Propelled by robust consumer spending, the luxury market is poised for rapid growth. The return of Chinese consumers and the rise of online shopping is expected to amplify this expansion. Hence, quality luxury stocks Industria de Diseño Textil (IDEXY), H & M (HNNMY), and Movado Group (MOV) could make ideal additions to your portfolio now. Read on…

Fueled by strong consumer spending and a fresh post-pandemic chapter, the luxury industry is primed for swift advancement. The resurgence of Chinese consumers and the escalating prominence of online shopping are set to propel the industry's expansion further.

As a result, fundamentally sound luxury stocks Industria de Diseño Textil, S.A. (IDEXY), H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB (publ) (HNNMY), and Movado Group, Inc. (MOV), with robust profitability, could be solid additions to your portfolio. Let’s understand this in detail.

In July, retail sales, adjusted for seasonality but not inflation, surged 0.7% compared to the previous month, outpacing the prior month's revised 0.3% growth and surpassing economists' projected 0.4% increase. This marked the fourth consecutive month of rising retail sales.

Despite economic uncertainties, the luxury industry is poised for success, buoyed by robust consumer spending and a new post-pandemic phase. The sector's strong fundamentals, expanding, and elevated customer base are expected to contribute to its positive outlook in 2023 and beyond.

Furthermore, with the relaxation of restrictions and the resurgence of cross-border travel, the return of Chinese consumers, who constitute the largest spending group in the luxury goods industry worldwide, is anticipated to drive a 20% increase in demand for premium apparel, accessories, and other products in 2023.

Looking ahead, Chinese nationals are projected to contribute significantly to the expansion of personal luxury goods expenditure, with an estimated 60% share of total growth by 2030. This growth trajectory would be propelled by wealth accumulation, coupled with influential demographic, social, and technological dynamics.

The luxury industry is also capitalizing on an expanding online presence, a result of the accelerated digitalization caused by the pandemic. Online sales are poised to outpace mono-brand retail stores, with projections indicating a 33% share of personal luxury goods sales by 2030, driven by brands' web platforms and new digital opportunities.

A report from management consultancy Bain and Italian luxury association Altagamma forecasts a 5% to 12% year-on-year expansion for the global luxury market in 2023. The industry's value is predicted to elevate to €360 - €380 billion ($393.02 billion - $414.85 billion) this year, a notable surge from €345 billion ($376.64 billion) in 2022.

Bain's projections suggest that by 2030, the luxury market might soar to €530 - €570 billion ($578.61 billion - $622.28 billion), about 2.5 times its 2020 value. Meanwhile, as per Fortune Business Insights, the global luxury goods market would grow from $284 billion in 2023 to $392.40 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 4.7%.

Against this backdrop, let’s now delve into the fundamentals of robust luxury stocks IDEXY, HNNMY, and MOV to understand what could make them worthwhile investments.
