Retailing in the UK registered an increase in 2014, with slightly improved economic conditions helping retailers to achieve some growth. However, once again growth was hardly spectacular – retailers had to work hard to convince shoppers to part with their money. A slightly more positive economic outlook is expected for the forecast period, encouraging a slow recovery in consumer spending in a number of retail channels.

Euromonitor International's Retailing in United Kingdom report offers insight into key trends and developments driving the industry. The report examines all retail channels to provide sector insight. Channels include hypermarkets, supermarkets, discounters, convenience stores, mixed retailers, health and beauty retailers, clothing and footwear retailers, furniture and furnishing stores, DIY and hardware stores, durable goods retailers, leisure and personal goods retailers.

There is also analysis of non-store retailing: vending; homeshopping; internet retailing; direct selling, as available.
