Analysis & Comments

  • The McKinsey annual luxury survey has been highlighting for a number of years now the rising importance of the Chinese consumer to the luxury sector. The China luxury report 2019 is showing a continuation of this trend, but with some very interesting demographic and technological overlays.
  • Overall, McKinsey expects Chinese luxury spend, driven in a large part by younger consumers, to grow at 6% pa out to 2025, compared with only 2% in the rest of the world.
  • Unlike many more traditional western consumers, younger Chinese as a group are more focused on luxury as aspirational rather than a reflection of heritage. To tap into this requires a slightly different approach, exclusively matters butin a more personalised & “modern” manner.
  • In addition, the younger Chinese consumer is much more digitally focused. This is again in contrast to the traditional markets, where digital is more advertising & image building than marketing.
