Global Powers of Luxury Goods 2022

During FY2021, luxury goods companies rebounded from the COVID-19 pandemic, with store re-openings and a recovery in consumer demand. The Top 100 luxury goods companies generated composite sales of US$305 billion, which represents a 21.5% increase over the previous year and is higher than pre-pandemic levels.

The ‘green transition’ and the move toward a circular economy are providing luxury goods companies with new opportunities. In conjunction with the ongoing metaverse and Web3 revolution, this is driving innovation and disruption in the luxury industry. Increasingly, companies are integrating sustainability principles into their core strategies, developing environmentally-friendly new materials, and making sure their products are sustainable by design. Luxury companies can use the metaverse to reinvent
luxury experiences, build brand credibility, and engage customers. Existing and new customers can interact with a brand’s products and essence in new ways through digital reality.

After a hiatus during the pandemic, M&A activity picked up again in 2021 and 2022. Companies refocused on their core luxury brands and sought to enhance profitability and financial stability by selling non-core businesses to consumer goods and private equity firms.
