Asia-Pacific Retail Handbook - June 2012

This is the eighth edition of the Asia-Pacific Retail Handbook and, like its predecessors, it is designed to complement the European Retail Handbook. This year’s Asia-Pacific Retail Handbook follows the format of last year’s with profiles of the top 20 retailers in the region and a survey of 16 countries.

Markets covered include:

  • Australia
  • China
  • Hong Kong*
  • Indonesia
  • India
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • Taiwan
  • Thailand
  • The Philippines
  • Pakistan
  • Vietnam
  • Sri Lanka.

* Hong Kong is included as a separate “country” as, despite the fact that it is now part of China, it remains a separate market, with distinct boundaries, laws, regulations and currency.

The coverage is not exhaustive but the list reflects the countries where there is a sufficiently developed retail market.

We include profiles on:

  • Aeon
  • Bailian
  • Dairy Farm
  • Dashgang
  • Familymart
  • Gome
  • Isetan
  • J.Front
  • Lawson
  • Lotte shopping
  • RT Mart
  • Seven & I
  • Suning
  • Tesco
  • The Daiei
  • Uny
  • Walmart
  • Wesfarmers
  • Woolworths
  • Yamada

These profiles provide detail on the activities of the companies, including five-year financial performance, where available, and development in the store network, an overview of the retail offering and any e-commerce activities within the Asia-Pacific region.

For each country and company we have endeavoured to make the data contained in this report as comparable as possible. However, inevitably there are differences in the way in which data is reported and the frequency of publication so this has not always been possible.
