Executive Summary

Mar 2019
Lifestyle changes are affecting retailing channels

With the rapid increase of single-person households, retailing channels that are targeting them are boosting sales growth in South Korea. Convenience stores are growing quickly with an increased number of outlets so that consumers can easily drop by anytime to buy small amounts of products.

Significant increase of mobile internet retailing

Mobile internet retailing is rapidly growing in South Korea, accounting for more than 60% of total internet retailing sales, and many retailers are actively developing mobile platforms. Whilst online retailers have already expanded their channel to mobile, offline players are also actively improving their mobile platforms.

With low consumer confidence in spending, consumers still seek value-for-money products

Due to continuing economic downturn, consumers keep seeking for value-for-money products. Hence, many of the large retailers are actively developing good-quality private label products at reasonable prices.

New concepts with advanced technology are developing

Whilst all other industries are moving towards a fourth industrial revolution, retailing companies are also trying to change the shape of outlets with new technology. 7-Eleven has opened four cashier-less 7-Eleven Signature outlets since May 2017 and these are mainly operated by Hand Pay, the smart payment system whereby consumers register their handprint on their account along with financial card information; payment is then automatically made via a hand-reading smart machine when consumers check out.

Multi-complex shopping centres with hybrid outlets are in trend

Many shopping complexes appear and are being built in South Korea. Leading retailing operator Shinsegae Group opened another Starfield Wirye, its fourth multi-complex shopping centre.
