The sudden outbreak of the epidemic has caused a huge economic blow to the world, as various industries have stalled without any preparation. The same goes for the luxury industry, which has suffered a significant loss from stagnant tourism, retails, and marketing activities. Hence, by analyzing the sales situation and marketing strategies of the luxury market from 2010 to 2020, this research mainly discusses the consumption trend of the luxury market after the epidemic from two aspects. On the one hand, luxury brands still need to wait for a long time to recover overseas markets, and re-measure their real consumption value after the epidemic. On the other hand, the Chinese luxury market is experiencing a consumption revolution brought by the pandemic, which may exert a lasting impact on the consumption habits of Chinese consumers in the long term. This study found that the Chinese luxury market has effectively promoted the return of consumption through the duty-free store policy to enlarge the domestic market size. To attract Generation Z and returning middle-class customers who have great consuming potential in the Chinese luxury market, luxury brands need to create a multi-channel sales approach and carry out diversified, localized, and digital marketing strategies to achieve sustainable development.
