HSBC revises downwards its forecast for luxury goods sales growth in 2023

HSBC issues a warning to the luxury goods sector, revising downwards its growth forecasts for 2023. In a recently published sector note, the bank highlights weaker-than-expected holiday demand for luxury goods. This revision is accompanied by significant adjustments to price targets for iconic brands.


In a sector note published on Tuesday January 16, HSBC highlights the current challenges facing the luxury goods sector, offering a critical perspective on consumer trends and the adjustments needed to maintain sustained growth.

HSBC points out in its note that “rising prices are likely to be an issue for consumers in mature markets”.
