Retailers sell to consumers, either goods or services, through distribution channels where the demand goes through a supply chain. Orders are typically small from consumer/or “end user” compared with wholesale, corporate or government clientele. This is also sometime referred to as shopping.

Digital technologies are changing the way that consumers pay for goods and services. A clearly developed supply chain, integrated IT support system and Internet presence is essential for most retail-focused companies today.

Consumer spending, which typically accounts for around two-thirds of the GDP, is a key indicator of the health of the retail market. Moreover, the increasing strength of online shopping has been a major driver. Apart from this, the growing smartphone penetration across countries is driving the e-commerce channel, including IoT that is reshaping the retail industry.
