The unemployment rate remained low in 2016, helping consumers to feel confident about the economy; in turn benefiting retailers. Retailers operating in the US continued to focus on offering competitive prices through a variety of seamlessly integrated purchasing platforms. These factors had a beneficial effect on the performance of retailing in the US in 2016.

Pursuit of omnichannel proficiency intensifies


Alongside global retailing, the US retail landscape is evolving quickly, with the rise of omnichannel retailing. Omnichannel retailing is a customer-centric, channel-agnostic approach to retailing, through which retailers provide a seamless shopping experience across all of their physical and digital channels. Shoppers increasingly value convenience when shopping, and omnichannel capabilities allow them to seamlessly switch from one channel to another. By the end of 2016, the vast majority of retailers operating in the US were struggling to be omnichannel. The most common challenges that retailers face include tracking sales, inventory planning, overcoming organisational barriers and legacy technology, last mile delivery, providing secure methods of payment and appropriately adapting their physical stores. Retailers will continue their quest to achieve omnichannel proficiency in the forecast period.

The competition continues between grocery and non-grocery retailers


Companies continue to focus on having a presence in various channels and expanding to offer added convenience. Retailers from both grocery and non-grocery channels are adapting to the demands of the modern and digital world to offer convenience, leading to channel blurring, as well as advances in various online commerce options. For example, the availability of grocery products through variety stores and drugstores increased. These retailers are focused on attracting consumers into stores by becoming one-stop outlets where consumers can get most of the products they need for their household. In a similar way, internet retailers such as Amazon, Walmart and Peapod provided options for faster delivery and/or click-and-collect services in 2016.

Consolidation continues in retailing in the US


In 2016, retailing in the US witnessed a trend towards further consolidation. For example, in September 2016 Walmart completed the acquisition of internet retailer Jet.com. In the non-grocery channel, Bed Bath & Beyond acquired online retailer One Kings Lane. Drugstore/parapharmacy retailer Walgreens Boots Alliance is still in the process of acquiring Rite Aid due to regulatory approval. If successful, the acquisition would unite the first and third largest drugstore chains, and the combined company would control nearly half of sales in drugstores/ parapharmacies in the US. This consolidation trend continued as companies sought to expand not only into different retail channels, but also within their core business areas.

Digital technology, innovation and pricing to drive growth in retailing


Retailers operating in the US are likely to continue to face tough competition due to increased demands from consumers in terms of both convenient fulfilment options and choice in terms of payment and prices. Digital technology is expected to be one of the key drivers of growth, because consumers are becoming increasingly dependent on their digital devices to make purchases. Innovation around conversational commerce (Amazon’s Echo devices), and other emerging commerce platforms, such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and connected wearables and cars, will yield new opportunities for retailers. Furthermore, innovation in terms of payment, store format and delivery are likely to continue to favour those retailers which are best able to adapt.
