Some of the handicraft products include handloom, jewellery, apparel, paintings, paper products and leather products.
On account of increasing interest of the global population in art and culture, the global handicrafts market is witnessing a healthy growth. Soaring demand for luxury home décor products due to escalating disposable incomes and willingness of the consumers to pay premium prices for unique and antique handicrafts is contributing to the development of the market.

From the manufacturers’ point of view, a strong penetration of e-commerce, particularly in the emerging regions, has produced numerous remunerative opportunities for investors of the handicrafts market. Small initial investments, which include setup cost, raw materials, labour and transportation expenditure, is facilitating a rise in the demand for handicrafts. Further, flourishing international and domestic tourism is catalysing the growth of the market across the globe. This coupled with rising collaborations between artisans and designers is fuelling the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to exceed US$ 984 Billion by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of more than 11% during 2018-2023.
