The smartphone market growth is expected to rise due to strong application and games applications, as users’ demands for communication and entertainment are increasing day by day.
One of the most important market trends to watch out for is the future of the tourism industry.

Luxury goods exporters expect the luxury goods market to expand in the next two to five years due to the high demand for newly manufactured designer handbags and accessories by affluent customers around the world. Some of the global luxury brands such as Prada, Burberry, Chanel and Louis Vuitton have already moved their manufacturing base to Asia and are offering their products in local markets at attractive prices. Consumers are searching for authentic luxury brands and are ready to pay handsomely to acquire them. Expanding overseas distribution channels is another area that is expected to contribute towards the growth of the global second-hand luxury goods market.
Some of the most important market indicators that are used by luxury goods industry professionals to determine the growth and expansion prospects of the business include the following. These include – import and export prices, foreign direct investment (FDI) and the forecast period for which the forecast is made. This is because different factors affect the rates of exports and imports and thus the forecast period is determined as per these factors. However, it must be noted that even if a country’s goods trade is affected by external factors, it is possible for it to gain popularity among customers through the quality of its products, services and promotions or through its perceived social value.
