An improvement in economic conditions and an increase in disposable income are the major factors driving the growth of the ride-on luggage market. Following the European and Chinese economic crises in 2009, the global economy came to a halt. The strong recovery from the crisis, on the other hand, resulted in significant economic growth, particularly in developing economies, as well as an increase in disposable income among middle-income groups. Furthermore, disposable income in North America and Asia-Pacific has increased rapidly, acting as a major driver of the Ride-on Luggage industry growth as middle- and high-income urban consumers have shifted their purchasing habits from essential to premium goods and services.

Changes in lifestyle, increased tourism promotion, and improved transportation accessibility are all factors that contribute to the growth of the travel and tourism industry. Furthermore, continuous development in the travel and tourism industry, as well as integration of various segments such as hospitality and infrastructure with government initiatives accelerates the growth of the global travel and tourism industry.

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are used in motorized ride-on luggage. Lithium-ion batteries can explode in low-pressure environments, making them dangerous on flights. Although the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) of the U.S. allows certain recognized brands of motorized luggage on airlines, many airports and flight regulatory authorities around the world continue to prohibit the transport of battery-powered luggage. This is especially common in developing countries around the world, where authorities must deal with consumer inadequacy in the handling of electronic equipment while traveling. Electronic luggage restrictions in various parts of the world discourage consumers from purchasing motorized ride-on luggage, which has a negative impact on the ride-on luggage market.
