Global luxury Retail: a divergent market

Is luxury immune to the twist ad turns of global economy?

The world of luxury continues to fascinate and intrigue, with brand names synonymous with luxury now shouting out to us from many locations around the world. CBRE has invested in research to get beneath the surface of luxury in three traditional cities across Europe: London, Paris and Milan to explore some insights from luxury consumers, along with a look at the economic impact on luxury and how they combine with retailers' strategy plans. And finally, to expand the view of luxury, we also engaged our market experts in New York, Mumbai and Lagos.

How Global is the Business of Retail?

In its eighth year CBRE's How Global is the Business of Retail? will once again focus on the target markets for new brands.

We examined 50 countries and 164 cities across the world to provide a comprehensive view of the markets that international brands have been targeting.
By analysing the brand sectors that have been expanding and the flow of cross-border expansion we are able to interrogate what that means and impact is likely to have on retail markets in all the regions.
