The Australian grocery market is expected to reach US$111.8 billion ($155.24 billion) in sales by 2023, making a modest impact on the US$1.9 trillion ($2.64 trillion) in sales forecasted for the leading grocery markets worldwide. According to IGD’s latest research, Australia is expected to have CAGR growth of 2.9 per cent by 2023. The 20 leading markets are forecasted to grow by 28 per cent between 2018 and 2023, with Asia making up nearly half (44 per cent) of the extra sales, more than Africa, Europe and Latin America combined. Seven of the world’s largest grocery markets by 2023 will be from Asia, with a combined market size of US$3.8 trillion ($5.28 trillion). Nick Miles, head of Asia Pacific at IGD, said the predicted growth in Asia can be attributed to the rapidly growing middle class, adoption of new technology, improved infrastructure and logistics networks, as well as improvements to retail standards.

COVID-19 will bring lasting innovation to retail

Article | April 21, 2020

To say these are interesting times for the retail sector would be an understatement. COVID-19 has created a dichotomy the likes of which we've never seen before. On the one hand, a large percentage of retailers have closed up shop temporarily either in response to regulatory mandates, or due to dwindling customer foot-traffic. And on the other hand, a number of retailers remain open for business and under great strain as nearly all remaining retail traffic is funneled to grocery stores, pharmacies, hardware stores and big-box retailers considered to be essential in the eyes of regulators.

3 SEO Lessons from Amazon for Ecommerce Product Pages

Article | March 8, 2020

Product detail pages on Amazon rank for roughly 34 million keywords in Google in the U.S. In this post, I’ll address three tips for optimizing the product pages on your own ecommerce site using lessons from Amazon. The name of a product greatly influences organic search rankings. Product names are typically in title tags, heading tags (H1, H2), and other metadata. Search engines use product names for relevance signals, and shoppers use them to scan search-result pages. Product names are important for Amazon’s site search. Thus merchants tend to go overboard there. The principle, however, is the same for optimizing search on Google or Amazon. Highly descriptive product names such as “Deck Plus #10 x 3-in Ceramic Deck Screws” leave little doubt both to searchers scanning the results page and to search engine algorithms. However, when a product name is more general, such as “Cuisinart Electric Cordless Tea Kettle,” neither searchers nor engines know with certainty what’s on the page. Which Cuisinart electric kettle is it? Stainless steel or plastic? Big or small?

How Amazon’s Cashierless Tech Will (Or Won’t) Change The Physical Retail Landscape

Article | March 11, 2020

The advance of Amazon’s cashierless technology is not a new story to the retail beat as of 2020. Since the first AmazonGo retail location opened in early 2018 with its much-hyped walk-in, walk out retail technology designed to make the line at checkout a thing of the past, Amazon has been slowly but surely expanding the technology’s footprint there are now 26 Go stores in operation in the U.S. with new openings scheduled for New York, Chicago, Seattle and San Francisco on the agenda for his year. And, as of reports two weeks ago, cashierless tech is breaking out of the small footprint, convenience store-esque locations that are Amazon Go stores. As of the end of February, Amazon announced the tech was making its full-fledged grocery debut in the form of Amazon Go Grocery stores.
