Growing Number of Fine Art Collectors Boosting the Fine Art Logistics Market Growth

The rising value of art has increased the demand for specialized logistics services to ensure that it is transported and stored safely. Art collectors are willing to pay for these services. With collectors and galleries buying and selling art worldwide, there is a growing need for logistics services that can handle the complex transportation of art across borders. Art collectors are often involved in this process, as they might need to move their collections to new locations or exhibitions. In February 2023, according to the India Art Fair director, the scale and diversity of the art reflect the expansion of the contemporary and modern fine art logistics market across India and South Asian countries.

Private art collectors often expect their art to be handled with the greatest care while being transported in a climate-controlled environment. This demand for high-quality service has led to the development of specialized fine art logistics companies that can meet the needs of these collectors. In November 2022, the auction of the private art collection of Paul Allen, the late Microsoft co-founder, in New York displayed various items priced at more than US$ 1.5 billion. According to the New York Times, it was the biggest sale in auction history as numerous individual pieces sold for more than US$ 100 million each. The highest-priced item from the sale was Georges Seurat's "Les Poseuses, Ensemble (Petite version)," which was sold for US$ 149 million. Thus, the growing interest in private art collections among fine art collectors is boosting the adoption of good art logistic services for shipment and delivery, which is driving the fine art logistics market growth.
