China Luxury Network Research

China Luxury Network aggregates ongoing primary market research in conjunction with its parent company, Affinity China — a private network for high net worth Chinese individuals. Unlike other consumer groups in China, high net worth Chinese individuals guard their privacy closely, and are traditionally very difficult to directly access for market research purposes. By working closely with Affinity China and traveling with Affinity China members, China Luxury Network is able to gain extremely valuable insights for luxury brands.

Purchase CLN’s latest research report:

Released March 15, 2012: Serving the Global Chinese Consumer. This report details high net worth consumer preferences and trends with actionable insights and tactical recommendations for generating revenue and loyalty among China’s high net worth travelers.

“Brands need to stop thinking about China as a geographic market, and start thinking about Chinese consumers as a global demographic interacting with your brand in Shanghai and Wuhan, San Francisco and Paris. Once you understand Chinese consumers in this perspective, and recognize that branding and marketing to Chinese consumers is not a “market entry” issue, but a strategic global challenge, it completely changes the way you approach this emerging consumer.”
