New luxury market research from Euromonitor International indicates that despite the global volatile economic outlook, the luxury goods market continues to prove resilient.

New Market Research Findings Include:

  • 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.
  • BRIC markets account for 11 percent of global luxury sales in 2012 by value, and by 2017, Euromonitor International expects their share to grow to 16 percent.
