The magazine covers the gamut of Indian and International movements in retail technology, logistics and supply chain, store formats, store design, retail real estate, franchising and human resource, besides reporting on significant directions within India’s sunrise industry. The magazine is widely acknowledged India’s leading retail intelligence publication for decades now, providing news, insights, research & analysis, intelligence and data covering retail operations across all Indian markets. The mission of the monthly B2B magazine – published exclusively for the retail industry – is to bring industry leaders and brand owners up to date with the latest in retail technology & innovations, provide them with in-depth research, studies and analytical, insightful features which help them grow their businesses in India. The magazine aims to spark ideas and shape agendas for decision makers in India’s competitive retail industry.
E-commerce, which was a decade ago considered an indolent aspect of the unorganised Indian retail industry, has today become the platform on which the wheel of the industry runs. In a span of approximately 10 years, e-commerce has played a major role in organising the industry and also making it more convenient and accessible for the users. The additional infl uence of the cyberspace has enabled e-commerce to reach and make an impact even in rural areas as well. Currently, Indian e-commerce market is expected to grow to US$ 200 billion by 2026 from US$ 38.5 billion in 2017. By 2021 India is expected to generate $100 billion online retail revenue out of which $35 billion will be through fashion e-commerce. Online apparel sales are also set to grow 4X in the coming years. The July edition of IMAGES Retail brings its readers the complete story on why this enormous demand has caused companies to be more creative in terms of reaching audiences online by introducing new and innovative technologies. The cover story will go over the impact of e-commerce, the role of Omnichannel services in luring modern consumers and how AI, VR and other innovations have impacted the e-commerce industry. The issue also brings readers up to speed with the top innovations by leading brands to add more footfalls and revenue in their respective stores. In other news, we have introduced a new ‘Retail Design’ in which we bring our readers a roundup on how Shoppers Stop has turned its fortunes by focusing on good visual merchandising.
