Luxury Industry in South Korea

According to Euromonitor International’s luxury goods research, South Korea’s luxury goods market is ranked 8th out of 32 countries covered by them in their research and it accounts for 3 per cent of the global market. The South Korean luxury goods market is reportedly valued at KRW13 trillion (US$11 billion at current 2016 prices), mentioned the study.

Stable income growth combined with lowincome inequality has given a boost to luxury goods spending. Also, the industrial hubs of Seoul and Gyeonggi-do have contributed to the luxury goods spending.

The consumers are becoming fond of buying one-ofa- kind, luxury items to show off their wealth.
