The Chinese luxury market is the second-largest market by volume after the United States, but it can be considered the most important. Just think that in 2019 the world luxury market amounted to 1.3 trillion euros with a growth of 4% (Bain & Company report), and 90% of this growth occurred thanks to Chinese consumers. Today, it can be safely said that nearly one in three customers of Western luxury brands is Chinese.
