A study of the current and future shape of the luxury sector, from the impact of the strong dollar on global spending to the behavioural changes among young affluent Chinese consumers. The report examines the emerging markets of Sub-Saharan Africa, Vietnam, Iran and Mexico, and explores Geo-political Manufacturing as a means for luxury brands to make a statement.
We examine the challenges and opportunities of the Post-Brexit Landscape, show how luxury brands are embracing Meme Culture to capture the attention of Millennials, and see how and where the next wave of ultra-high-net-worth-individuals will be spending their wealth. We also trace the rise of online luxury resale, get to know Mexico’s Luxurians and reveal new developments in Luxury AI and high-tier commercial air travel.
