The significant evolution of retail has been most evident in the US and UK, but is rippling out across Europe. We identify the key trends, challenges and opportunities by sector and region and analyse the level of disruption they may experience in the short to medium term (next 2-3 years).
For each retail segment we have assessed the relative risk of disruption based on the collective opinions of our local offices and have graded them according to:
Very Low, Low, Medium, High, Very High.
The regions are comprised as:
North Western Europe: UK, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden.
Southern Europe: Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain.
Central & Eastern Europe: Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Turkey.
