UK retail market recorded sales of over £ 246 Billion in 2004 that exceeded £ 255.56 Billion in 2006 at a CAGR of over 1.9%, according to a recent report “UK Supermarket Analysis (2007-2010)” by RNCOS.

But despite the growth in last year, retail sales in UK, surprisingly, declined strangely in April 2007, an indication that accruing interest rates, skyrocketing prices, and huge debt may have started to impact consumer spending. Sales slumped by 0.1% after a 0.5% rise in March 2007, said the Office for National Statistics on May 18, 2007 in London.

Brits are spending more on clothes and food and they may have left them with few pounds to spend on household goods. So the sales in household goods fell by over 2.67% leading to decline in overall retail sales. Sales at non-food stores descended by 0.5%, offsetting a 0.2% gain at food stores.

Dresdner Kleinwort Group Ltd economist, Marchel Alexandrovich, London, said, “Interest-rate increases will hit the consumer. When prices go up, it's more difficult to shift volumes. We expect one more rate increase in August but that's probably it”. Alexandrovich made the only prediction of a slump in sales.

However, the Bank of England is still of the view that consumer spending is ‘flexible’ and may present an ‘upside’ risk to retail sector’s growth as Brits keep shopping. Recent figures showed a rise of over 2% on the month in ‘non-store retailing and repair’ – the group that comprise of Internet retailers and catalogue based retailers. This category witnessed a hike of more than 16.8% in the first quarter of 2007 from the last year, the steepest rise since records stared in 1986.

According to the RNCOS report “UK Supermarket Analysis (2007-2010)”, the key to success in UK market is product and service innovation to retain the existing customers. However, the strategies of cost reduction by major players can be disadvantageous for the retail industry as due to this, consumers are becoming more price conscious.

The market research report prudently analyzes the UK Supermarket. The market discusses the market performance and industry analysis with focus on factors (political, economic, social, technological) affecting the market. The report also presents an overview of the drivers, challenges and opportunities for the UK Supermarket.
