5 Things: Brands Set to Land in India in 2014 - Five Things - WSJ

5 Things: Brands Set to Land in India in 2014 - Five Things - WSJ | What's new in Bharat ? Indian trends | Scoop.it

By Mukesh Jagota

A new batch of big brands is set to land in India in 2014, looking to separate shoppers from their hard-earned rupees and hoping to become the latest darling of India’s massive middle class, which seems to be spending more even as the country grows less.

McDonald’s Maharaja Mac and Domino’s Peppy Paneer pizza are already staples of the middle-class diet here. The next wave of global consumer products and services is also targeting the value-for-money conscious Indian consumer offering affordable meals, clothes and travel.

Swedish H&M, Malaisian Airasia, English Tesco, Miami Based North-American Burger King and the Spanish Massimo Dutti (yes not Italian !) are planning to open stores in India from 2014.

Sylvie Robin-Tellier's insight:

Lucrative year-end for Indian art

 

The year began on a positive note with the India Art Fair (IAF) garnering good response from national and international buyers. Then came a gloomy period of the rupee weakening against dollar. What followed was a cracker: Christie’s India debut at which Vasudeo S. Gaitonde’s 1979’s painting fetched Rs.23.7 crore ($4 million), indicating renewed optimism in the Indian art market.The London-based auctioneer’s entry into India was definitely the highlight of the year and the inaugural sale raised Rs 96.6 crore – double the pre-sale expectations.
“Over the past 10 years, our Indian client base has increased four-fold. Indian clients have shown interest in a diverse range of collecting categories. This is in addition to continuing to buy Indian art, a trend we have seen repeated in other growth markets,” Christie’s international director of Asian art Hugo Weihe told IANS.
Even though this development lends cheery optimism, London-based independent art market researcher ArtTactic has a different take altogether. “The confidence indicator in the Indian art market decreased by 13.6 percent in the last six months. This decline comes after 18 months of steady increase in positive sentiments.
“However, the economic situation in India has taken a turn for the worse in the last six months, with a significant drop in the value of the rupee,” ArtTactic contends. But Arun Vadehra, director of Delhi and London-based Vadehra Art Gallery (VAG) hasn’t lost hope. He says that the latest annual figures peg India’s art market at $400 million against the worldwide figure of $65 billion. “The weakening of the rupee has not affected the art market at all. It is a unique market, an asset of passion. Therefore, outside influences do not affect collectors’ decisions (here),” Vadehra told IANS. Earlier this year, sales at the IAF registered a healthy growth – nearly 25-30 percent – with more collectors and institutional and corporate buyers from around the world looking to invest in art.
“This is the great renewal that people were hoping for after the last three years – a great boost to the Indian contemporary art market,” IAF founding director Neha Kirpal had told IANS. “The most important thing for an artist is for his or her work to be viewed by as wide an audience as possible. It is also vital that the artist and gallerist share a close relationship and a common vision while exploring the best and most creative way to promote an artist’s work,” he added.
