BEIJING, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — While Gilt is already a household name among online shoppers in the US, the brand, although a relative newcomer to the Chinese market, is already off to a vigorous start. China, with the world’s most vibrant market for luxury goods due to its soaring middle-class – already at 50 million and still growing – has a healthy appetite for the better things in life and remains the country with the largest potential for the brand.
In 2011, China has experienced a huge increase in sales of luxury products, placing the country first in terms of speed of growth in the sector. The country is expected to see a year-over-year increase of 25% to 11.5 billion euros in sales of luxury goods this year, according to the Luxury Goods Worldwide Market Study recently released by US-based Bain & Company. In tandem with the rapid overall increase in consumption, tastes, attitudes and demands among Chinese consumers when buying luxury goods are experiencing tremendous changes. Forecasts show the country’s online sales of luxury products increased by 30% to between US$4 billion and US$6 billion in five years. The development of luxury e-commerce is clearly on a fast track.
