Luxury Goods Retailing in the Americas 2015-2020; Market dynamics, trends and competitive landscape

Published: September 2016
No. of Pages: 120


The luxury goods market in the Americas is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2015 to 2020. The US is the largest luxury goods retail market in the Americas, accounting for a 91.8% share with a sales of US$102.1 billion in 2015. Though the US is a mature market, it is expected to observe the highest increase in value sales of US$20 billion over the next five years driven by economic recovery and thriving demand from aspirational consumers and tourists. However, a stronger US dollar will continue taking its toll resulting in relatively slower growth than that observed in the five years to 2015.

Key Findings

  • The US is the largest luxury goods retail market in the Americas, accounting for a 91.8% share with sales of US$102.1 billion in 2015. By 2020, the market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% to reach US$122.2 billion.
  • Clothing remains to be the largest product category while communications equipment will be the fastest growing category in the region
  • Weaker currency against the US dollar is attracting tourists to Latin America and Canada which in turn will boost the tourists spend in the luxury goods market
  • Despite the growing UHNWI population in Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela, strict import regulations, high taxes, economic crises and inflation encourage the affluent to buy luxury goods from other countries when they are travelling to save on huge taxes.
  • Luxury brands such as Ralph Lauren and Sephora are enhancing in-store customer experiences using digital technology
