Report on Retailing in France announces a report on “Retailing in France – Market Summary & Forecasts; Comprehensive overview of the market, consumer, and competitive context, with retail sales value and forecasts to 2020”. Market insights based on consumer trends, changing economic and demographic factors, technology innovations, and other macroeconomic factors.


Total retail sales in France witnessed positive growth over the historic period, which is further expected to continue to 2020. However, rising concerns around unemployment and the country’s financial crisis had a major influence on consumer confidence, which reduced consumer spending levels. Demand for products reduced to some extent as consumers limited their spending to daily essentials. In spite of the slow growth of total retail sales, the online retail channel is poised to witness a considerable CAGR of 10.9% over the next five years, on the back of increasing penetration of internet, mobile, and broadband users.
