Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

An analysis of the common issues and trends retailers face globally in 2018 and how they need to adapt their businesses to not just thrive but also survive

Retailers globally are facing greater challenges as consumer demand has changed and created a fundamental shift in the retail sector. Retailers in mature economies are suffering from overcapacity and low growth and have to win share from competitors to survive, but are up against new entrants that are growing fast.

This webinar analyses the structural shift in retail. Changing demand and new channels leading to greater complexity and new shopping habits are examined and how retailers are facing these challenges. With a global view it shows the risks and opportunities beyond retailers’ home markets. And with GlobalData’s unique retail data we will show who the winners are in the market as well as the losers.

Attend this webinar to understand the challenges and opportunities in retail in 2018 and the trends that will impact performance .
