Luxury Goods Retailing in Europe, 2017-2022: Market & Category Expenditure and Forecasts, Trends, and Competitive Landscape


Uncertain global economy, terrorist attacks, currency fluctuations and dwindling international tourists led to a challenging environment for the luxury market over the past five years. Luxury sales registered a negative CAGR of 0.1% during the period 2012-2017 to reach US$104.7bn in 2017 from US$105.0bn in 2012.

However, sales are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during 2017-2022 to reach US$124.4 billion by 2022 against the backdrop of improving global economy, and an increasing number of international tourists, especially Chinese tourists. Additionally, new store openings, renovation of existing stores, online expansion and innovations in product offerings by major luxury retailers are the major growth drivers for the European luxury market.

Italy remained the largest market in 2017, accounting for 21% of the luxury goods retail sales in Europe. Luxury sales in the country are forecast to register a steady CAGR during 20170-2022. On the other hand, in 2017, France accounted for 20.9% of the total luxury goods retail sales in Europe and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% till 2022.
