  48. 48. •Challenges faced by Luxury Retail Market.
  49. 49. 1. Idiosyncratic Market • India is truly an idiosyncratic market for a vast array of social, economical, cultural, and political reasons. Even such global giants as Coca-Cola and GM did not meet with success when they entered this market, due largely to a lack of understanding about Indian emotions, habits, and lifestyles.
  50. 50. 2.Luxury infrastructure still a constraint • The luxury goods category is still fragmented and only a few international players have entered India. However, these luxury players are already facing problems in terms of a lack of luxury infrastructure in India, as luxury shopping centres are restricted to major cities and only a small number of players have entered the country. As more luxury players enter India, limited infrastructure could be a major constraint. The luxury players that are present are already targeting high-end shopping streets in major cities to overcome a lack of luxury shopping centres.
  51. 51. 3. Luxury goods restricted to major cities of India • Most of the larger brands are present in metro cities. • But there is huge opportunity avaialable in tier 2 and tier 3 city market, where brands can extend their market and manage their portfolio accoriding to spending limit and consumer tastes.
  52. 52. 4. Cost-conscious mindset of buyer • Closet consumers-People who look at the cost and value even when shopping for luxury products. • The inner conflict between a middle class mindset and the globally rich income level, between conspicuous consumption and a level of luxury which is a reward for hard work shapes what we call the closet consumer,"
  53. 53. Internet retailing emerges as a sales channel • Global luxury brand operators are targeting internet retailing as a future emerging channel for their brands. Rising rentals and operating costs are major factors, while the need for well-trained staff to cater to high net worth individuals is another factor that makes internet retailing more attractive for players. Luxury goods players can also offer discounts and promotional campaigns limited to internet retailing channels to promote purchases.
  54. 54. Sahara entering into Luxury market. • Sahara Group, the embattled Lucknow-based conglomerate, plans to launch an Indian luxury chain to sell 'Made • in India' luxury goods in international markets such as the US and the UK. “The focus is to create the first Indian premium • luxury brand, which will expose the global consumer to India as never seen before,” said Chandni Roy, who is • spearheading the initiative to open luxury lifestyle stores across the globe (Rathore, 2013).
  55. 55. Conclusion • India is one of the growing market for Luxury retail in India that recently accounts for only 1-2 % of total luxury retail market of world. • It is a big opportunity for brands to target this untapped market with supportive changing taste for Luxury brand as well as rising income.
