Research and analysis highlights

The North American region dominates the $302.6bn global market. It delivers six out of the Top 10 performers but its typical department store model varies from other regions, being space intensive with low sales densities.

Together, North America, Japan and Europe account for $9 out of every $10 spent worldwide in department stores. After a period of subdued growth this core market is expected to produce stronger growth over the next five years.

Though China is one of the smallest markets it records the most explosive growth up 132.4% since 2001 to $4.1bn. Markets in Latin America (up 83.9%) and the rest of Australasia (up 34.2%) have also seen rapid growth.
