Hardly any other industry has been so dramatically changed in recent years by the ever-increasing use of the internet as the retail and consumer products industry. More and more consumers are using the internet to find out about a purchase before making a decision, and are enjoying the boundless possibilities of shopping online. This is changing distribution channels, market structures and business models. Against the backdrop of the existing competition of large retail chains and the ever-increasing pressure on prices from online retail, vendors in bricks-and-mortar retailing are trying to defend their position by improving the quality of their service and their cost efficiency. But the proportion of online sales continues to grow at a dramatic rate, nonetheless. For companies in the industry this means that to keep their place in the market they have to be flexible and act quickly in the face of high levels of pressure from the competition and the rapidly changing conditions.
