About the Retail and Fashion Industry in New Zealand

New Zealand's retail industry is now worth $92.3 billion a year.

 

While online retail sales are set to increase significantly, experts predict that in 10 years time there will still be a large offering of bricks and mortar stores.

By 2030, Retail NZ predicts a figure of $120.6b in annual retail sales, with 13% of retail spending done through online transactions. 50% of transactions online will be with offshore retailers.

The Future of Retail and Fashion

The domestic supermarket sector will experience strong growth while books, clothing and footwear will likely be dominated by international merchants. Meanwhile, domestic retailers operating online will continue to operate in a highly competitive global playing field, and 'being found' online will be essential.

In 10 years time successful retailers will be designing and manufacturing their own branded products, competing with manufacturers seeking to retail their products direct to consumers, and adapting to consumers' desire for ethical and sustainable products.

Retailers of the future, whether online or in-store, will need to be highly responsive to consumer demands for service and products. Furthermore, online platforms will allow retailers to understand and keep up with customer demand like they never have before.

 

The Clothing Retailing industry has grown over the past five years, despite challenging retail conditions. Industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 0.2% over the five years through 2018-19, to total $2.5 billion.

 

Positive consumer sentiment and rising household disposable incomes have supported revenue growth over the period. When consumer sentiment is positive, people are typically more optimistic about their current financial situation, resulting in increased expenditure on products such as clothing.
