The Future of Retailing in Turkey to 2020; Comprehensive data overview of the market, with retail sales value and forecasts to 2020


The Chilean economy is dependent on copper and exports, and the fall of commodity prices have affected the economy in the last two years indicating a need to change their GDP sector portfolio. However, the country is performing better than other Latin American countries. High income levels and sound policies from the government have shielded the country. But Chileans are negotiating their retail purchases as they are shifting towards small stores. On the other hand, high internet penetration and very high smartphone penetration is expected to fuel the online retail channel. Overall, we expect an optimistic retail environment in the next five years.
