GfK study on key retail indicators: 2018 review and 2019 forecast
The study offers an overview of the most important indicators for European retail in 2019. This includes an analysis of purchasing power and store-based turnover as well as their respective shares of private consumption. Additionally, the study illuminates trends in consumer prices and sales area provision.
One crisis follows the next. While retailers faced nationwide lockdowns, restrictions based on testing, vaccination, or recovery, and already disrupted supply chains last year, the war in Ukraine is bringing the issue of “consumer pricing” to the forefront. Additionally, supply chain disruptions and record energy prices are leading to unseen inflation rates in many European countries for several decades.
The Polish investment market has quickly adjusted to the changes caused by the pandemic. The retail market is still spearheaded by retail parks, which have been increasingly popular among investors for the past three years.
