The slowdown was partly attributable to a weaker economic growth in China, as well as the growing trend of shopping luxury goods abroad. Besides that, the recent ban on spending public funds on luxury items for gifting might also have a negative impact on luxury sales in China. Moreover, the personal luxury goods market in China is anticipated to reach around EUR 18 Billion till 2017 with a CAGR of more than 6% during 2013-17. In 2012, it is estimated that overseas consumption of luxury goods accounted for around 60% of the total Chinese luxury spending, with watches, jewelry and leather goods winning the top spots. In domestic market, among the major product categories, the y-oy growth rates of cosmetics and personal care products, women’s wear and menswear were more resilient in 2012. Watches and jewelry, on the other hand, saw a notable growth deceleration in 2012 which is expected to decline further on the account high taxes. Source: RNCOS China Luxury Goods
  4. 4. Opportunities & Challenges Opportunities • Rising number of affluent consumers which are just attaining middle-class status is increasing at an explosive rate as incomes head upward. • Figure-1: Per Head Personal Disposable Income (US$), 2010-2013 & 2017 CAGR 14.22% 1890 2010 2320 2011 2690 2012 5310 3120 2013e 2017f Source: EIU • Ongoing urbanization and rising luxury demand in smaller cities. • Opportunities due to economic slowdown in European countries as many luxury brands are now focusing on Asian market (especially China) to compensate for the loss. • A surge in the number of credit card users is likely to stimulate immediate consumption of luxury goods. According to China Banking Association, in 2011, China’s credit card transactions totaled CNY 7.75 Trillion, up 48% yoy; the number of credit cards issued was 285 Million, up by 24.3% yoy. MasterCard forecasted the number of credit cards in China to reach 900 Million by 2020. China Luxury Goods
  5. 5. Challenges • As part of the anti-corruption campaign, in July 2012, the State Council promulgated the Regulations on the Affairs and Administration of the Government Agencies effective 1 October 2012. According to the regulations, government agencies are prohibited from purchasing luxury goods. • The high costs of luxury goods in China is mainly due to stiff government taxes, which leds the consumner to make purchases abroad. Table-1: Consumption tax and import tariff on selected luxury products (2012) Category Cosmetics Jewelry and precious stone Luxury watches Consumption tax 30% 5%-10% 20% Import tariff 6.5%-150% 0%-130% 11%-100% Source: China Customs • Digitally challenged online retailing market is also a challenge to the luxury market in the country as over two-thirds of Chinese use the internet to research brands, but most luxury firms have pitiful digital strategies. • Increasingly sophisticated consumers shifting from overexposed logo brands to absolute quality products.

  6. 6. Future Outlook In future, despite the cooling in the growth rate of Chinese luxury spending, the demand of luxury goods is anticipated to remain robust on the back of rising number of very wealthy consumers, who have a marked tendency to trade up to more expensive and more luxurious products. At the same time, new entrants into the luxury category which are just attaining middle-class status are also increasing at an explosive rate as incomes head upward. Further, a rapidly-growing share of Chinese luxury shoppers are doing their purchasing abroad which is expected to rise in future. Although Hong Kong and Macau rank among their favored shopping destinations, now Europe is also rising quickly in popularity. Increasing foreign travel by Chinese is one important reason for this trend; so is the fact that luxury goods are not nearly as expensive overseas as they are in the Mainland, where the government imposes stiff taxes on such goods. To overcome this problem, the government of China is going to soon slash import duties on opulent items to encourage wealthy local shoppers to buy more pricey cosmetics, watches and liquor. The move will encourage shoppers to shop more in the domestic market than to abroad. China Luxury Goods
  7. 7. Key Players China’s luxury goods market is largely dominated by foreign players. Most Chinese luxury consumers tend to favor foreign brands that have long history and unique brand heritage. To further expand their brand portfolio and increase their presence in the China market, some foreign luxury retailers are looking for opportunities to invest in local luxury companies that have strong identity and growth potential. For instance, in December 2012, French luxury group, PPR acquired a majority stake in Qeelin, a Chinese fine jewelry brand. And earlier in February 2012, L Capital Asia, a private equity fund financed by the French luxury giant LVMH, acquired a 10% stake in Ochirly, one of the top fashion brands in China. L Capital Asia also co-invested with the Chinese apparel company Xin Hee Co., Ltd. in a mid-priced apparel brand QDA, and its first store was opened in Beijing in March 2013.
