Asia Pacific Retail Trends Q1 2019


22 May 2019

  • Demand was led by cosmetics and personal care tenants, which are increasingly sought after by shopping mall landlords due to their strong sales and ability to attract high football.
  • F&B expansion remained steady over the period, led by cafes, dessert outlets and casual dining establishments.
  • Weaker consumption is expected to inhibit leasing activity over the course of 2019. Economic headwinds will force a rethink of operating strategy, with retailers expected to show their pace of expansion and focus more on enhancing the overall shopping experience.
  • Shopping centres and department stores will undergo renovations or repositioning exercises, such as introducing new store formats and experience-based offerings.
