Hard Luxury Goods Market: Global Industry Analysis And Forecast (2022-2029)

Hard Luxury Goods Market was valued at USD 96.65 Billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 235.46 Billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period (2022-2029) Hard luxury goods are long-lasting things such as jewels and watches. Every item of jewellery and watch in hard luxury is one-of-a-kind and meant to be timeless works of art. Hard luxury is a mainstay of the personal luxury goods industry and continues to account for a large share of sales; however, it has been characterised by relatively low growth in recent years due to an economic slowdown and changing consumption habits, particularly in the Greater China region, which fueled sales at the start of the decade. When compared to other nations, China made the highest revenue of USD 22,000 million in 2021. In 2021, per person revenues of USD 8.93 were earned in proportion to overall population data. Consumers' rising taste for cutting-edge and sophisticated items has fueled global sales of hard luxury goods. During the forecast period, the growing number of high-net-worth people in developed nations, as well as rising disposable income in developing markets, are expected to have a favourable impact on this market.

COVID-19 Impact on Hard Luxury Goods Market Amid the coronavirus pandemic, every company's first responsibility was to safeguard the health and safety of its employees, customers, and business partners. Indeed, luxury corporations have shifted their focus to meet pressing public-health needs: factories that formerly created hard luxury products now produce face masks and hand sanitizer, and many luxury groups have made monetary commitments to hospitals and other non-profit organisations. Simultaneously, with millions of people relying on the luxury-goods industry for a living—from factory workers and retail-store employees to small-town artisans and craftspeople—industry leaders are planning ahead and grappling with longer-term strategic questions to ensure their businesses' survival. Even before the pandemic, independent luxury-goods wholesalers in Europe (many of which are small, family-owned boutiques) and some of the large North American luxury department stores were struggling, thanks in part to luxury brands' shift to vertical integration over the last 20 years and, more recently, the rise of e-commerce. Some of them may be forced out of business as a result of the pandemic. Firms who have not yet fully migrated to a vertically integrated distribution strategy, as well as startup brands that rely on wholesale channels to attract new customers and finance the development of their full collections, might be harmed. Wholesalers are expected to implement aggressive sales and discount practises in order to survive, which might harm the premium positioning of brands that do not have a concession model in the longer term.

