The term luggage primarily involves the cases used to carry belongings

scale, many types of bags are included in the term luggage like, leather

briefcases, computer cases, carry-ons, garment bags, garment carriers,

kids luggage, totes, backpacks, duffel bags, motorcycle luggage, trolley

bags, vanity case, suitcases and handbags. The worldwide consumption of

luggage has been highly correlated to the travel industry. Since, both

business as well as leisure travelers cut down their spending on

traveling in 2009 due to the global economic downturn, the luggage

industry had also witnessed reduced demand during the period.

The US is the largest global luggage market. Europe and Japan follow as

the other significant markets for luggage, the three accounting for a

consolidated lion's share of the global market. In the coming years, the

Asia-Pacific market, driven by India, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Hong

Kong, among others, is expected to register high growth.

The rising trend of online retail sales is having a positive impact on

the luggage industry, since customers can easily get considerable amount

of information on the internet regarding the available options. Also,

the introduction of new and innovative designs of luggage allures people

to buy them.
