Research and analysis highlights
The economic downturn, maturing online market and the deterioration of traditional mail order channels, is seeing remote shopping growth slow. Though outperforming overall retail, set to decline by 0.4% in 2009, for the second consecutive year growth is expected to slow, falling from its peak of 20.1% in 2007 to 7.4% in 2009 and 7.2% in 2010.
With mail order specialists facing stronger competition and their customer base diminishing as spend migrates online, their share of the remote shopping market has fallen from 95.5% to 36.7% since 1998. At the same time, the agency market continues its freefall, with the channel now worth less than a quarter of its value in 1999.
Of the three components of remote retail, online makes by far the largest, contributing £20.8bn of the total £27.0bn. As online asserts its dominance, market dynamics have changed, with other channels such as mail order being used as marketing tools to compel, entice and engage with consumers, providing a vital link in multichannel integration.
