In the last few years, luxury in India has been growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 25 percent. As per a recent report by ASSOCHAM, the market, from its current size of $14.7 billion, is expected to hit $18.6 billion by 2016 Service areas such as fine dining, electronics, luxury travel, luxury personal care and jewelry saw increasing revenues and are expected to grow by 30 percent and 35 percent over the next three years. Spending on luxury cars continue to rise growing upwards at 18 percent to 20 percent over the next three years. By the year 2022, Indian Luxury Products & services will be requiring manpower to the count of 1.76 million head to service the India's ever growing dynamic consumer base. The existing manpower lacks the expertise and nuances to handle the luxury brand since India is still not in the forefront of providing Management education from Luxury perspective.
To position India in the Luxury retail world map an imperative focus has to be given to Luxury Brand Management courses and training programs to develop Luxury brand managers who are equipped to perform in global luxury landscape.
