Asia-Pacific Retail Scoreboard: Key Findings

Euromonitor International Profile Picture
Euromonitor International Bio

Euromonitor International is pleased to once again partner with Retail Asia as the official information provider for the 12th edition of the Retail Asia-Pacific Top 500 rankings. In 2014, the leading 500 retailers in Asia Pacific had sales of US$1.1 trillion, an increase of 2%. The rise of the Chinese retail market has led to Chinese companies to dominate the list, accounting for 32% of the ranking. In absolute terms, five of the top ten fastest growing companies in absolute terms were Chinese hypermarkets. However, Japanese companies are still significant because they operate in a consolidated market and have expanded to many countries within the region.


7-Eleven Japan retains the top spot on the ranking of Asia Pacific’s top 500 retailers, which was published in conjunction by Euromonitor International and Retail Asia. 7-Eleven’s success is due to its widespread store network. China Resources Enterprise Ltd moved up the most on the ranking, climbing seven spots to reach 24th place in 2014. Its multi-format strategy, with its brands in convenience stores, drugstores, supermarkets and hypermarkets, enabled it to grow quickly.
