Why is Luxury Goods an attractive investment?

Many of the developing countries in emerging markets, especially in Asia have experienced rapid GDP growth and increasing wealth over the last decade. Growing wealth coupled with rising disposable incomes has led to a steep rise in demand for luxury goods and services. Hence, it is no surprise that we see new showrooms for brands like Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton popping up in Mumbai, Jakarta and Shanghai.

Rising disposable incomes of the middle class leads to higher buying power and more demand for aspirational goods. China, India and Indonesia are three of Asia’s largest emerging economies with a combined population nearing 2.75 billion and a combined GDP exceeding US$10 trillion. Indonesian GDP per capita crossed US$3500 in 2013. This is expected to kick-start higher growth in discretionary spending.
