China’s gen Z consumers spend much on luxury goods

China is such a huge market for global brands to develop and luxury ones are not exception. There is a growing number of Chinese consumers for luxury goods which raises several concerns for governments.

Once these luxury brands dominate China, Chinese sky-high tariffs will be beaten, dimming the prospects for future growth. However, Chinese teens do not pay much attention to these problems.

Chinese teens’ shopping behaviours towards luxury goods

The China’s gen Z consumers are said to spend more than $7000 per year on luxury goods, outshining their Western peers. According to Adam Xu, a partner at OC&C Strategy Consultants, this new generation do not care about their career prospects as well as international politics even though there is a trade war between their country and America at the moment. They just spend more and save less for their own life.

According to a report from Bain & Co in 2018, young Chinese consumers will account for more than 45 percent of luxury purchases in the market by 2025. Due to the policy of one child each family in China, Gen-Zers tend to receive more financial support from parents than older generations. In addition, Chinese youth often live with their family, therefore, they do not need to worry about their income compared to their peers in Europe.

All in all, the shopping behaviours of Chinese young consumers are understandable. If this trend continues to grow, the number of Gen- Zers spending money on luxury goods will be higher and higher in the future.
