The global luxury car market size was valued at USD 449.7 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 655.0 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period.

At present, the luxury car market as a whole is undergoing social changes such as the modern lifestyle and the adoption of the latest technologies. Luxury brands seem to have a lower degree of remoteness, differentiation, and exclusivity towards the improvement of the quality of life. As a result, competition between these brands has intensified for gaining a higher brand identity. With enhancements in product standards, people’s perception of the car’s brand image plays a crucial role in their purchasing decision. High-end brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Lexus must form attributes and values ​​that would reflect the ever-changing social values, which would further affect the buyer emotionally.

COVID-19 Pandemic to Decline Growth Backed by Consumers’ Focus on Saving More

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a drastic impact on the globally integrated automotive industry. Industry experts project that as compared to the mass car segment, the market will face greater resistance because customers will save cash and reduce purchases in the future.

Introduction of Electrified and Autonomous Cars is a Crucial Trend

Rapid advances in several fields, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning have subsequently led to advances in autonomous vehicles. The growth in research and development of the electrification of vehicles is one of the leading trends in the luxury vehicle industry. This factor is likely to augment the growth of this market. Additionally, the rapid development of various features, such as personal voice assistance, autonomous driving, and retina recognition, is also expected to promote the sales of luxury vehicles.


Rising Adoption of the Electric Luxury Cars to Drive Growth

With the increasing concern for the environment and environmental protection, governments all over the world are tightening the emission standards for vehicles. As a result, the demand for environmentally friendly and sustainable transportation, such as electric vehicles is rapidly growing. Governments of various countries are also providing higher subsidies and incentives to these car owners.

  • For instance, the U.K. government is providing tax-payer funded incentives of USD 7600 for each electric car.

Also, owing to the increasing disposable income and high net wealth of individuals, the preferential shift of end-users to choose luxury brands is gradually surging.

Increasing Demand for Pre-owned Luxury Cars to Aid Growth

According to car dealers, the demand for pre-owned luxury vehicles is continuously growing because these cars are frequently sold after one or two years of usage by owners for the reason of getting better models and upgrades. In order to meet the growing demand, the used luxury vehicle market is becoming more systematized, with easy access to financing, lower entry prices, and annual maintenance contracts.

  • For instance, Maruti Suzuki’s True Value in India conducts a technical inspection and offers a two-years warranty coupled with other benefits. This will also lead to a rise in the sales of pre-owned luxury cars owing to the high confidence level among the consumers.

All these factors would lead to the widespread adoption of luxury cars.


High Product Cost May Hinder Market Growth

As compared to conventional vehicles, luxury vehicles are very expensive in nature owing to their luxurious and advanced features, such as high-quality parts and expensive materials. Additionally, the cost of manufacturing cars with luxurious features and options is higher than the cost of manufacturing them with universal features. In addition to this, as the sales of luxury cars are very low, a large part of the selling price is used to pay for their development, making these types of cars more expensive. Therefore, the high cost of luxury vehicles is expected to hamper the market growth.
