Data points: The current $7.86 billion market, already one of the fastest-growing globally, is projected to surge by 3.5 times by 2030, according to Bain & Co.

This translates to a CAGR of a staggering 1.34% between 2024 and 2028, positioning India as a potential powerhouse in the global luxury arena.

High-end cosmetics and fragrances already take the crown, accounting for a substantial $2.28 billion in 2024. 

Thick & fast

But the growth story extends far beyond beauty. Major luxury brands are recognizing India’s potential and forging strategic partnerships with local retailers like Reliance Brands and Aditya Birla Fashion Retail. 

These collaborations unlock doors for international giants like Burberry, Giorgio Armani, and Valentino, making previously inaccessible luxury accessible to an increasing number of Indian consumers.

The magic recipe? 

Exclusivity is balanced with expansion.

While the Indian luxury market retains its aura through high prices, low sales volumes, and limited outlets, it’s subtly adapting to accommodate the burgeoning demand. 

Futuristic; The number of millionaires in India is projected to skyrocket by 105% by 2026, creating a loyal and enthusiastic customer base.

Fuels optimism

Furthermore, top-tier cities are witnessing a retail space boom, with Cushman and Wakefield reporting significant development in eight major urban centers. 

This surge reflects the confidence of developers in the market’s immense potential, further fueling its growth.

India’s luxury market is no longer a spectator; it’s poised to rewrite the global script. Watch out for this billion-dollar dream, sparkling brighter with every passing year.
