Shop NEXT 2020
October 28 - October 30
Asia’s grocery market will be the largest in the world with predicted 6.3 percent of compound annual growth rate, up to US$4.8 trillion by 2021. Of that, the convenience store sector will see double-digit compound annual growth in the next four years. “Among all the brick-and-mortar grocery channels, convenience shows the strongest growth prospects in Asia, thanks to rapid urbanisation, a growing young population and greater levels of disposable income,” says Nick Miles, head of Asia-Pacific at IGD.
The Thai Retailers Association (TRA) said in its report that the Retail & Wholesale sector is directly responsible for 15.6 percent of Thailand’s GDP, second after the industrial sector. The retail market has been expanding from 7.6 billion baht in 1993 to 3.6 trillion baht in 2018. Thailand is one of the fastest-growing retail industries in Southeast Asia. The booming tourism industry is also driving the rapid development of the retail market.
