featuring Heidi Resset, Research Analyst

Home delivery foodservice orders saw a 4% increase in value terms in 2013, but less than 1% of grocery sales occur online in Norway. Online sales growth is driven by ease of use of technology and recipe subscription services but true growth and changing consumer behavior will take time.

Is Internet Retailing Finally Having its Day in the UAE?

Karen Van DiesenAnalyst Insight by Karen Van Diesen - Research Analyst

View Karen Van Diesen's profile on LinkedIn

Bricks and mortar retailers in the UAE have long been in denial about the internet being a viable threat to their businesses. But, as the rising growth of this channel in recent years has illustrated, internet retailing is not only making its mark, it is here to stay.

With all the mall extensions in the UAE, one can be forgiven for not thinking internet retailing has much potential in the country. The strong shopping culture, challenging logistics and a weak investment climate for online retailers have all posed a strong hurdle, hindering the channel from really taking off. In recent years, however, e-commerce players have been making strong headway in overcoming these barriers. Euromonitor International’s growth figures show the channel has tripled in size over the past five years, with sales reaching AED2.0 billion in 2014. And, the future of internet retailing also looks bright, with an expected constant value CAGR of 38% between 2014 and 2019.

Media Product Chains Face Challenges in Japan

Brick and mortar media stores have not seen the same rate of decline in Japan that they have seen in other developed markets.  Between 2008-2013, sales in these stores declined only 2% in Japan compared to 8% in North America.  Still, with the increasing digitalisation of media consumption in the youth market, these stores must fight to remain relevant.  Notable new concept stores offer retailtainment or products that can't be downloaded but it remains to be seen whether these stores can broaden their appeal to consumers younger than 50.

What Impact Would Scottish Independence Have on the Retailing Industry?

Filippo BattainiAnalyst Insight by Filippo Battaini - Retailing Analyst

View Filippo Battaini's profile on LinkedIn

In view of the vote on 18th September on whether Scotland should become an independent state or not, there has been a lot of debate on the state of the Scottish economy and whether Scotland will fare better or worse outside the union. But, with a Scottish retailing market that Euromonitor International estimates at £28.5 billion in 2013, what is it likely to be the impact of the possible independence on this industry? Will an independent Scotland be good or bad for large retailers currently operating across the UK? As the details of how independence would be implemented still need to be negotiated and defined – for instance, it is not clear which currency an independent Scotland would adopt – it is currently not possible to state precisely the likely impact that Scottish independence would have on the retailing industry.

Homewares Companies in the Netherlands Catering to Consumer Preferences

Homewares is in decline in the Netherlands due to consumer preference for spending smaller amounts of money on products such as glassware and dinnerware. However, new companies such as Blond Amsterdam and Babette are able to generate sales from these preferences by creating colourful, unique homewares items, at low prices.

Saudi Arabia Thrives from a Growing Retail Industry

Fatemah SherifAnalyst Insight by Fatemah Sherif - Senior Research Analyst

The retail market in Saudi Arabia has become a strong focus for the government, primarily driven by a desire to boost and maintain ongoing economic success in the country.  The Saudi Arabian retailing market was worth SAR374 billion in 2013, 12% growth from the previous year, according to Euromonitor International.  A large part of this interest comes from the government’s desire to diversify beyond the oil industry. This is seen as a means to reduce unemployment and increase average disposable income.  Already, better living conditions and higher income levels are having a positive impact on retailing.

Tourism Drives Retailing

One key factor is tourism, primarily religious tourism, as Makkah, the birthplace of the prophet Muhammad, is considered the holiest city in the religion of Islam.  International arrivals increased in 2013, reaching 18 million trips, following the massive expansion of projects at the holy mosques in Makkah, which has expanded its capacity for visitors. Furthermore, the Ministry of Haj recently gave approval to 62 travel companies to offer low-cost Hajj (pilgrimage) packages, following strong demand.  As a result, the program was expanded to accommodate 41,000 pilgrims in 2014, up from 17,000 the previous year.  Moreover, the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) is trying to drive tourism by deregulating air travel by breaking the monopoly of Saudi Arabian Airlines, inviting local and foreign airlines to operate in the country.
