Travel Goods Association Releases State of the U.S. Travel Goods Market 2002-2013: Selling Less for More [FULL STORY]
Travel goods sales fell by volume in 2013, but consumers were willing to pay more for those fewer products, leading to a rise in sales by value, according to a new report released by the Travel Goods Association (TGA). Travel goods are defined as luggage, backpacks, travel/sports bags, business cases/computer bags, handbags, personal leather goods, and luggage locks. TGA estimates that sales of travel goods in 2013 surpassed pre-recession levels, with U.S. consumers spending an estimated $29.5 billion in 2013 on travel goods, a rise of 17.2% from 2012.
