Our annual global examination of retailer presence and expansion surveys 326 major international retailers across 73 countries and records the evolution of the global retail market. The survey identifies the most active international retailers and their top target markets at country and city level in 2011. For the first time, we identify the global hotspots for shopping centre development and explore the importance of new centres in attracting cross-border retailers. Last year’s ground-breaking research on the online capability of retailers has also been updated, revealing retailers’ online target markets and how multi-channel retailing is developing in different countries.
