Description

The UK Retail Ranking report provides the most current and comprehensive analysis of the UK Retail Market, focusing on sale densities, performance and innovations of leading retailers and categories within the UK retail market during the 2020/21 financial year. Mintel’s UK Retail Ranking report explores 2020/21 contextual information and discusses the impact on market size, market forecast, market segmentation and industry trends for the Retail Market in the UK.

Current Landscape

Even in a restriction-free environment, the scars from COVID-19 are still present. The start of 2022 signalled the first full year of unrestricted trade since the pandemic began in 2020. After online claimed the majority of non-food demand in Q4 2020 and Q1 2021, some rebalancing has already started, with more demand returning to physical stores. While we may be in a restriction-free market, behaviours engrained over the past two years will take time to ease or could even remain engrained.

The income squeeze will likely cause permanent closures in the retail sector since consumers are facing a multitude of pressures on spending in 2022. The combination of rapidly rising inflation, national insurance and interest rates will naturally cause consumers to cut back or be more cautious with their retail spending habits in 2022.

Expert Analysis from a Specialist in the Field

This report, written by Neil Mason, a leading senior analyst in the Retail sector, delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

“The 2022 Retail Rankings covers the period that the retail sector battled with trading through the peak of the pandemic.  The combination of the online channel giving continued access to consumers and governmental support mitigated the full brunt of the pandemic for retailers. Indeed those businesses that failed largely did so due to COVID-19 and its repercussions exacerbating pre-existing underlying issues. Although we now enter a ‘restriction-less’ environment, the removal of support combined with the income squeeze and greater competition for spending make the market no-less difficult for retailers to navigate.”
