Retail 2020: The Future of Shopping
Retail 2020: Fast-forward four years from now and we’ll see a very different set of shoppers who have adopted a very different way of shopping.
Just in the last 12 months, new technology and evolving shopping habits are transforming retail.
Social-driven sales and referral traffic have risen at a faster pace than all other online channels. Now one in three shoppers already use mobile wallets and contactless transactions for the first half of 2015 were already higher than the £2.32bn spent in 2014.
The backdrop to all of this has been slow yet steady growth. And there are plenty of reasons to remain optimistic. Analysts predict global retail sales will make a healthy jump, worth just short of 17 trillion pounds by 2019. And a new wave of innovation in both digital and bricks-and-mortar retail turns challenges into opportunities in markets across the world.
A rich culture of change combined with economic growth makes retail an exciting place to be. To keep on top and compete effectively, marketers must have their eye on the future and this is where Retail 2020 can help.
