World Luxury Association’s official report on 2012 shows that China has become the world’s largest consumer of luxury goods. The report predicts: With the phenomenon of RMB appreciation and depreciation of the Euro and the number of Chinese traveling to Europe in 2012, total consumption of luxury goods is expected to reach 59 billion Euros – a record high. The spending power of Chinese overseas will urge China to become the world’s most powerful luxury consumer purchasing country.
Heritage French and Italian fashion brands including Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton make up the list of the world’s most valuable labels in fashion and cosmetics. Azimut, Rolls-Royce, Cartier, Wakaya Club, Harley Davidson, Patek Philippe, L’or De Jean Martell and Gulfstream are the leaders in their category.
On the list of Top 100 most valuable luxury brands, Sun Valley Icewine is the only Chinese domestic luxury company as a top ten innovative luxury brand. There was media talk around Chinese liquor brand “China Maotai” as a possible selection, but the consideration that the taste of Chinese liquor is not widely accepted by consumers abroad was a deciding factor, leading to Sun Valley Icewine instead.
The Most Valuable Luxury Top 100 list is based on luxury brand’s influence on a global scale, market share, consumer feedback and other composite scores — for currently the world’s most credible rankings.
