China is the world’s largest retail market and a global leader in e-commerce. As the country makes its transition from a manufacturing-based economy to a service-oriented one, the government’s priority has become that of ensuring stable economic growth by boosting domestic consumption. For this reason, the retail sector in China is expected to perform well in the years to come, encouraged also by favourable policies and socio-economic conditions. In 2018, total retail sales rose by 4% y/y to RMB 38,099bn (USD 5,660bn) with annual growth in rural areas higher than that in urban areas. Consumption expenditure per capita reached RMB 19,853 – a 12.2% y/y increase – with the figure at RMB 26,112 in urban and RMB 12,124 in rural areas.
