Decline in luxury consumer confidence can have a direct effect on retail sales in 2013

Sales of luxury products may fall in 2013 due to a decline in consumer confidence.

Luxury reported that Consumer confidence among the top 20 percent of U.S. households has decreased back to the level reported in the second quarter of 2012, which is the second-largest drop in confidence since the first quarter of 2008, according to a study by Unity Marketing.

The Luxury Consumption Index found that the top 20 percent who represent approximately 40 percent of consumer spending in the United States reported a confidence level that dropped 19.4 points in January since the last survey in October. This comes after a 24.3 point rise in confidence that was seen in the results of the October report.

"For luxury marketers, the advice from these results is caution, because the target luxury consumers are being cautious," said Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing.

"Marketers will need to work hard to bring in the same dollars they did last year and even harder to generate growth," she said.

"The luxury market is going to get increasingly competitive, since nobody really needs any of these luxury goods and services since perfectly acceptable substitutes are widely available for much less money."

The Luxury Consumption Index is based on the Luxury Tracking Survey that measures the optimism that affluent consumers feel about the overall state of the economy and their personal financial situation. The latest report is based on a survey conducted Jan. 9-15 among 1,369 luxury consumers with an average income of $267,800.
