BMI's Retail service provides unparalleled analysis of global retail markets and research on leading industry players worldwide. Our analysts constantly revise and update more than 30 country reports, providing key industry forecasts and competitive analysis on states accounting for an estimated 70% of emerging market retail demand.
The service covers all key global developments influencing retailer strategy and consumer behaviour across multiple retail channels, incorporating mass grocery retail, consumer electronics, mobile telecoms, over-the-counter pharmaceuticals and passenger autos. At its heart are BMI's proprietary 5-year country forecasts and our unique risk tools, specifically our industry-focused risk-reward Business Environment Rating. This tool facilitates the critical evaluation of opportunities and operational risk in established, emerging and frontier markets, enabling clients to identify and evaluate global industry investment opportunities.
Given the close connections between the consumer retail industry and the broader macroeconomic and demographic picture, our analysis and forecasts draw on the expertise of a number of BMI's industry teams, as well as our Country Risk and Financial Markets analysts.
BMI's expertise lies in the dynamic combination of industry and country risk. Our proprietary Retail forecasting model uses multi-linear regression analysis of both industry-specific and macroeconomic variables on a state-by-state basis to produce a unique 'bottom-up' model of country, regional and global industry prospects. Furthermore, our risk assessment draws directly on our team of expert country business analysts to ensure that our industry-specific conclusions cohere with our broader country view. Combined with our detailed analysis of company activity and industry trends, the result is a uniquely rich evaluation of the opportunities and risks facing companies globally – total analysis.
