  • Reliance Retail Industry Overview

Industry Statistics

  • The Indian retail industry is segregated into two sectors: organized and unorganized retailing. Organized retailing comprises the kind of trading activities that are undertaken by retailers who are registered for sales tax, Income tax etc. Corporate backed hypermarkets, retail chains, privately owned large retail businesses are some of the examples of organized retailing. Unorganized retailing mainly comprises local Kirana shops, owner-managed general stores, street vendors, convenience stores etc.
  • Indian retail industry has emerged as one of the most dynamic and fast-paced industries due to the entry of several new players. It accounts for over 10% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and around 8% of the employment in 2021. India is the world’s fifth-largest global destination in the retail space. 
  • India’s retail market is estimated at US$822 billion in FY 2019- 20 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10% over next five years to reach US$1,315 billion by FY 2024-25. The organized retail market is estimated at US$88 billion in FY 2019-20 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19% over the next five years to reach US$231 billion by FY 2024-25.
  • The pandemic has created a new set of challenges for a sector that is fairly unorganised and already dealing with several structural changes. Trends that were on a multiyear trajectory saw a dramatic acceleration and the retail industry witnessed more innovation in the past year than it did in the prior decade.
  • Customers have the ever-increasing choice of products at the lowest rates. In terms of post covid impact, consumers are likely to remain value-conscious which will benefit hypermarkets as they are better placed to offer discounts due to their volumes. The comeback of non-essential sales is likely to aid recovery and growth across supermarkets. E-commerce is creating the biggest revolution in retail industry, and this trend is likely to continue in the years to come. 
  • On the other hand, traditional grocery retailers are likely to maintain their popularity as their easy accessibility and a loyal customer base remain their strengths. These outlets will also play a critical role in last-mile deliveries for e-commerce players. The unorganised retail market is poised to grow to over US$1 trillion over this period, making it amongst the most attractive consumer sector opportunities across the world.
  • As hypermarkets and supermarkets are large format stores, expansion opportunities in metro cities could be limited. However, low penetration of modern grocery retailers, lower real estate costs and availability of large spaces offers tremendous expansion opportunities in tier II and tier III cities.
  • India’s retail sector attracted US$ 6.2 billion from various private equity and venture capital funds in 2020
  • Companies are now looking to hire tech-savvy people to cope with ever changing environment. Moreover, customers too are now looking for an alternative mediums to shop as well as a variety of items which they can buy online. This clearly shows that the future of shopping is going to be technology-driven.
  • Long-term outlook for the industry looks positive, supported by rising income, favourable demographics, entry of foreign players, and increasing urbanisation.

Future Prospects

  • The retail industry in India is in the midst of paradigm shift, transitioning from an unorganised sector to an organised venture. Small enterprises are working towards the formalisation of their companies for a better growth prospective. The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has furthered the shift towards organised industry since retailers have been forced to adopt technology and automation to forward their businesses.
  • Online retail market in India is projected to reach US$ 350 billion by 2030 from an estimated US$ 55 billion in 2021, due to rising online shoppers in the country. In 2020, the most common payment methods online were digital wallets (40%), followed by credit cards (15%) and debit cards (15%). Online penetration of retail is expected to reach 10.7% by 2024 versus 4.7% in 2019
  • The penetration of organised retail market is estimated at 11% in FY 2019-20 and is expected to grow to 18% by FY 2024-25.
  • Another prevalent emerging trend in the retail industry is the application driven-shopping experiences. The end consumers now prefer mobile apps while shopping since it eases the process for them, while saving time - for both the buyer and the seller.

Government Initiatives

  • Government has been giving more tax relaxation to young FMCG brands that can also boost retailers. Charging young brands less GST than incumbents will lead to competitive prices and some part of it can be passed on to retailers by such brands in the form of more margin. The Indian government has been laying impetus on enhancing the digital infrastructure and Digital India has been one of the ambitious initiative taken by the government. 
  • In October 2021, the RBI announced plans for a new framework for retail digital payments in offline mode to accelerate digital payment adoption in the country.
  • The Minister of MSME announced inclusion of retail and wholesale trades as MSMEs. Retail and wholesale trade will now get the benefit of priority sector lending under the RBI guidelines.
  • Government of India has allowed 100% FDI in online retail of goods and services through the automatic route, thereby providing clarity on the existing businesses of E-commerce companies operating in India.

  • Reliance Retail invested in acquiring businesses, including leading physical and digital commerce platforms like Netmeds, Urban Ladder, and Zivame, to augment its business portfolio to drive operating efficiencies and strengthen omni-channel capabilities.

Reliance Retail Shortcomings

  • The company needs to look after the management of its working capital, the current ratio (indicator of Short-term solvency) is lower when compared to the other listed peers.
  • Poor inventory control at certain some part of Tier II and Tier III areas because the lack of distribution network for such areas.
  • The efficiency of a company's assets in generating revenue or sales has been declining year on year(YOY).
  • Even though the Reliance Retail has integrated technology in the backend processes but it still has not been able to harness the power of technology in the front end processes.

Reliance Retail Opportunities

  • Large potential to reduce operation cost in cities using strong supply chain
  • Reliance Retail can use the increasing disposable income to build a new business model where customers start paying progressively for using its products.
  • Reliance Retail can explore adjacent industries to further market growth especially by extending the features of present products and services and that can leverage this trend to reduce the number of offerings in the market and focus the marketing efforts on the successful products.
  • Another opportunity, which Reliance Retail can capitalise on, relates to it rolling out more products under its own brand instead of being a forwarding site for third party products. In other words, it can increase the number of products under its own brand instead of merely selling and stocking products made by its partners.

Reliance Retail Threats

  • Operating cost is too high
  • Walmart is the biggest competitor when it comes to sourcing/ backward integration.
  • Reliance Retail operates in an industry where there is a culture of sticky prices this can lead to inability to increase prices that its premium prices deserve.
  • Their business model can be replicated in Tier I cities which can lead to aggressive competition.
