Retailing Growth Returns in 2010, with Pace Set to Quicken to 2015 (datagraphic)

Euromonitor International’s newly published retailing data shows that, globally, 2009 was a low point for sales growth. However, whether 2010 turns out to be the year that retailing came back from the brink or continues to face problems in the short term depends on which region is being looked at.

Sales are advancing in emerging markets, but in Western Europe and North America growth is weak. Between 2010 and 2015, this trend will remain, encouraging retailers to look for new markets to enter.
