CII backs Make in India for retail boom

Leading industry body, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) expects the retail market in India will touch $1.2 trillion by 2020 and $2.1 trillion by 2025 from the present level of $550 billion, generating 10-12 million jobs in the next decade, it said in a statement.

According to a report titled The Indian Retail Medley released jointly by CII and Wazir Advisors at a Conference on Retail themed ‘Decoding the Future of Retail’ in New Delhi recently, “The organized retail in India is expected to grow 7 fold and online retail 26 folds, while the unorganized retail will continue to dominate”.

The report further highlighted that “CII & Wazir are certain that the sector will get a transformational push with an aggressive collaboration between the organized, unorganized and online retail growth, driven by India’s demographics with huge young and tech savvy population (500 million below 25 years), rising incomes and demand levels, urbanisation, attitudinal shifts and above all, a phenomenal and continuous rise in internet penetration across the country with the government’s commitment to digitization”.

“It is estimated there would be 550 million net users in India by 2018, as also the face of the Internet user will change dramatically, with higher penetration to the tune of 210 million in rural areas. The online retail would provide a superb platform to the unorganised retail to reach out to the consumers across markets in tier 3 & tier 4 cities”, the report highlighted.

“Time is absolutely opportune to ‘Make in India for Retail in India, with our country being one of the fastest growing and most dynamic retail markets in the world. We must produce and sell in India. There is however a dire need to strengthen our supply chain management, identification of the consumers’ needs, trained and skilled manpower and streamlining of our taxation system”, said Adesh Gupta, chairman, CII Retail 2015 and promoter, Liberty Group.

"Further, India is expected to become the world’s fastest growing e-commerce market on the back of robust investment activity in the sector and the rapid increase in internet users. It is expected that India’s e-commerce market will grow from $2.9 billion in 2013 to over $100 billion by 2020. There is enough demand, and the challenge would be how to reach the consumers, both from connectivity and logistics perspective. The online retail can reach Tier 4-6 areas much better than offline channel, giving it a bigger advantage. Collaboration between both organized and unorganized retail companies could be the real game changer”, he added.

Harminder Sahni, MD, Wazir Advisors Ltd said, “The profitability of the retailers is a major issue these days. The companies should concentrate on opening profitable stores, with thrust on hiring trained manpower. Both online and offline must work together”. (SH)
