The RealReal, Inc. (REAL)
First Day Turnover
The RealReal is the world’s largest online marketplace for authenticated, consigned luxury goods. We are revolutionizing luxury resale by providing an end-to-end service that unlocks supply from consignors and creates a trusted, curated online marketplace for buyers globally.
Over the past eight years, we have cultivated a loyal and engaged consignor and buyer base through continuous investment in our technology platform, logistics infrastructure and people. We aggregate and curate unique, pre-owned luxury supply that is exclusive to The RealReal across multiple categories, including women’s, men’s, kids’, jewelry and watches, and home and art. We have built a vibrant online marketplace that we believe expands the overall luxury market, promotes the recirculation of luxury goods and contributes to a more sustainable world.
We participate in the large and growing personal luxury goods market, which was estimated to reach $294 billion in 2018, and is expected to grow to between $362 and $412 billion in 2025, according to Bain. Luxury goods retain value over time as a result of their enduring desirability and durability, making them particularly well-suited for resale.
The total addressable market of luxury producers in U.S. homes potentially available for resale including men’s and women’s apparel, handbags, shoes, watches, jewelry, high-end furniture and art valued below $250,000 is approximately $198 billion, according to Frost & Sullivan. We are well positioned to benefit from several favorable industry and consumer trends, including the accelerating shift of luxury to digital channels, the increasing acceptance of resale, a rising value consciousness and a desire to embrace sustainability.
