Online Retailing in Germany Summary & Forecasts to 2021

Summary

Germany has the second lowest unemployment rate in the EU, behind the Czech Republic. In 2016 the unemployment rate in the country was 4.3%, which is its lowest rate since 1991. By 2021, another 2.8 Million people will be in employment – though many will be in part-time jobs. Rising employment and increasing wages strengthen consumer confidence, and with more disposable income, consumers have more to spend in retail and an increased willingness to spend.

Furthermore, Germany has the lowest youth unemployment in the EU (though young people also have a low share of the overall population). High employment is positive news for the retail sector as people of this age group are prime consumers who save less and spend more on fashion, technology, and entertainment products. In addition, having a sizeable number of women in the workforce also boosts retail sales.

Online retail sales in the country have recorded strong growth, at a CAGR of 13.7% between 2011 and 2016. The channel is forecast to reach €74.5 Billion by 2021. The growing number of online consumers who shop via mobiles and smart phones are a major factor in current growth. According to a BurdaForward report in 2016, the use of advanced mobile devices is increasing amongst Germans, and 40% of smart phones users and 57.2% of tablet users have purchased goods or services using these devices. Furthermore, easy returns, fast delivery and low prices are the encouraging Germans to shop online.

Germany’s GDP began to recover in 2014 from the recession that beset many Eurozone countries in 2012 and 2013, but growth, though remaining positive, is forecast to be slow between 2016 and 2021. Germany has a high corporate tax rate, which has discouraged private investment and consumers have a high savings ratio. However, low returns on investment have encouraged consumers to spend rather than save, and lower commodity prices have helped to increase disposable incomes.
