MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

A concierge service is a personal assistance company offering its customers a range of day-to-day services, such as finding an emergency plumber, obtaining a visa, waiting for a delivery, buying and wrapping gifts, organizing a dinner party at home, or collecting a piece of paper from the tax office. The stated aim is to simplify customers' lives by saving them time. A similar service is now being developed in France, that of the private assistant or personal secretary, who focuses more specifically on filing papers, dealing with administrative formalities and helping with household management. More recently, "e-conciergeries" offering dematerialized services have appeared. The concept refers to services comparable to those of a luxury hotel concierge, tasked with finding a solution to all practical worries, rather than a building concierge who traditionally only looks after common areas and mail.

The global concierge market is bo oming, with an expected CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 6.1% per year between 2021 and 2030. While North America remains the dominant continent in the market, development is expected to be driven by rapid growth in the Asia-Pacific market, thanks in particular to an improvement in the average standard of living on the continent. [Spherical Insights] In France, the market is expected to expand by a modest 0.5% per year up to 2022. Indeed, after a decade of strong growth, the market is entering a phase of concentration, with mergers and acquisitions and the bankruptcy of players who have failed to reach critical mass. However, the post-Covid context and the upturn in tourism are giving the market a new impetus. [Le Parisien]

However, the French market still offers interesting prospects, with the advent of digital concierge services that manage to offer low-cost solutions, the development of corporate concierge services for B2B customers, and that of Airbnb concierge services in line with the rental platform's growing presence in major French cities.
