Retail stores are increasingly using in-store automation to streamline retail shopping. Automation in retail stores is aimed at cutting costs and time involved in store operations such as container movement, merchandise scanning, inventory checking, retrieving, packaging, and delivering products, and connecting with customers. Automation reduces waiting times, avoids stocking problems, enhances productivity and increases the overall customer experience. Retailers are also focusing on using self-checkout stands for customers. Some of the major clothing retailers such as Zara and Lifestyle are using self-checkout systems. In 2019, Lifestyle, introduced self-Checkout Kiosks in few key stores and also added features like mobile POS, fitting room assistance, etc. to augment its in-store experience.
The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the clothing and clothing accessories stores market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Steps by national governments to contain the transmission have resulted in decline in manufacture and trade of non-essential goods and an overall decline in economic activity with countries entering a state of ’lock down’ and the outbreak is expected to continue to have a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the clothing and clothing accessories stores market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan’ event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.
Many clothing and clothing accessories stores are adopting a robust and cohesive strategy for data analytics in management. This technology is being deployed to enhance supply chain efficiency, streamline operations to engage customers and building loyalty, data has become critical for most retail operations. For instance, the global retail analytics market is expected to rise up to $5.1 billion by 2020. With the rapid growth in retail data and the availability of technologies to analyse data it will become easier for building material and garden equipment and supplies dealers to identify and meet the needs and expectations of their customers, thus it is expected to drive the market going forward.
