Mumbai, India (PressExposure) October 21, 2009 -- Report on Indian Banking Sector report ( [http://www.bharatbook.com/Market-Research-Reports/Report-On-Indian-Retail-Industry.html] ) The initial stages of the report deals with the history of global retailing with a special focus on the major global players driving the retail growth. Retailing, in a laymanâs language involves the procurement of varied products in large quantities from various sources/producers and their sales in small lot for direct consumption to the purchaser. Retailing can broadly be classified into: organised and unorganised retail. Unorganised retailing refers to the traditional form of retailing with the retail outlets situated near the residential are as while organised retailing refers to the modern form of retailing with trading activities undertaken by licensed retailers generally located in commercial establishments/high-street areas.
The Indian retail industry has strong linkages with the economic growth and development of the economy. It is primarily characterised by its hierarchical growth structure, high working capital requirements etc. The factors such as rising urbanisation, growing consumer class, growing per capita expenditure, greater interest evinced by the Venture capitalists / Private equity firms in the industry etc. have been driving the growth of organised retail. The growth of modern retailing has led to the emergence of varied formats such as Departmental stores, Supermarkets etc. In addition, few other formats such as rural retailing, E-retailing, luxury retailing etc. too have found favours with the Indian retailers. Each format being distinct from the other, the viability of their operations depends upon various factors such as average footfalls, sales per sq.ft etc. However the numerous licensing requirements as compared to other countries have proved to be a bottleneck in the growth of Indian retailing.
With subdued consumer sentiments as witnessed during the latter half of FY09, CARE Research expects the Indian Retail industryâs performance to remain steady during FY09. However considering the immense potentialities, the industry would witness robust performance in the long run.
