Handicrafts refer to handmade products that are prepared using simple tools instead of machines. Some of the materials used to create decorative objects include sheet metal, wood, natural fibers, beads, stones, wrought iron, textiles, paper, and ceramics. Handicrafts represent the artistic side of traditions or cultures of a country or a region. Moreover, they play an important role in the economic development of a country as they provide employment opportunities and act as a prominent means for foreign exchange revenue. Apart from this, handicraft items are perceived as a status symbol due to their uniqueness and vibrant art.

Global Handicrafts Market Trends:
The proliferating online retail channels represent one of the key factors driving the market growth. An increasing number of e-commerce platforms are now supporting the sales of handicrafts as people are willing to expend on craft items. Furthermore, unlike machine-made products, preparing handicrafts requires low energy as it eliminates the usage of electricity or any other fuel. This associated convenience is stimulating the market growth significantly. Moreover, there is a rising demand for handmade decor items in both the residential and commercial sectors. In line with this, manufacturers are introducing modern designs to cater to the tastes and preferences of consumers, which, in turn, is acting as a growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, governments of several countries have taken initiatives to bolster their travel and tourism industry, while also investing in various programs encouraging handicraft production. Sincere efforts are being made, both at the government and non-governmental levels, to streamline the production process and mainstream operations, in an attempt to economically empower the ground-level workers. This, consequently, is attracting a large number of both domestic and international investors, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors impelling the market growth are inflating income levels and a shift toward ethnic decor items.
