Segmental Insights

Because of the growing influence of digital media and marketing on consumers, the online channel is expected to grow during the forecast period. Walmart, Amazon, and Alibaba, among other well-known online retailers, provide a wide range of options. Although hypermarkets, supermarkets, and other specialty and exclusive stores have an advantage over the online store, given the dire situation in which walking down a store and purchasing leather products has become nearly impossible, the online platform has risen to the top of the curve. During the forecast period, the fastest-growing segment is expected to be online retail. Some high-end leather goods are hard to come by and thus only available to a select group of customers. People who live in far-flung locations can easily purchase such items via the internet. Furthermore, the multi-brand online platform has the ability to reach out to time-crunched consumers who do not have the time to visit multiple mono-brand websites.
