Report Summary

Multichannel retail in numbers

Download our second annual Year in Data report, in which we bring together the highlights and key points from all of the RetailX reports published over the past 12 months.

In the Year in Data 2023 Report we share the highlights from the more than 40 reports that RetailX produced in 2023. It’s the distillation of a year of work, which saw our editors and researchers focusing on the ecommerce and multichannel industries in countries and regions across the world, as well as across a range of sectors. This involved taking both performance-based and analytical approaches in order to understand fully how retailers, brands and marketplaces have been responding to changes in different markets – and how these businesses have themselves driven change.

Through datagraphics we illustrate highlights from each report and, when brought together, illustrate the breadth and depth of RetailX research and coverage. The datagraphics featured in the report are from our three main RetailX research categories:


Since 2014, RetailX has researched more than 11,000 retailers and direct-to-consumer brands, assessing and ranking their performance on more than 300 metrics. We produce the only objective, performance-based ranking of Europe’s retailers. Our influential annual reports include the UK Top500, The EU Top1000 and the UK Growth 1000.


Our Country and Regional Reports provide a clear overview of the state of commerce in each country, blending data from ecommerce and trade associations with national and European government data, our own research and other sources. Our reports provide an authoritative, comprehensive and accessible view of the ecommerce trends, facts and figures in each territory. Our new 360º Country and Region reports combine company, consumer and regional analysis.


RetailX reports provide the strategic and commercial context in which the best retailers and brands perform in their market sectors. Combining in-depth company performance research with analysis of sector dynamics, retailers will gain a better understanding of the current state of our sector, as well as a lens through which to glimpse the coming two-to-five years.
