Restraining Factor

Falling Household Incomes amid COVID-19 to Disrupt Market Growth Prospects

The COVID-19 pandemic, while causing an unprecedented downturn in national economies, has delivered even more severe setbacks to individual household incomes. According to the World Bank’s high-frequency monitoring phone surveys, on average, 36% of those working prior to the pandemic outbreak were without a job in the April-July period, while 62% of households reported a reduction in total income. In India, to take a country-specific example, a decline of 5.4% in per capita income is envisaged, according to a report released by the State Bank of India, the country’s top lender. In such dire circumstances, the demand for dispensable consumer goods, such as handbags, is likely to diminish substantially. This is reflected in the 2020 values of the global market, with its CAGR dropping by 25.6% and its size expected to reach USD 49.63 billion in 2021.
