Walmart Inc in Retailing

Company Profile

About This Report

Jun 2019

Although Walmart remained the largest retailer in the world by value sales in 2018, intensifying competition from e-commerce giants such as Amazon and Alibaba means that its reign at the top appears less secure now than at any time in the recent past. As a result, Walmart is investing billions to extend its digital reach and improve its omnichannel capabilities, both in the US and in international markets, which it believes are primed for significant retailing growth.
