UK Retail- the impact of on line. A case study in disruptive technology

This note provides an in depth study of the impact on on line retail on the retail sector as a whole. It analyses growth trends and concludes, although the UK has the highest on line penetration rate in the world, further cannibalisation will occur before equilibrium is met. While the impact on retail profitability is asymmetric further aggregate pressure on margins is likely. Please contact us for a copy of the note.
