Luxury Insights China:

At the peak of the boom in the luxury market in China we realised that unlike those of us living in the country experiencing the variations of this sector, luxury industry leaders globally needed a regular and impartial report covering the rapid changes as part of their learning and strategy development thinking. As a result, we introduced Luxury Insights China (LIC) issuing a monthly report to our subscribers for five years until the market became more stable and changes less frequent and we felt that the period of big news had past.

Luxury Insights China is no longer issued, but we still operate and monitor the luxury sector constantly and provide our research and analytical skills to clients from around the globe to assist in pre market entry, the practical aspects of consumer acquisition and as importantly understanding of the travelling Chinese luxury consumer. Our knowledge and expertise grew dramatically during the Luxury Insights China years, and continues to develop today.
