"Home and Garden Specialist Retailers in Russia" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Aug 21 2015

Retail current value sales growth of home and garden specialist retailers fell from 10% in 2013 to 8% in 2014. Economic slowdown, decrease of investment flow and limited lending opportunities for business in Russia created unfavourable conditions for the channelís dynamic development.

Competitive Landscape

During 2014, competition among home and garden specialist retailers escalated. While multinational players continued to expand in smaller cities in Russiaís regions, a range of local companies had to leave the market unable to survive price wars from hypermarkets. To resist increasing competition, regional chained retailers had to review their strategies and focus on cost optimisation. Among possible solutions, companies emphasised the development of direct imports, an increase in supply share of Russian manufacturers, optimisation of product range with shift to medium and economy segments, and development of online sales. The channelís competitive environment remained highly fragmented in 2014. Value share of others reached 75% and volume share of 90% for outlets. The top nine home and garden specialist retailers combined to generate 23% share of total retail value sales, which was marginally higher than in 2013.
