  • In 2012, the global luxury market is set to grow
    by more than seven percent and exceed US$ 302 billion. 
  • Valued at an estimated US$77 billion in 2012,
    the US market for luxury goods is by far the largest globally, 2.4 times higher
    in value than the second-ranked luxury market Japan, with an estimated 2012
    value of US$32 billion.
  • The four biggest markets – the US,
    Japan, Italy and France – collectively account for almost half of total luxury
    goods sales
    in value terms in 2012.

    percent of global luxury sales in 2012 by value, and by 2017, Euromonitor
