Impact of COVID-19 on the Bookends Market

Nowadays, people prefer staying indoors to avoid coronavirus infection. This factor has accelerated the household population’s demand for comic book reading, video gaming, and other indoor leisure activities and increased the bookend product revenues during the pandemic.

Analysis By Material Type

The marble sector is expected to hold a leading share of the worldwide bookends market because of its solid structure in retaining heavy-weight books without breaking. Furthermore, the growing popularity of marble material-based, sculpture-style book holders is further driving the marble segmental growth. Besides, the marble material-based bookends enhance the aesthetics of a study table and are highly resistant to the surrounding atmosphere. This factor results in significant worldwide population demand for marble-based bookends.

Analysis By End-user

The individual segment is anticipated to hold a leading share of the global bookends market owing to the increasing number of book readers using bookend products at their homes. Nowadays, book readers use bookends and bookshelves to keep reading materials in their living spaces. This factor results in significant household population demand for bookend products and makes the individuals segment generate considerable product revenues. Besides, evolving home remodeling & renovation trends are further accelerating the product demand among households.

The offline segment is expected to exhibit the largest share of the worldwide bookends market since users can flexibly buy bookends from the set of other products as per their requirements from the physical stores. The convenience of instantly picking up such products and trying them out by comparing such products with multiple bookends retailers stimulates the offline distribution channel to hold a major share.
