CircleSquare explores key Chinese shopping trends
Retail specialist CircleSquare has released a 50-page in-depth report into the Chinese luxury market, offering a wide variety of insights into reaching these new consumers.
China: Defining the new luxury covers the key cultural trends that influence the way Chinese luxury customers think, shop and buy, using numerous case studies featuring worldwide luxury and home-grown Chinese brands. This report mainly revolves around the young and affluent Gen Z shopper, the demographic set to become the dominant luxury consumer group in China by 2025. Key takeaways include guiding thoughts around disruption, innovation, storytelling, experience, loyalty and personalization.
CircleSquare Managing Partner Stephane Zermatten said: “Despite what we are told, the brand experiences that appear to work in Paris, New York or Milan are actually lagging way behind the zeitgeist of what the fast-evolving Chinese customers expect from luxury brands.
“Brands need to be ready to serve their customers where they are across a multitude of touchpoints in a proactive, consistent and personalized manner to build relationships and long-lasting loyalty. Only the brands who have replaced their universal approaches with personalized experiences and customized products for the Chinese market will succeed in the next five years.
“With our report, we have set out to investigate the key trends which are shaping the luxury market in China and offer insights on how brands can succeed in engaging with and ultimately capturing the business of China’s new generation of luxury shopper.”
