The department store market is forecast to expand by 21.7% between 2011 and 2015, with increases
expected across all regions except Japan. Growth in the core markets of Europe and North America will
be subdued between 2011 and 2015, with CAGRs of 1.3% and 1.6% respectively, due to weak economic
environments and growing uncertainty.
As consumer sentiment in the US has become negative, with consumers unwilling to pay full price on
goods, retailers have tried to appeal to these consumers by opening discount outlets. These allow the
retailer to offload old stock and attract new customers; however it is important that the discount format
complements traditional full-priced stores.
The Japanese market is mature, and its decline has been exacerbated by recent natural disasters,
leading to a fall in tourism and reduced spending by domestic consumers. Further declines in spending
through the department store channel are forecast for the next four years, resulting in Japan accounting
for just 12.4% of the global market in 2015.
