Over the years, the figures show a steady rise in the genre's total sales revenue, which skyrocketed from €13.7M in 2001 to €92.1M in 2014. The average sale price of a lot sold at auction rose accordingly, from €20,828 in 2001 to €30,000 in early 2012. The report aslo indicates an increase in the number of unsold lots, noting that "over fifteen years, the rise in prices has led to a more discerning collector profile". It also reveals that African objects are the ones most prized by collectors, ahead of those from Oceania. Nevertheless, this genre only represents 0.68% of the total auction house market. There is excellent news for France, too; the country retains its title as the global capital of tribal art, beating New York in terms of not only sales revenue but also sheer sales volumes.
