The painting segment dominated the online art market, says Hexa Research
The painting segment dominated the market in 2016 and is expected to maintain its position over the forecast period. Paintings are the favorite art piece preferred by the customers to buy as they attract a lot of attention and are difficult to be understood at times.
The U.S. customers prefer to buy paintings online as most of the galleries are not well equipped with all the expensive original art work. Most of the art trade happen online or in art fairs on account of the diminishing use of physical space to display paintings. It is easier to showcase and display paintings on an online platform than in an art gallery.
There is also a huge number of audience online which gets attracted by the original art works and get tempted to buy them. One of the major advantages of online art purchasing is that it saves a lot of time as well as the travelling cost of the customers and lets them do the purchasing by just clicking a single button owing to which there is a rise in the online sales of the art works by the U.S. customers.
It saves a lot of time and energy in their hectic busy routines. The art works are majorly purchased by the domestic as well as foreign customers. The maximum revenue share is generated by the purchasing done by domestic clients such as individuals and small businesses, who are involved in reselling the paintings and sculptures.
