Off the rack: Continued retail outlet growth is forecast to contribute to industry declines



Abstract

Department Stores in the US

The Department Stores industry will continue its long-term decline over the five years to 2016, with revenue expected to fall at an annualized rate of 3.5% to $164.9 billion. While rising competition from e-commerce has accelerated declines, revenue contraction is primarily attributable to the increasing number of major players that have expanded their product range to include groceries, which transitions their revenue to the Warehouse Clubs and Supercenters industry (IBISWorld report 45291). Over the five years to 2021, increased competition from e-commerce businesses and the continued transition of department stores to supercenters will pressure industry revenue. However, improved consumer spending and disposable income will encourage consumers to spend more at department stores, which will offset some of the period's declines.

Department stores retail a broad range of general merchandise, such as apparel, jewelry, cosmetics, home furnishings, general household products, toys, appliances and sporting goods. Discount department stores, which are also included in this industry, retail similar lines of goods at low prices. However, big-box retailers and supercenters that offer fresh groceries in their stores, and warehouse clubs that operate under membership programs, are not included in this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
