Our closets now hold more items than ever before. Though a growing number of us are trying to cut back.

Can we thank the famed KonMari method of organising for this, or perhaps the booming $24billion 'Resale Market’?

Whatever the cause, the benefits of repurposing/buying used clothing – reduced waste, cheaper items, more sustainable living - is evident in the masses adopting this lifestyle. Are some countries more interested in this emerging market than others, then?

Utilising Ahref’s Keyword Explorer, online marketplace OnBuy.com has obtained the search volumes for terms related to “second-hand/resale”*, for 13 different countries around the world, to identify who shows the greatest interest.

Which countries seek second-hand the most?

With a staggering collective 955,000 searches per month, perhaps given its size, it is unsurprising that the USA is the most curious about recycling their used clothes and products.

In second place is Germany – with 338,640 unique searches per month, the large and diverse nation is evidently passionate towards owning something unique; either that or finding a bargain. Specifically, the German term flohmarkt (flea market) accounted for 193,000 of this total.

Of particular interest too, are France and Italy. Renowned for high-end/luxury brands, surprisingly they place in fifth and sixth respectively, with 42,560 and 34,110 monthly searches for second-hand.

And with the fewest monthly searches (6,750), New Zealand appears the least interested in thrifting and second-hand clothes purchases.

Please refer to the table below for the remaining countries:

Flea markets near me?

On top of general interest in resale, many are looking to take the next step.

OnBuy also obtained search volumes for terms related to second-hand shops/flea markets “near me” – where individuals intend to visit one.
