The full report

In one of the most comprehensive analyses of global online retailing carried out to date, the inaugural Global Perspective on Retail report examines online retailing and looks at the technological infrastructure, regulatory environment and size of the retail and online market in more than 100 countries to compile a weighted index developed from 13 separate indicators.

We have firstly looked at the factors that are driving and constraining the growth of e-commerce in the retail market and how this growth varies globally. We have then considered the implications of online retailing for physical retail space and looked at how shopping centre owners and managers are either adapting to or leading the new market.

The information in the report comes from a variety of sources, with market trends and characteristics based on a survey of Cushman & Wakefield offices undertaken by our global research team and internet retail sales data from Euromonitor International. We are also indebted to a number of leading shopping centre operators for their input, notably Westfield (Australia) and intu (UK), who are included as case studies.
