Retail parks market will grow by 13.8% over the five years to 2022, reaching £52.7bn and outpacing total offline growth. The increase in space, including new retail park openings and the extension of current parks, will drive growth, as will the changing product mix, which will attract new retail park shoppers.

While it is one of the smallest retail park sectors, health & beauty will be the fastest growing sector in the next five years, accounting for 5.8% of the retail parks market in 2022, driven by rising volumes due to product innovation in the sector, and retailers improving their own ranges. Competition will be rife in retail parks with well-established Boots fighting off new entrants to the channel, including Superdrug, and the discounters and grocers.

Despite retailer’s store closures, space in retail parks will grow by 10.2% over the next five years, driven by new retailers moving into the channel. Discounters will continue to take share of space as Aldi, Lidl, B&M and Home Bargains take advantage of the challenging retail climate where shoppers’ budgets are squeezed and are trading down.

The top positions in terms of share of the retail park market are taken by the grocers, along with Marks & Spencer, which has been able to protect its share of the market despite weaker clothing sales due to the opening of Simply Food formats and strong performance of its food division within multi-sector formats.

Best in class retailers, Curry’s PC World and Next Home, use their large format stores within retail parks to both display products in lifestyle room sets and provide interactive experiences for consumers, which enhance the shopping environment and encourage longer dwell time.

60.0% of consumers spent 60 minutes or less in retail parks due to trips being mission driven, so retailers must work harder to boost dwell time by improving leisure facilities and encouraging customers to shop across multiple retailers in order to increase spend per head. 35.3% of consumers said they would visit retail parks more frequently if there were more leisure facilities.

Retail parks need to develop destination appeal to combat the growth of online shopping. GlobalData found that 40.6% of consumers visit retail parks every three months or less, showing there is plenty of opportunity to increase visit frequency. If the shopping environment was more attractive, 50.2% of consumers said they would visit more often. Attractive store fronts, outdoor seating and innovative street food stalls would improve the appeal and aesthetic of a retail park – rather than relying on functionality.
