The Hong Kong Retail Report examines the long-term potential of the local consumer market, but flags short-term concerns about the impact on Hong Kong's economic outlook of falling property prices.

The report examines how best to maximise returns in the Hong Kong retail market while minimising investment risk, and also explores the impact of the slowdown in the eurozone and US on the Hong Kong consumer and on the ability of producers and exporters to realise returns in the short term.

The report also analyses the growth and risk management strategies being employed by the leading players in the Hong Kong retail sector, as they seek to maximise the growth opportunities offered by the local market.

Hong Kong comes fourth out of seven in BMI's Asia Retail risk/reward ratings, although it outperforms significantly for risk.

Among all retail categories, over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals will be the outperformer through to 2016 in growth terms, with sales forecast to increase by 28% between 2013 and 2017, from US$0.31bn to US$0.39bn as locally involved companies take advantage of growth in the mainland Chinese drug market.
