Each year, A. T. Kearney reports its Global Retail Development Index, which provides a great look at retail opportunities around the world.
As Kearney notes in reporting its 2013 index:
“Retailers are taking a step back from rapid expansion strategies as they move into developing markets. The 2013 A.T. Kearney Global Retail Development Index (GRDI) reflects some important changes to the retail environment. But one thing hasn’t changed: As developed markets face flat or anemic growth, developing markets remain important sources of growth. The 12th annual edition of the GRDI finds many opportunities for retailers seeking to grow and expand in fast-growing developing markets big and small.”
