  • The size of the global luxury market has almost doubled in the past decade
  • Chinese consumers spend one in every three dollars spent on luxury goods globally and account for much of the recent growth
  • Europe accounts for a third of the global personal luxury market but only 19% of total luxury sales is attributed to Europeans
