Global Luxury-Sales Growth Slowing as High-End Consumers Cut Back

Monday, 28 October 2013 11:06 AM

A new study forecasts that global sales of luxury goods will grow just 2 percent in 2013 as purchases in China slow down.

The analysis presented by Bain & Company at an Italian industry gathering estimated 2013 luxury sales at 217 billion euros ($300 billion), up from 212 billion euros in 2012. That's a slowdown, however, from three years of double-digit growth.

Sales of luxury goods in China are forecast to grow by just 2.5 percent to 15.3 billion euros. The United States remains by far the largest luxury market, with sales of 62.5 billion euros, followed by Japan and Italy, which are both in contraction, and then China.