Hard Luxury Goods Market Dynamics

Hard Luxury Adapting e-commerce: Soft luxury, which includes products like leather accessories, purses, and designer apparel, has adapted particularly successfully to e-commerce, with it estimated that 9 percent of soft luxury purchases are now made online. Hard luxury, which includes products such as jewellery and watches, has taken longer to adapt. Less than 5% of the hard luxury market is now available online, and several manufacturers are sceptical that their customers will ever want to make such large purchases online. Bold movements by existing houses into new areas of specialisation are assisting in the growth of hard luxury online. In order to acquire market share, brands that have previously concentrated on soft luxury have recently made steps to manufacture and sell hard luxury products. For example, Louis Vuitton shifted its focus from apparel and luggage to develop a jewellery business with an internet presence. These are big moves by the norms of a cautious, conservative sector. Hard Luxury Goods Market Emerging Technology Embedded Products: Innovative and fashionable goods that incorporate technological aspects in jewellery and watches are estimated to boost product demand. Totwoo Fashion Technology, a smart jewellery producer, unveiled a new line, 'Wonderland,' in April 2019, showing social interactive wearable technology pendants with intelligent cores. The core is used to transmit data from jewellery to mobile applications through Bluetooth. Likewise, in 2020. Totwoo unveiled its new 'Morse Code Series,' a series developed for couples in which a Morse code rhythm necklace sends a notice to the other person whenever the first person taps his/her necklace. Long-distance remote sensing (Love rhythm), love code pair conversation, step tracking, phone notification, personalised alert, and private journal are among the additional functions of the necklace. As a result, the advent of smart luxury items is expected to propel the hard luxury industry forward. Rising Number of Wealthy Population: Hard luxury items are products that are primarily sought after by the wealthy. The hard luxury goods industry is expected to grow due to an increase in the number of rich people. For example, in January 2020, over 2,153 billionaires worldwide possessed more money than the 4.6 billion individuals who constitute 60% of the global population. Companies are attempting to attract the attention of the millennial and GenZ populations by giving personalised product offerings. As a result, rising demand for high-end fashion items from the wealthy population would drive market development. Inclination Towards Sustainable Products: Lowering power use, using less water, and using safer raw materials are being emphasised to achieve supply chain sustainability. In November 2019, the Prada Group signed a Sustainability Linked Loan deal with the Credit Agricole Group. If Prada meets its sustainability standards, it will be able to lower interest rates on a 50 million euro five-year sustainability term loan. Among the sustainability goals are the usage of Re-Nylon (regenerated nylon) in the creation of items and attaining LEED Gold or Platinum Certification for the company's outlets. As a result, increased attempts to produce sustainable luxury products are expected to stimulate demand for eco-friendly hard luxury items. High Price of Jewelry & Watches: Hard luxury necessitates greater investment, and the cost of hard luxury is often substantially more than that of soft luxury. As a result, hard luxury sales, which include items such as jewellery and watches, have been slower than soft luxury sales. Apparently, less than 5% of hard luxury transactions are made online now, and most hard luxury vendors are sceptical that their luxury consumers would buy hard luxury products online as readily as they buy soft luxury. Hard luxury is evolving in part because soft luxury is changing. Changes in global purchasing patterns imply new clients to serve, notably in the BRIC countries. Everyone is arguing about how to engage younger audiences who do not act like previous generations of consumers. Brands have been lowering their demanding pricing points in order to include profitable diffusion brands and approachable price points in order to draw in new consumers. Thomas Sabo, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade are examples of " affordable luxury." Hard Luxury Goods Market Adaption of Second-Hand Branded Items: Second-hand items are sold at auctions, charity events, bazaar-style fundraisers, privately operated consignment stores, and other similar venues. As second-hand items are supplied at a cheaper cost than the original price of the product, a rising trend of acquiring second-hand branded products or renting luxury goods is estimated to affect the market of original hard luxury goods. Rising consumer living standards, aided by rising disposable income levels, have resulted in an increase in demand for second-hand luxury items in both established and emerging countries, with the millennial and urbanised populations preferring high-end fashion accessories at reduced rates. Furthermore, the widespread availability of pre-owned luxury goods on internet platforms, as well as the reducing stigma associated with using pre-owned luxury products, have slowed market development. Similarly, the rising counterfeiting trend, in which items mimicking premium brands are sold at cheaper rates, is estimated to restrain market growth.

Hard Luxury Goods Market Segment Analysis

Based on the product type, the market is segmented into watches and jewelry. Because of the growing demand for smart luxury watches, timepieces are the most significant income producers. Watches are estimated to be the most valuable product in the global hard luxury goods market, with sales increasing at a CAGR of 10.08 percent during the forecast period. However, due to the increasing demand for various types of jewellery goods are expected to have a constant growth in demand during the forecast period. Hard Luxury Goods Market Based on the gender, the market is classified into men and women. Women are seen to be a more lucrative purchasing market for hard luxury items than males. Women would account for the majority of the market, owing to a growing preference for accessories such as watches, necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Emerging male grooming trends would promote the expansion of the male category, with branded high-end timepieces seeing increased demand from men. As a result, several businesses are focused on providing goods that can meet the diverse needs of both end-users. Based on the distribution channel, the market is categorized into monobrand stores, specialty stores, department stores, and online stores. Monobrand and speciality stores are selling more hard luxury products than the other two sectors, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. Customers may directly view and touch the items at monobrand and specialty stores, allowing them to compare their qualities in-person. Companies are attempting to improve their market footprint by increasing their presence in retail or department shops. For example, in February 2020, Burberry announced the acquisition of Printemps in Paris, a department store chain that sells a wide range of luxury goods as well as fashion and beauty products. However, the convenience of purchasing through online channels would make it the fastest-growing area. The COVID-19 pandemic has created even more opportunity to enhance internet channels in the luxury industry. For example, in March 2020, Reliance revealed plans to launch a new e-commerce site in India for purchasing luxury commodities. As a result, the online purchasing of hard luxury products is estimated to continue in the near future. Hard Luxury Goods Market
