(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of "Retail in Ukraine 2014: Market Analysis And Development Forecasts For 2014-2019" research report to their offering.
The Ukrainian retail market is treated with caution by both retailers and investors. Many aspects, such as negative demographic trends, limited potential for growth of household income in the light of uncertain economic and political circumstances, as well as uncertain legal, regulatory and tax environment, have to be considered. At the same time, Ukraine has a large and relatively unsaturated market in terms of modern retail. This offers a potential for gain. Additionally, further steps towards the EU integration, if affirmed, would be a positive sign and would encourage international retailers.
This report focuses on the Ukrainian retail industry, providing data on market size and value of key retail segments - grocery, clothing and footwear, DIY, consumer electronics, and cosmetics and toiletries. It reviews economic and demographic data and relates it to retail market performance, and analyses the effects of trends on predicted market development.
