Published: September 2016
No. of Pages: 136


Total retail sales in France witnessed positive growth over the historic period, which is further expected to continue to 2020. However, rising concerns around unemployment and the country's financial crisis had a major influence on consumer confidence, which reduced consumer spending levels. Demand for products reduced to some extent as consumers limited their spending to daily essentials. In spite of the slow growth of total retail sales, the online retail channel is poised to witness a considerable CAGR of 10.9% over the next five years, on the back of increasing penetration of internet, mobile, and broadband users.

Key Findings
