The global backpack market size is projected to expand in a promising manner owing to the increasing interest in travel and recreational activities around the world, finds Fortune Business Insightsin its report, titled “Backpack Market, 2022-2029”.

The enthusiasm for traveling, especially among younger populations, is growing at a rapid pace, as evidenced by data released by international organizations. For example, according to the UN World Travel Organization (UNWTO), in 2019, there were 1.5 billion international tourist arrivals. This trend is underpinned by increasing disposable incomes, the proliferation of low-cost carriers in developing economies, and rising investments by governments in the development of tourist spots and cities. A typical feature associated with travel and tourism activities is the luggage that needs to be carried around, which contains essential supplies for such activities. Backpacks are probably the most common luggage item that travelers have with them as they are easy to carry and can withstand large weights. Thus, as the travel and tourism industry continues to grow, the demand for small-size baggage items is likely to skyrocket in the coming years.

COVID-19 Impact:

The unprecedented occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced various educational institutions and tourism places to shut down their operations for infection control purposes. For example, the US Travel Association estimates the coronavirus-induced decline in travel has cost the US $1.1 trillion in economic output. The devastation thus caused by COVID-19 will inevitably hamper the backpack market growth as well, since the demand for luggage items will remain diminished. Furthermore, with travel and trade bans still in place, supply chains in the luggage industry have been hit severely, affecting manufacturing and distribution activities.
