Top 5 Retail Market Vendors in Australia, According to Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent retail market in Australia report until 2020. This research report also lists 23 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

With only 16% of the global top 250 retailers currently operating in the Australian market, there is high potential for international players to enter the market. “In 2015, top international players such as H&M registered revenue sales increase of over 60% compared to its previous year. Similarly, the sales of Zara increased to around 25% by value sales in the year that ended on January 2016,” says Poonam Saini, a lead retail goods and services analyst at Technavio.

Competitive vendor landscape

The retail market in Australia is highly competitive and fragmented due to the presence of both international and local players operating across the country. With the rising competition, vendors are bringing in innovative products to meet the changing consumer demands and to increase their customer base. The competition is expected to intensify during the forecast period, with the entry of several new players, price wars, and mergers and acquisitions.

The online retail platform will play a key role in the growth of the retail market in the coming years. The depreciation of the Australian dollar will be another key factor and can act as a market challenge.
