Retail Sector Risk Report

Overview

Global retail sales, including online sales, are expected to continue to grow in 2018, reaching just over USD 28 trillion compared to around USD 26.8 trillion in 2017.

To cope with these challenges, traditional players are being forced to rethink their strategies, including greater segmentation of supply and a move towards concept stores to maximise the customer experience over. Another underlying trend is the convergence (partly through buy-back operations) of online retailers and traditional sales groups.
