Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?

“Consumer Attitudes and Online Retail Development in the UK” is the result of Canadean’s extensive market research covering the online retail industry in the UK. It provides the magnitude, growth, share, and dynamics of the online retail market in the UK. It is an essential tool for companies active across the UK’s online retail value chain and for new companies considering entry into the UK online retail market. It provides data for historic and forecast online retail sales, and also includes the business environment and country risk related to the UK online retail environment.By examining best practice from leading national large-scale online retailers (but specifically excluding the likes of Amazon whose sites are well-known and vary little by country), as well as reviewing innovative approaches from smaller companies, the report provides insights and ideas about how best to approach growing online sales for your business. Business Report

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

A unique feature in the UK online retail market is the popularity and success of traditional mail–order businesses to adapt to online retail. As a result, companies compete with physical store retailers in markets previously considered incompatible with the online retail format.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Consumers have been reacting to the effects of the global recession, including the following recovery period, on their discretionary spending and retail markets have been no exception. While the country by country market changes have varied, nowhere has been left totally untouched.This report quantitatively examines the components of change in the market by looking at historic and future growth patterns including how changes in consumer behaviour have affected the online retail sector for different product categories.
