- Cosmetics and perfumes
- Wines and spirits
- Confectionery and fine foods
The top three revenue-generating product categories in the global duty-free retailing market are discussed below:
Fashion, accessories, and hard luxury products
“In 2016, the fashion, accessories, and hard luxury segment dominated the global market with a share of almost 34%. Key products in this category are precious jewelry, briefcases, handbags, and shoes. With increasing disposable income and growing influence of the fashion goods industry on consumers' purchase decisions, the adoption of luxury apparel and accessories is mounting,” says Poonam Saini, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for retail goods and services research.
Chinese travelers are the highest contributors to the sales of luxury brands, who account for 25% of the global revenue of luxury products' retailers. Michael Kors, Armani, Fossil, Gucci, and Burberry are some of the top brands in this market space.
Cosmetics and perfumes
Cosmetics and perfumes are one of the largest segments in the duty-free retailing space due to an increase in international travel, luxury foreign spending, growing disposable income of middle-class travelers, and rapid urbanization. Some of the top selling cosmetics and perfume brands are Chanel, Christian Dior, Estée Lauder, and Guerlain.
L'Oréal, one of the largest cosmetics and perfumes manufacturers, has a division only for duty-free retail, describing the division as the Sixth Continent. Similarly, Estée Lauder expanded its brands' presence by opening a boutique in emerging countries like the UAE and in Detroit Metro Airport, the US, which acts a primary gateway to Asian countries for procuring duty-free cosmetics and perfumes. Such moves by top brands are driving the growth of this segment.
Wines and spirits
“Most consumers prefer buying premium alcoholic beverages through duty-free retail, as the sector offers these premium products at a lower price. Innovations in store layouts, well-trained staff, more limited editions, and technological innovations, which help customers to compare prices with duty-paid shops, are some of the key drivers in this category,” says Poonam.
Johnnie Walker, Diageo's Scotch brand, continues to be the top-selling brand, followed by Absolut, Jack Daniel's, Chivas Regal, and others. Despite limitations on the quantity of alcohol that can be procured, the global duty-free retailing market for wines and spirits is estimated to showcase significant growth through the forecast period.
