Reports & Presentations

While the worldwide grocery market did not descend into chaos, 2009 was undoubtedly an extremely tough year for the retail market. In addition, it was a year where many companies looked to consolidate and improve the efficiencies of their current operations rather than blindly expanding.

The electronics, entertainment and office (EEO) sector was hit harder than most, due to the reduction of spending on non-discretionary and big ticket items. However, it was the health and beauty sector which proved resilient with consumers indulging in the occasional small luxuries in a bid to lift the gloom.

This report is based on Planet Retail's Top 20 global and regional grocery, EEO, health and beauty and foodservice rankings for 2009. Using 2009 and 2014 forecast data, the report analyses the winners and losers, identifies rising stars and forecasts any shifts in the rankings over the next five years.
