The global specialty retail industry is anticipated to witness uncertain growth owing to macroeconomic factors such as higher disposable income, consumer spending, and GDP. The specialty retail industry is highly fragmented and typically consists of specialty stores, fuel, and automotive retailing. Additionally, the rapidly growing middle class, well-developed financing and credit facilities, availability of trained workforce at a competitive cost, and market-oriented stable economy are also expected to boost the market size of the specialty retail industry. However, according to the market measurement experts, it has been noted that the competitiveness in this segment is high and the barriers to entry are low. Furthermore, the high degree of inflation, price competition, supply chain, and efficient inventory management are expected to pose a challenge for the industry.
Consequently, to accurately measure the market size, companies operating in the specialty retail industry have started leveraging the use of robust market measurement studies. Market measurement studies provide firms operating in the specialty retail space a firm baseline for marketing activities.
