Global retail trends 2022

Toby Pickard
Global Insight Leader

We highlight five key trends that we expect to shape the global retail market over the next 12 months and beyond. Each trend is brought to life by using case studies that progressive retailers have already implemented, and we use these examples along with our in-depth retailer, regional and shopper knowledge to predict what we think will be key strategic priorities for retailers in 2022.

The five trends we have predicted are:

  1. Dealing with disruption - Building in resilience 
  2. Physical fights back - Enhancing the physical store 
  3. Quick commerce evolution - The future route of rapid delivery
  4. Restoration retail - Better for planet and the people
  5. Powering up profitability - Utilising technology to improve profit
