With a growth of 9.5% per year, the Chinese economy is experiencing a period of unprecedented economic success. This success is accompanied by a dramatic increase in the purchasing power of part of the Chinese population. Therefore, the Chinese market is becoming increasingly demanding for luxury goods and in particular, for French luxury products.

Approximately, 0.8% of Chinese consumers have high enough income to buy imported luxury goods. We are witnessing the emergence of a new Chinese elite that is characterized by a new system of values: they are becoming more individualistic and "modern?. This new elite needs to distinguish itself from the rest of the Chinese people and luxury is a means to assert their social status. It also gives them the means to express their individuality.

France has a prestigious image in China: A country that is perceived as cultural, artistic and romantic. It is also the country that best symbolizes the luxury worldwide. Indeed, 75% feel that France symbolizes luxury. Thus, to study the opportunities and dangers of economic growth for the French luxury companies, we have chosen to focus on the French group LVMH.
