Luxury market trends
Deloitte has identified two key interconnected trends that we believe will characterise the luxury goods markets in 2017:
- From physical products to digital experiential
the essence of luxury is changing from an emphasis on the
physical to a focus on the experiential and how luxury
makes you feel. However premium quality remains a ‘must
have’ and consumers retain a keen eye for craftsmanship
and hand-made products.
- From standardisation to personalisation
expansion through globalisation necessitated a one-size-fits-all
approach. However, changing luxury shopper behaviour
demands a different, more personalised response.
Global economic outlook
The economic environment for luxury brands continues to be challenging, with slow growth in major developed economies, high levels of debt in emerging markets, deflation or low inflation in rich countries, a protectionist backlash against globalisation, troubled credit markets in a number of countries, and worsening demographics in many. Yet despite the economic headwinds, the sector is resilient and consumers are still making luxury purchases, especially in emerging markets.
Key findings from the report include:
- Luxury goods sales growth is accelerated by currency volatility – sales for the world's 100 largest luxury goods companies grew by more than 3 percentage points in FY2015. Most currencies weakened significantly against the US dollar, which benefited many multinational companies based in other regions who experienced favorable currency effects, driving up reported sales.
- Italy is once again the leading luxury goods country in terms of number of companies, while France has the highest share of sales.
- Multiple luxury goods companies double sales growth and lead profitability, while bags and accessories continues to be the fastest growth sector.
