Regional point-of-sale turnover in Germany for 2010

This month's map reveals the regional point-of-sale turnover at the level of Germany's urban and rural districts (source: GfK GeoMarketing, GfK POS Turnover 2010).

GfK POS Turnover 2010 - GfK GeoMarketing

According to calculations by GfK GeoMarketing, Germany's 2010 stationary retail turnover will fall slightly from the previous year's level to €388.1 billion. The "GfK POS Turnover for the Retail Trade 2010" study predicts the turnover at the point of sale and serves as an important benchmark among retailers for branch network and expansion planning as well as controlling.

Olaf Petersen, GfK GeoMarketing retail and location expert, sees opportunities for development despite the economic crisis: "Despite the fact that in 2010 many consumers will feel a greater impact from the economic downturn, retail turnover will be somewhat sheltered from these effects thanks to Germans' frugality. German consumers already tend not to make purchases above their means, which provides a cushioning effect against the crisis. This is in contrast to countries like Spain or Great Britain, where consumers tend to overspend."

Also, thanks to the anticipated low inflation rate, retailers can achieve respectable results in 2010 despite the difficult economic situation. Particularly promising venues according to Petersen are midsized city centers, which are playing an ever more important role in the consumer behavior of the population.

More results from the study can be found in our press release from March 9, 2010.
