LATEST REPORTS
Business growth mergers and takeovers in the retail sector

The retail market for consumer goods in South Africa is attracting the interest of international businesses looking to expand after mergers and takeovers and will likely contribute to business growth in the retail sector.

South African retailers are expected to benefit from the increased interest and investments of international companies.

According to the Euromonitoring International Report on Retailing in South Africa, “this should lead to more partnerships with international brands over the forecast period, thus allowing domestic retailers to strengthen their leading positions.”

Not only will international investment strengthen the leading positions of domestic retailers, but it will also provide an economic and productivity boost in a time when inflation and rising prices are making consumer expenses higher than ever. Still, the disposable incomes of South Africa’s massive population continue to rise, while consumers buy more and more retail goods, including electronics and cars.
