Global Fashion Duty Free Retailing: Market Dynamics and Forecasts, Retail Trends and Competitive Landscape

Duty free channel is attracting fashion retailers because of its growth opportunities.

Global fashion duty free sales grew at a CAGR of 3.2% during 2011-2016. Rising passenger traffic at major airports, more retail space, and more fashion brands expanding into the duty free channel will drive growth over the next five years. The global fashion duty free market is predicted to grow at a robust CAGR of 7.6% till 2021, adding US$4.4 billion in sales value.

Tourism growth is largely being boosted by increasing low cost airline options and increased air routes across the world, but also via cruise ships, which, with downtown duty free stores, is expanding access to duty free products. Moreover, fashion duty free stores are improving their retail environment by introducing more international brands, and affordable price points to attract all spending levels
