A wallet is a small, flat case usually made of leather that can be used to carry personal items such as cash, debit and credit cards, and identification documents, photographs, transit pass, business cards, and other paper documents. Wallets are comfortable and convenient to carry and are also seen as a status symbol. Rising innovation in wallet design with new features is driving the growth of the wallet market across the globe.
Increasing popularity of leather products due to durability, and its fireproof, dustproof, and crack-proof features is surging the sale of wallets. Increasing disposable income and rising expenditure on luxury lifestyle products is playing a major role in driving the wallet market. Nowadays consumers are well versed about trends and fashion due to rising adoption of social media platforms. This is likely to enhance consumer preference for fashion related products. Increasing working population and growing fashion industry has also resulted in rising demand for wallets. Appetite for diverse wardrobe collections such as wallets of different colors and brands is another key driving factor for the wallet market. Growing popularity of retail stores and various online channels is also expected to drive the demand during the forecast period.
However, shifting consumer focus from conventional to digital technology is resulting in popularity of e-wallet which is hampering the growth of the wallet market. People now prefer e-cash instead of hard cash and digital documents in place of paper documents. Introduction of various substitutes such as small plastic case, clutches, handbags etc. is slowing down the growth of the wallet market. Moreover, the wallet market is affected due to reduction in raw material supply, as leather is available only in few regions of the world. High cost of leather wallets is expected to hamper the market in the coming years. Another major factor restricting the wallet market is the presence of a large number of unorganized wallet manufacturing companies.
