Insight Report: The Rise of Luxury Goods in Emerging Cities 2019

Synopsis

This report adopts a city-focused approach and looks at the market growth potential of 10 emerging cities for luxury brand expansion, as driven by the strong growth of HNWIs and UHNWIs living in cities, urbanization, the emerging middle class, and promising economic outlook.

It provides an in-depth market analysis of 10 selected emerging cities as potential markets for luxury brands: they are Shanghai, Mumbai, Mexico City, Istanbul, Bangkok, Tel Aviv, Jakarta, Kula Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City and Lagos. The report first looks at the significance of the selected cities, analyzes demand, and identifies key market players. This is followed by an in-depth analysis of key trends and challenges facing the 10 cities studied.

The report also highlights strategies adopted by luxury brands to convey a consistent prestige brand experience, while adapting to local demand.

Summary

The world economy is experiencing a strong shift towards emerging markets, and the luxury industry is no exception. Driven by a strong desire to show off financial stability and success, luxury brands and wealth in emerging markets have become inseparable. The luxury market size of the 10 selected cities was estimated at US$29.41 billion in 2014.
