immunization efforts. Consequently, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to increase at an annualized rate of 4.7% to $21.0 billion over the five years to 2022, benefiting from an anticipated 16.9% increase in 2022 alone as the industry recovers from the pandemic and easing regulations.

The dollar figures in the Key Statistics table, including forecasts, are adjusted for inflation using the current year (i.e. year published) as the base year. This removes the impact of changes in the purchasing power of the dollar, leaving only the "real" growth or decline in industry metrics. The inflation adjustments in IBISWorld’s reports are made using the US Bureau of Economic Analysis’ implicit GDP price deflator.

Despite growth, industry revenue has been pressured by heightened levels of competition. The industry competes with a host of external operators, including discount retailers, outlet stores, department stores and internet retailers.
In particular, online retailers have represented a mounting threat to the industry's growth, especially as consumers become more comfortable conducting high-value transactions online. Additionally, online retailers generally offer lower prices than brick-and-mortar retailers because they incur lower overhead costs. Nevertheless, consolidation in the industry has lowered operating costs, bolstering industry profit despite pandemic-related declines in 2020.
