Global Powers of Retailing 2013
As consumers seek an integrated shopping experience across channels – and in some cases across geographies – retailers are being put to the test. How can they find a path to success that not only addresses the needs of their customers today, but is also flexible enough to continually evolve with rapidly evolving customer interest and expectations?
The 16th annual Global Powers of Retailing report identifies the 250 largest retailers around the world for the past fiscal year. But the report is much more than a list – it also examines these pressing trends for retailers to consider as they plan their growth strategies, provides a global economic outlook for retail, and discusses "Q ratio" – a way of drawing inferences about the future performance of retailers by examining current financial information.
