The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Subscription Box Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global subscription box market size reached US$ 22.7 Billion in 2021. A subscription box is a service that involves the auto-delivery of niche products on a recurring basis. It contains a combination of products that are either customized as per consumer preference or randomly selected by the service provider. In recent years, subscription box has gained immense popularity among consumers due to its unique features, such as surprise or mystery items inside the box, aesthetic representation of the contents, and timely delivery of the package, on a monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly basis. Owing to these benefits, subscription box is extensively adopted across food and beverages (F&B), personal grooming and hygiene, health and fitness, childcare, apparel, books, and pet care industries.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
