Global Powers of Retailing 2014
Retail Beyond begins
The 17th annual Global Powers of Retailing report identifies the 250 largest retailers around the world and examines trends for retailers to consider as they plan their growth strategies; provides a global economic outlook for retail; and discusses "Q" ratio - a way of drawing inferences about the future performance of retailers based on current financial information.
This year’s report includes two exciting features. Its section on “Retail Beyond” takes a provocative look at how existing technologies could conceivably converge and further transform the already complex relationship between retailers and consumers. And, for the first time ever, the report includes a list and analysis of the world’s top 50 e-retailers.
The report is meant to serve as a baseline view of the economic outlook for the major markets and the potential impact on retailers
and their suppliers.
