What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Traditional retailers are witnessing a consistent decline in customer footfalls and revenues as customers flock towards the online channel due to the high levels of convenience and competitive pricing. Traditional retailers have been uncharacteristically sluggish to adapt to the online channel despite its apparent advantages, a fact confirmed by the data and analytics firm Qauntium. According to the company's Market Blueprint analysis as of May 2012, of the leading 15 online retailers, only two were multi-channel retailers. Recently, however, there have been positive signs from both international and domestic retailers, who have launched their own online marketplaces or strengthened their online offerings.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers have been reacting to the effects of the global recession, including the following recovery period, on their discretionary spending and retail markets have been no exception. While the country by country market changes have varied, nowhere has been left totally untouched. This report quantitatively examines the components of change in the market by looking at historic and future growth patterns including how changes in consumers' behavior have affected the online retail sector for different product categories.
