Strong and steady
Since Asia's successful passage through the global financial crisis, multinational retail and consumer products firms have broadened and deepened their interest in the region, and with good reason. Asian markets proved remarkably resilient through the economic downturn and continued healthy growth over the next five years looks almost certain.
This report, produced in cooperation with the Economist Intelligence Unit, discusses the outlook for six retail and consumer products sub-sectors in Asia: food and general retail, fashion and apparel, online retailing, fast-moving consumer goods, luxury brands, and durable consumer goods and electronics. It focuses, in particular, on China, Hong Kong, India, Japan and Taiwan, and looks at how the industry has fared in 2010, how it is expected to grow through 2014, and opportunities and challenges moving forward.
