China Driving Growth of Global Luxury Sector
A growing Luxury market which is predicted to reach 212 billion Euros
by the end of 2012
According to the latest survey carried in October by Bain & Company on behalf of the Altagamma Foundation, the luxury market globally should rise by 10 to 12% in 2012 bringing figures to a total 212 billion euros or even higher to 215 billion.
These figures have surpassed the original predictions by Bain & Company which back in May stood at 6 to 7% for a total of 200 billion in 2012.
Asia and in particular China are the driving forces behind this exceptional growth. Globally, 25% of the purchases made in the Luxury sector have been made by the Chinese. They are ahead of the Europeans (24%), Americans (20%), Japanese (14%) and the rest of Asians (11%).
It is important to highlight that 40% of luxury purchases is done whilst travelling. Which is why this is the right environment for brands to reach this particular elite during their travels.
