About This Report


Consumer goods retailers have faced a mixed market over the five years through 2012-13. Increasing demand for consumer goods in the early part of the period was aided by growth in disposable incomes, low interest rates and declining unemployment. However, the later part of the period has presented a volatile market for operators, characterised by fluctuating income, rising unemployment and unstable consumer sentiment levels, which have affected demand for a range of consumer goods. Growth in interest rates and a downturn in the domestic economy, following the collapse of global financial markets in 2008, led to a tense time for players.

Consumer goods retail covers the sale of personal and household items like clothing, furniture, hardware, computer and software, garden and pharmaceutical goods. This report does not include the sale of food, alcohol, motor vehicles nor revenue from cafes, restaurants and takeaway food stores. Retailers purchase stock from domestic or international suppliers, which are either manufacturers or wholesalers. This merchandise is then sold via stores to the public.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
