Global car sales - selected luxury brands 2018

Global luxury car market

Within the luxury goods industry, the global luxury car market is one of the most valuable luxury markets. The global market size for luxury cars is expected to have grown from 245 billion euros in 2010 to 495 billion euros in 2018. Much of the growth is attributed to the increasing consuming power of emerging markets such as China and India. Despite the rise of these markets, mature markets such as the United States remain important target countries. Mercedes-Benz leads the luxury car market in the U.S., with a luxury car market share of some 15.8 percent. BMW, Lexus, Audi, and Tesla are the runner-ups. Not only are the three German luxury car brands - Stuttgart-based Mercedes-Benz, Munich-based BMW, and Ingolstadt-based Audi - among the leading brands in the U.S. luxury car market, but they are also the top three luxury brands globally. Geely's Volvo and Tata’s Land Rover and Jaguar brands round off the list of the leading luxury vehicle brands in the world.
