Consumer Goods Industry & Retail

Large retailers and international buying syndicates are putting increasing pressure on manufacturers to lower prices. As a result of the processes of globalisation, many brands are dividing different tasks between multiple countries. Since it is becoming increasingly difficult to stand out in the retail sector, businesses are expanding their activities, evolving from pure retailers into manufacturers of their own branded products. Particularly for smaller and mid-sized businesses, it is important to identify niche markets and to develop innovative products.
