Current Retail Landscape

Year-on-year there has been little change in the names operating within the top ten of UK retail, but there has been notable movement in positions. Amazon is now the second largest retailer in the UK. Aldi has overtaken Morrisons to become the fifth largest player in the grocery market. Value-led behaviours and store-expansion, mean Aldi will break the ‘traditional big-four grocery multiples’, a remarkable achievement.

M&S has regained its position as the eighth largest retailer in the UK, a reflection of market trends where stronger demand for clothing helped to recover some lost ground for M&S.

Expert Insights from a Retail Analyst

This report, written by Nick Carroll, a leading research analyst, delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight trends in UK retail market and add expert context to the numbers.

The 2023 UK Retail Rankings reviews a diverse period, from the Q1 2021 lockdown through to society emerging from the peak of the pandemic and then into the early stages of the cost of living crisis. Rising inflation, while far from the peak we have experienced in 2022/23, underpinned consumers’ hesitancy towards retail spending, while retail faced greater competition for spend from other consumer-facing industries, particularly travel and leisure, with consumers keen to make up for lost time. The bright spots came on the high-street as footfall recovered, and in fashion with a return to socialising and a faster pace of life bringing demand back to the category.”
