Luxury Management

With the advent and rapid growth of the luxury industry in the India, job opportunities are on a rise in this coveted field. With the industry being just about a decade old in the country right now, the time is ripe for expansion. Get to know more about the luxury management programs.

WHY SHOULD YOU STUDY LUXURY MANAGEMENT?

India has been reported to have the world’s fastest-growing population of millionaires right now. The number of millionaires in the country has grown from 196,000 to 250,000 in the past year. That is a 27% rise as compared to 2014. Wealth-X, which is the global authority on wealth intelligence, predicts as much as 437,000 Indiabased millionaires by 2018, and the number to have doubled by 2023.

They also note that the key indicators for India’s potential economic growth are its new reformist government, well- defined legal system, and the immense rise of entrepreneurship in the country.

Even in times of financial uncertainty, the growth rate of the Indian luxury industry has been tremendous. China is considered to be the largest growing market for luxury brands in Asia, and though India hasn’t taken over the title just yet, the diminishing sales in the Chinese luxury markets is a noteworthy detail to consider. The Indian luxe market is currently estimated at a whooping USD 7.8 billion, and is set to grow at a staggering rate of 86% in constant value terms between 2013 and 2018.

With the massive list of positive statistics, there is a huge need for managers who have an in-depth idea of the trends of the luxe industry. Armed with specialised management degrees in luxury, hordes of students are flocking to this new career option.

WHAT SEGMENTS CAN YOU PURSUE LUXURY BRAND MANAGEMENT IN?

The need for luxury-educated brand managers increased exponentially as luxury permeated across various segments like cars, fashion, wines, chocolates, spa services, jewellery, leather accessories, watches and more. A December 2011 survey report by Luxury Connect states that a trained manpower of 1.76 million would have been required by last year in  the luxe field.

What more, luxury brands have started spreading their operations to newer countries. A brand manager with a large luxury house is almost like the face of the brand in India or abroad, for example the Asia Pacific region or the Gulf area. A luxury brand manager is also required to continually question and redefine the lines of luxury. This is done by keeping the changing times, perceptions and tastes of the region’s public in mind.
