Market Report, "Hong Kong Retail Report Q1 2016", published

Hong Kong, Asia's prime destination for retailers, will be exposed to various risks in the nearest future. The heavily tourism-dependent city will have to face decline s in tourist arrivals from Mainland China and more price-c onscious tourists from the euro zone who will be dealing with shrinking value of their currency. The city's retail sector will be forced to show its resilience in 2015 and adjust to changing consumer expectations.

Hong Kong's retail sector depends greatly on China, the world's second largest economy. The city state is projected to receive 50mn Chinese tourists in 2015 alone. Hong Kong's world class retail scene attracts wealthy Chinese who support the growth of the city's luxury retailers. Tourists from Mainland China have played a key role in Hong Kong's emergence as top destination for luxury retail and the city's stores continue to depend heavily on their spending. Sales of watches and jewellery plunged by 20% y-o-y in April 2015 as Chinese tourists were becoming more conservative in fashion spending. At the same time, the local population exhibited similar spending patterns stemming from the city's stable economy and positive growth outlooks. Despite the fears of flagship luxury retailers, mid-range spending will buoy the sector, which is forecast to expand by 7.9% in household spending this year.
