Online Retailing - France - July 2018
“Online retailing in France is generally at a medium stage of development, behind the countries of northern Europe, but ahead of those in the south. Amazon dominates, but less so than in most other countries, due to relatively strong propositions from domestic retailers. The next area of growth will be home delivery of groceries. Amazon opened up the potential with Amazon Prime Now in Paris, and several other retailers have followed suit with express deliveries in the capital. But Casino recently signed a deal with Ocado and the Monoprix chain will launch its home delivery business in 2019, which will set the bar very high for its rivals. Carrefour is also investing heavily as part of its turnaround strategy and recently signed a deal with Google. We expect strong growth from this segment in the coming years.”
