Travel Retail in the United Kingdom - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Sep 05 2014

Travel retail sales rose by 2% to GBP31 billion in 2013, posting a second consecutive year of growth as the UK economy recovers and consumer confidence rises. However, the growth rate remained modest as people continued to try to economise and opt for low-cost solutions and last-minute deals. Although the economic outlook has improved, demand remains stagnant and consumer cautious, as wages have not yet caught up with inflation. In this context, value for money is a priority for consumers. Domestic trips declined slightly, partly as the trend for the staycation, which experienced a boost during the credit crunch has worn off, and partly because often travelling abroad to destinations such as Spain, Greece or Turkey on a packaged deal can be considerably cheaper than holidaying in Britain. This way, the number of trips outbound went up by 2% in 2013.

Industry Prospects

Sales of travel retail products are expected to increase over the forecast period, albeit at a modest pace, rising at a CAGR of 1% at constant 2013 prices. Consumers are expected to remain price conscious and they will continue to search for value-for-money deals that suit them the most. The economic outlook improved in the second part of 2013, which led to a rise in consumer confidence; however, the recovery seems to have been driven by a higher level of consumer debt, thus there is some doubt about how long the recovery can be sustained. Inflation is set to return to 2% in 2014, but wages have failed to rise to catch up the ground lost during the economic downturn, thus, in this context it is expected that consumers will continue to look for last-minute deals and try to economise on holiday expenditure.
