Retail Data

You want to identify fast and efficiently profitable markets in Europe especially for retail trade?

Valuable Market Data on available Purchasing Power and real Turnover

Our data inform you about

  • the Purchasing Power of a certain area's population that is available for spending in retail at the consumers' place of residence (Retail Spending) and
  • the turnover of local retail trade at the consumers' place of expenditure (Retail Turnover).

On request further specifications and subdivisions are possible.

Retail Centrality shows shopping appeal of cities

Another element of the MB-Research Retail Data is the Retail Centrality. This indicator describes the ability of an area to pin the Retail Spending of its population and of other areas' population down to the local retail trade. Cities having a great shopping appeal show a Centrality Index of more than 100, because they tie more Retail Spending of surrounding areas to themselves than they emit to those areas.
