About the Industry:
The substantial boom in the travel and tourism sector (including medical tourism) fosters the demand for various types of travel bags. The robust movement of business travelers further fuels the requirement of travel bags especially backpacks and trolleys.
The rise in travel and tourism has intensified the demand for travel bags. Besides, an increase in urbanization, changes in lifestyle, and demand for innovative products such as polycarbonated luggage is further expected to boost the growth of the global travel bags market between 2017 and 2023. An increase in purchasing power of middle-class households especially in the developing regions is anticipated to create more demand for premium and fashionable travel bags. The advancement in technology such as the development of smart luggage with GPS system tracker is also projected to expand the growth of the overall market during the forecast period (2017–2023).
The global travel bags market is segmented based on material into hard side and soft side. The market is also divided by luggage type into duffle, trolley, and backpacks. The market is further sub-divided by different price ranges, which include premium, medium-range, and low range and by distribution channel into supermarket/hypermarket, specialty stores, factory outlets, online stores, and others. Based on region, the market is categorized across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Indian Luggage Industry: During the year 19-20, the luggage industry has witnessed positive growth across all price points and all product categories, although growth was slower than previous years, due to the overall slowdown in the Indian economy. All channels witnessed growth during the financial year under review. Ecommerce witnessed the strongest growth amongst all channels, suggesting that Indian consumers are beginning to prefer shopping from home compared to visiting markets, a trend which will only increase due to Covid-19.

India has had a soft spot for cricket since it was first introduced and the bond has only intensified over time. Initiatives like the Indian Premier League, a professional Twenty20 cricket league in India where eight teams representing eight different cities in India, have fueled the craze further. Every year, the IPL season brings with it a wave of euphoria and leaves us with enough memories that last us until it returns next year.
The Chennai Super Kings, a franchise cricket team based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, which plays in the Indian Premier League is captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni and coached by Stephen Fleming. Founded in 2008, the team plays its home matches at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Super Kings have rightfully won the IPL title thrice (in 2010, 2011, and 2018), and have the best win percentage among all teams in the IPL (61.28). They have also won the Champions League Twenty20 in 2010 and 2014. They are the only IPL team to qualify for the playoff stage in each edition of their appearance in the league and are the second-most valuable IPL franchise, after Mumbai Indians.
