The market is projected to grow from USD 48.50 billion in 2021 to USD 72.61 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.

Wall arts are commonly used as decorative tools in households and museums. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, and other wall design tools enhance an indoor wall's beauty. Artworks’ ability to convey an inspirational and informative message mainly upsurges the utilization of such products among people. Nowadays, players are introducing various crafting events to showcase their artworks to the worldwide population and uplift their products’ sales. For instance, in March 2021, Saatchi Art, an online artwork marketplace, introduced its new virtual reality wall artwork fair to showcase its 75 artisan artworks to the global population.


Interior Decoration Trend Amid COVID-19 to Surge Product Demand

Due to COVID-19-related lockdown restrictions in many countries worldwide, people have been forced to stay indoors and prefer doing interior & decoration-related activities in their households. This will accelerate consumer demand for home decor-related products, driving the wall art market growth. Additionally, increased consumer preference for online shopping of the painting and drawing artworks amid the COVID-19 pandemic has uplifted the companies’ product revenues. For instance, in June 2020, Artfinder, a leading home crafting products maker, reported a 146% jump in its sales from home crafting products.

However, travel restrictions and social distancing norms amid the COVID-19 pandemic have lowered the number of auction home crafting events, impacting product demand worldwide.
