Inside India’s High Growth Luxury Market

India’s luxury goods market has been growing by more than US$255 million a year in absolute terms, on a par with the United Arab Emirates and considerably stronger than Singapore and Australia.

All luxury categories witnessed a big rise in demand with double-digit growth across the whole of the 2008-2013 review period. This was fuelled mainly by a mushrooming urban middle class with a penchant for Western brands.

Growth expectations among the world’s biggest luxury goods manufacturers are highly optimistic. This is a country, after all, where as many as one million young adults are entering the job market every month and it offers a potentially unrivalled demographic dividend.

There are, however, growing signs that the wheels are slowing on India’s hitherto unstoppable luxury goods growth surge. The combined effects of a cooling economy, rising prices and lacklustre job creation are causing middle-income consumers in particular to tighten their belts.

Winners and Losers in Personal Accessories

Luggage, mid-priced watches and real jewellery will be the highest growing personal accessories categories in 2014, which positions companies such as Pandora, Samsonite and Chow Tai Fook for ongoing success in the coming years. Chinese jewellery manufacturer Chow Thai Fook will fair the best, with sales expected to cross the US$ 10 billion dollar mark in 2014. Leading luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Coach suffered in 2013 and will continue to suffer in 2014 due to consumer's reluctance to spend on big ticket items.

Who is Winning the Global Battle for Accessories Sales?

Sulabh MadhwalAnalyst Insight by Sulabh Madhwal - Personal Accessories and Eyewear Analyst

View Sulabh Madhwal's profile on LinkedIn

LVMH, Richemont and Swatch Group continue to lead overall personal accessories, but the dynamics are changing in individual categories. We discuss the state of global competition as seen through the new edition of personal accessories published on 11 August 2014.

Top Three Lose Ground in Bags and Luggage

The respective market shares for LVMH, Kering (formerly PPR) and Coach all declined between 2012 and 2013. This was not only due to the slowing demand for luxury brands across the world, but also the rise of leading competitors such as Michael Kors, Samsonite and Prada Group.

Global value sales for bags and luggage will grow at a CAGR of 4% over 2014-2019, with luggage and business bags spearheading growth. Although handbags will remain by far the biggest category in 2019, the growth potential for luggage and business bags is likely to inspire several marketing efforts targeted at the male population.

Moderated by Yvonne Kok, Head of Industry Research

Wearable devices, such as the Nike Fuel Band and the Samsung Galaxy Gear are manufacturer driven products that do not yet address any major functions better than a smartphone. So far, only fitness tracking devices are driving sales in the category as they serve a practical and motivational purpose. Other devices such as the Galaxy Gear suffer from poor aesthetics and bulky design. Until Apple releases its highly anticipated watch, which has the potential to disrupt the industry in the same way that the iPhone did, many manufacturers of electronics and watches are adapting a wait-and-see approach to wearable devices.

Michael Kors’ Marketing Strategy Pays Off

Euroasia_Chloe.Wu_LThumbWith Chloe Wu, Personal Accessories & Eyewear Industry Analyst

Michael Kors is investing heavily in marketing its new diffusion line and as a result, consumers are associating the company as a lifestyle brand in line with Coach and Tory Birch. The company is also using social media as a way to use consumers to market its brands. It has a blog site called MK Timeless where consumers can upload pictures of their Michael Kors watches and a campaign called Watch Hunger Stop where the company donates money to the World Food Program for every 100 series timepiece purchased. These marketing strategies have paid off for the company with strong brand equity.

Tiffany & Co: At What Point Does Affordable Luxury Prove Costly?

Rob WalkerAnalyst Insight by Rob Walker - Contributing Analyst

View Rob Walker's profile on LinkedIn

When a luxury brand renowned for high-end products takes a big chunk of its portfolio downmarket, there are risks. The biggest is that its prestigious image becomes diluted and affluent consumers drift away. Tough times call for bold decisions, though. Rewind a year and a half and US luxury jeweller Tiffany & Co found itself in choppy waters. Sales were sinking like a stone in its core home market, and in its New York flagship especially. Revenue in Europe and Asia Pacific was in freefall too.

In a bid to turn things around, Tiffany ramped up its participation in affordable luxury. At its famous New York flagship on Fifth Avenue, well-heeled shoppers could still spend upwards of US$50,000 on a piece of statement jewellery, or US$5-10,000 on a piece of fine jewellery. But, low-priced silver jewellery, typically costing less than US$500 a piece – and led by a new range branded as the Atlas collection – began to grow in visibility. Few retailers anywhere in the world offered products covering such a cavernous price spectrum.

Luxury Goods Companies should Target Latin America through Social Media


Latin America is one of the fastest growing regions in the world for internet users, and luxury brands looking to target consumers in the region should use social media for interaction. Countries like Brazil and Mexico offer the largest opportunities for luxury players, but e-commerce is on the rise in smaller countries such as Chile, Peru and Colombia, all of which are showing demand for luxury goods.
