“E-retail in the UK – 2017“, report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the online channel in the UK, the main trends and hot issues, major players and consumer shopping behaviour. It also provides forecasts to 2022 across key retail sectors.
The online retail sector will continue to experience strong growth over the next five years, propping up the UK retail market. Growth in the online channel will be driven by clothing & footwear, with sales forecast to rise 55.2% over the next five years. The continued success of fast fashion online pureplays and retailers’ investment in improving customer experience will ensure clothing & footwear remains a driving force within the online channel.
Despite the online channel providing a lifeline to multichannel retailers who are experiencing tough offline sales, e-retail imposes challenges such as the management of returned stock and the continuous need to innovate to offer fast and low cost fulfilment options. Online returns are forecast to grow at practically the same rate as online spend driven by consumers becoming more confident with free and simple returns processes offered by retailers along with the rise of delivery saver schemes.
The report provides in-depth analysis of the following –

– Sales via smartphone are a key area of growth for the online channel over the next five years; with spend via mobile set to grow 112.0%, overtaking tablet sales in 2018. Mobile growth is predominantly driven by food & grocery and clothing & footwear sectors, with the latter category aided by the ‘see now, buy now’ mentality of consumers frequently browsing social media. Retailers should prioritise investment in mobile platforms and apps to capitalise on the forecast growth in mobile spend.
– Due to its fast online growth, clothing & footwear will further dominate the online returns market, with the category forecast to account for almost 70% of all online returns by 2022. Clothing & footwear retailers must enhance the way products are displayed online to curtail the anticipated rise in returns, using by video content, higher image quality and styled model images.
– Consumers are increasingly shopping online in order to access a wider of products. This year 17.2% of consumers stated they shopped online because a product was not available elsewhere, which was up 1.6 ppts on last year. This is driven by successful online pureplays ASOS and Amazon, the latter using its Marketplace and Handmade platform to supply customers with a huge assortment, with many items unavailable in UK physical stores. Multichannel players should use their online platforms to showcase an extended collection, enabling them to trial ranges, with a view to allocate store space if online sales warrant this.

The another report on “The UK Sports Market 2017 – 2022“, report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the sportswear, bicycles and sports equipment market, the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the hot issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts to 2022, retailer profiles, retailer market shares and consumer shopping habits and spending motivations.
Product categories covered in the report include: sports clothing, sports footwear, bicycles, golf, fitness equipment, camping, fishing, balls, skates, water sports, rackets and other sports.
In 2017 and 2018 price inflation combined with weak consumer confidence and squeezed disposable incomes will cause more subdued volume growth in sports equipment. However, in contrast sales growth in the sportswear and bicycles segments are forecast to outperform, up 6.4% and 8.7% respectively in 2017. The continued shift in consumers prioritising spend on leisure, entertainment, health and wellness over core retail sectors benefits on-trend sports and activities with limited overhead costs, so sportswear and cycling retailers are uniquely placed to take advantage of this change in spending behaviour.

– The on-going athleisure trend remains pivotal to the growth of the sports market as sportswear makes up over half of the total UK sports market and is expected to consistently outperform the overall sports market over the next five years.
– The £0.4bn growth forecast in bicycles can be attributed to government’s £1.2bn pledge to make cycling and walking the natural choice for short distances and the ongoing success of the British cycling team driving participation levels. Retailer investment in social engagement and consumer willingness to share goals and achievements will also encourage loyalty to the sport.
– Sports Direct maintains its position as the leading UK retailer for sports. However, it is under threat after failing to react fast enough to the athleisure trend and the rising consumer demand for more fashionable sportswear. As a result it is losing market share to Amazon, ASOS, H&M and its closest rival JD Sports.
– The gender spilt of sports shoppers is narrowing as more women buy into the sector. The health and wellness trend combined with greater accessibility of affordable, trend-led sportswear has driven this shift.
– Online spend on sports will grow by £1.8bn as Amazon and ASOS fuel penetration due to the greater accessibility of third party brands and the grocers and department stores reducing sports ranges instore. In stark contrast is the performance of physical stores where sales will fall 3.4% in the five years to 2022 – led by the sports equipment and bicycles categories.
