A modest rise in revenues at 4.5% value CAGR has been foreseen for the art supplies market during the period of forecast, 2018 to 2028. Despite consolidation among retailers that cater creative types, specialty arts chains are discerned to be more insulated from e-commerce, compared to other sales platforms in the retail sector.
Tangibility of online channel in the art supplies market has increased recently, making it second leading sales conversion platform for art supplies. However, pervasive consumer inclination toward shop-in store preferences has retained preeminence of stationary shops in the art supplies market, and the status quo will persist in the near future.
While demand for art supplies has been sustained by educational institutes, hobbyists, and professional artists, household spending on discretionary products has been subjugated in light of weak consumer sentiment. According to Fact.MR study, volume sales of art supplies in school will remain twice as that in residences during the period of forecast.

A handmade movement has emerged as a consequence, which in turn has been complementing sales of art supplies. The trend will further gain momentum, particularly aligning with consumer focus toward creative outlets and do-it-yourself approach. Social networks apropos of art and craft will also observe a spiraling rise, paving avenues for consumers to socialize and pursue art-related hobbies simultaneously," according to a lead analyst, Fact.MR.

However, incontestable sales proliferation of pencils and colors have meant that, sales of pens will be eclipsed by that of the former art supplies through 2028.
A key trend impact sales of art supplies worldwide is adult coloring, which is indicative of consumers' requirement for focusing on something creative and leveraging their leisure time.
