Duty Free Retailing in Asia-Pacific, 2015–2020; Market Dynamics, Retail Trends, and Competitive Landscape

Summary

Asia-Pacific duty free retail market recorded CAGR of 9.4% during 2010–2015 driven by increase in Chinese duty free spending and expansion of duty free retail space. Growing tourism, expansion of off-airport duty free locations, rising online duty free sales are key factors that will positively influence the regional duty free sales. However, devaluation of Chinese Yuan will reduce purchasing power of high spending Chinese duty free shoppers. To entice this cohort, majority of the Asian countries are easing their visa policies, which have previously fueled tourism and thus spending in Japan and South Korea. Duty free operators are also seeking growth in new markets as competition in home market intensifies with new airport and downtown duty free locations.
