Luxury Car Market Dynamics

Strong Income Growth in Emerging Nations

Emerging nations, especially those in Asia-Pacific regions, have witnessed strong income growth over the past two decades on account of sustained economic growth. For instance, China, which had an annual per capita income of USD 950 in 2000, has witnessed double digit growth over the years to reach USD 12,814 in 2022. The strong income growth has led to the emergence of a large upper middle class which is fueling the demand for luxury cars. 

The major target demographic for luxury car manufacturers in emerging nations are the aspirational upper middle class. With strong income growth, more people are likely to obtain the upper middle class, thus leading to significant expansion of potential market for luxury carmakers. Furthermore, emerging nations are currently the only major bright spot in the global economy, with many developed nations experiencing recession or stagflation. 

Ongoing shift towards Electric Vehicles

With growing environmental concerns, automotive manufacturers are moving towards zero emission mobility solutions. For instance, in 2021, the Volkswagen Group, one of the largest global automotive manufacturers, announced that it would completely stop the development of conventional ICE cars by 2030. Luxury car manufacturers are increasing the share of electric vehicles in their product lineup. 

In June 2023, Rolls Royce,, the UK-based ultra-luxury carmaker launched Spectre, its first-ever electric vehicle. BMW, Audi and Mercedes Benz also have a lineup of EV models, whereas Tesla, the U.S.-based carmaker, only manufactures luxury electric vehicles. The ongoing shift towards electric vehicles is likely to attract the environmentally conscious, high-income clientele, which disapproves of the high carbon emissions of conventional ICE luxury vehicles. 

High Duties and Taxes

Governments, especially those in developing countries treat luxury cars as items of indulgent spending and impose very high tax rates. Governments generally impose the highest tax bracket on locally produced luxury cars whereas duties and tariffs ranging from 100 to 200% of the car’s value are imposed on fully imported cars.

The aspirational emerging upper middle class such as young corporate managers, doctors and lawyers with high income are some of the key target demographics for carmakers. High duties and taxes raises prices of luxury cars and prevents companies from expanding in local markets, thus constraining the overall growth of the global market. 


Luxury Car Market Share and Segment Analysis

Other major carmakers such as Mercedes Benz and BMW are expanding their research into new AI-based technologies to develop new applications for their luxury cars. 

Russia- Ukraine War Impact Analysis

The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has had a significant impact on the luxury car market of both countries. Ukraine has witnessed significant destruction over the course of the war with wealthy Ukrainians fleeing to western Europe. It has led to a complete collapse of the luxury car market in the country. 

Western countries have imposed severe economic sanctions on Russia for the war. It has resulted in a complete halt in the shipment of luxury cars to Russia. Furthermore, local luxury car production has been suspended by major carmakers due to the sanctions. Wealthy Russians are therefore relying upon the international grey market to import new and used luxury cars into the country.
