India Handicrafts Market to Exhibit a CAGR of 7.8% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Handicraft Products

Published on Oct 17, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "India Handicrafts Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the India handicrafts market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.8% during 2022-2027. Handicrafts are handmade goods crafted using simple tools instead of machines and require considerable hand-eye coordination and intense concentration. They represent the culture and customs of India. Each handcrafted product is unique, exhibits distinct qualities, and is perceived as a status symbol for consumers since it reflects the essence of the vibrant art and culture of the country. It requires low capital investments, offers employment opportunities to artisans, and acts as a prominent medium for foreign exchange revenue. Besides this, handicraft products require low energy, unlike machine-made products involving electricity utilization. Due to the abovementioned factors, handicraft products play a vital role in the overall growth of the Indian economy.

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.
