Key Highlights

Hyundai recorded the strongest performance on an overall basis among the leading department stores, which was attributed to the high scores the company received for operational efficiency and financial performance pillars.

Wangfujing was the top performer under the scale and growth pillar. However, it performed weaker than the department stores channel under operational efficiency and financial performance pillar.

Isetan Mitsukoshis performance was weaker than the channel average in all areas.

The department store chains are facing increasing levels of competition from hypermarkets, discounters and online retailers, which has intensified further since the onset of global economic slowdown in 2008. 

In the Asia-Pacific region, China represents the largest department store retail market. However, the Asia-Pacific regions department store sector is dominated by the Japanese companies as the department store sector is more consolidated in Japan in comparison to China.
