The global personal luxury goods market is highly fragmented

The global personal luxury goods market is highly fragmented, with the presence of both global vendors and local players, says the recent global personal luxury goods market report by Technavio. This market research report also lists 14 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market from 2017 to 2021. With rising competition, manufacturers are bringing in innovative new products to meet the changing demands of customers in accordance with the latest fashion and lifestyle trends. Celebrity endorsements and fashion events are important marketing techniques used by manufacturers to showcase their new product offerings.

The launch of new products, rise in the number of mergers and acquisitions and increasing investment in luxury brand marketing strategies are factors that will lead to a considerable intensification of competition over the next five years,” says Poonam Saini, a lead retail goods and services analyst from Technavio.

The report also states that factors such as growth in international travel and tourism, surging middle class, and rise in department stores are expected to propel the growth of the personal luxury goods market during the forecast period.
