Industry news and transformation

An impressive transformation

The retail sector has undergone many changes in recent years. E-commerce has taken a leading role in the market, with constant growth since 2010. According to Fevad, online sales increased by 13.4% in 2020, with a total turnover of 112.2 billion euros.


The development of click-and-collect and home delivery has also become an important change in the retail sector. The health crisis has accelerated this transformation by reinforcing the digitalisation of the sector and changing consumer habits.

Challenges for retail leaders

Leaders in the sector must reinvent themselves to attract an increasingly demanding clientele. They need to offer a quality customer experience in-store, online and outside the point of sale. Finally, ecological issues are also increasingly important, and consumers are more and more aware of the environmental impact of their consumption and expect retailers to take these issues into account in their strategy.
