The Global Powers of Retailing
industry is emerging from one of the most tumultuous
economic years in recent memory. The 13th annual edition
of the Global Powers of Retailing looks at which
retailers have pulled through, which ones haven’t, which
individual retail segments have struggled most, and
which ones seem to have weathered the crisis– and why.
The report, produced by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu in
conjunction with STORES Media, ranks the world's top 250
retailers and augments that with a look at global
markets, the annual Q ratio rating, and insights on
what's ahead for the retail industry.
Highlights to this year’s report:
Emerging market retailers are set to take on
established players – the playing field for retail
is levelling off.
spending growth in markets such as the US and UK is
likely to be slower over the next decade, while a
larger share of the growth will take place in
countries with large surpluses, especially the big
retailers have yet to make an online push as social
networking sites start to make an impact.
