Survey: Luxury Marketers Will Find It Harder to Outperform 1Q

Unity Marketing’s Luxury Consumption Index dropped back from 86.9 points, the highest level reached since September 2007, to 77.6 points.

Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing said in a statement that the index is higher than it was in October 2009, but the decline predicts a "slow down in luxury expenditures."

The LCI is calculated from the results of Unity Marketing’s quarterly Luxury Tracking Survey, conducted April 6-10th among 1,245 affluent luxury consumers (avg. income $331,500; age 45.6 years; 42 percent male/58 percent female). For more information, click here.
