Luxury Goods Luxury goods are products and services that are not considered essential and are associated with affluence. In economics, a luxury good is a good for which demand increases more than proportionally as income rises, and is a contrast to a “necessity good� for which demand increases proportionally less than income.

Luxury Brands A luxury brand is a brand for which a majority of its products are luxury goods. It may also include certain brands whose names are associated with luxury, high price, or high quality, though few, if any, of their goods are currently considered luxury goods. Luxury brands are regarded as images in the minds of consumers that comprise associations about a high level of price, quality, aesthetics, rarity, extraordinariness and a high degree of non-functional associations.
