Executive Summary

Feb 2019
PROSPECTS
Consumer habits change in favour of large chained players

Small independent apparel and footwear retailing outlets are traditionally very popular in Serbia. However, during the review period, this quickly changed in favour of large international and domestic chains.

Outlet number and selling space accelerate growth in 2018

The number of outlets and, as a consequence, selling space of Serbian apparel and footwear specialist retailers grew visibly in 2018. This was linked to the increasing number of outlets by several chains that usually have larger outlets, such as Metro Obuca and LC Waikiki.

Internet retailing becomes increasingly important competitor, albeit slowly

It is worth noting that internet retailing in general and specifically when it comes to apparel and footwear sales, is becoming increasingly popular among Serbian consumers. This is more important with apparel than footwear because most consumers still want to try on shoes prior to purchase, although this does not appear to be as important with some types of apparel.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
LC Waikiki Retail RS takes over leading position

In 2018, Turkish international chain LC Waikiki took over the leading position in a highly fragmented landscape within Serbian apparel and footwear specialist retailers. The chain arrived in the country in 2015, when it opened two outlets, growing to 22 in 2018.

Share of others continues to drop

Apparel and footwear specialist retailers is extremely fragmented. Nevertheless, this has been slowly changing throughout the review period and the trend continued in 2018, where the share of others lost strong value share and marginal share in terms of selling space.

Number of outlets remains balanced

Contrary to value sales and selling space, the outlet share of others within Serbian apparel and footwear specialist retailers remained stable in 2018, with small players continuing to open new stores.
