New Report – Click & Collect in the UK 2018 – 2023


Click & Collect in the UK to Grow to £10bn by 2023 but Customer Satisfaction Lags Behind Home Delivery

The UK Click & Collect Market is set to rise 45.8% over the next five years to reach £9.8bn by 2023, but growth will slow as the fulfilment method matures and services offered by retailers are optimised, according to GlobalData.

The latest report ‘Click & Collect in the UK 2018 – 2023’ reveals that the clothing & footwear sector is by far the largest within the click & collect channel, accounting for 59.9% of spend in 2018. Although the majority of key multichannel retailers have finely tuned their proposition over recent years by extending order cut off times, increasing speed and minimising costs, service enhancements have plateaued as these elements have been optimised.

Emily Salter, Retail Analyst for GlobalData, commented: “Although 79.9% of click & collect users were satisfied with click & collect services in 2018*, this is significantly lower than for home delivery, which stands at 89.5%*.

“Retailers continue to introduce measures to meet rising consumer expectations for home delivery, such as offering same day services – led by online pureplays such as Amazon and ASOS. Next is one of the few multichannel retailers currently offering a click & collect proposition to rival the speed and cost of home delivery, through recently introducing free one hour collection in selected stores.”

Additional purchases increase the importance of click & collect to retailers, as 39.2% of customers bought an additional item while collecting their last order*. This varies quite substantially by sector though, with food & grocery items being the sector that more customers purchase an extra item from, due to the low prices and essential nature of many products, and presence in a range of stores.

Salter concludes: “A number of factors will inhibit growth of the click & collect channel, including store closures. The growing number of retailers closing stores and implementing CVAs will reduce the availability of collection points, increasing usage of alternative delivery options. Additionally, delivery saver schemes encourage customers to predominantly use home delivery as express deliveries are included in the vast majority of schemes, driving up usage of express home delivery.”

UK Pet Insurance: Distribution & Marketing 2018


Purchasing preferences moved back towards price comparison sites and brokers in 2018, after a strong shift towards the direct channel in 2017. The direct channel still leads the way by over 20 percentage points (pp) for both cats and dogs, but it has seen reductions of over 5pp in both products. Unsurprisingly, consumers continue to move towards online purchases, with smartphones and tablets becoming a serious option for buying insurance. Every non-digital method saw declines in their share for cats and dogs as a result. Petplan remains dominant despite suffering a slight decline in its share of respondent selection.


UK Pet Insurance: Distribution & Marketing 2018“, the report explores pet insurance purchasing behavior, and how consumer preferences are changing over time. It discovers what is most influential to customers when purchasing a policy and also reveals the most popular providers in the market.

  • Switching levels remain low among pet insurance customers, but a considerable number of new entrants continue to enter the market.

2019: Trends to Watch in Global Wealth Management


Technology’s Infiltration of the Wealth Management Industry will Present Cybercrime Risks in 2019

Wealth managers should use technology to grow assets under management (AUM) and reach new demographics, however, they must remain astute to consumer protection against cyberattacks, which is becoming more common in this digital age, according to GlobalData.

The latest report, ‘2019: Trends to Watch in Global Wealth Management’ identified four main trends to come in the year:

  • In the wake of CRS, non-participating countries such as the US will continue to grow as offshore centers.
  • Volatility will require a rethink of diversification.
  • As use of technology increases, wealth managers will have to take more serious action towards cybersecurity.
  • New client demographics will become more prevalent.
  • As technological change is accelerating in the wealth management industry, the threat of cyber-attacks and data breaches are an increasing concern.

Sergel Woldemichael, Wealth Management Analyst at GlobalData, says, “Only 43% of wealth managers are concerned about the effect of data breaches on their brand*, which is a relatively non-chalant approach by wealth managers towards cybersecurity that needs to change.”

Technology is growing at a rapid pace, and the risk of cyber-attacks will only grow with it. Furthermore, investors themselves are seeing data breaches regarding other aspects of their life such as social media heightening sensitivity. Wealth managers should have a contingency plan in place to reduce dampening profits and damage to brand image.

Woldemichael adds, “The typically paper-based and male-dominated wealth industry is beginning to experience client demand for technology and demographic changes. Technology has helped bridge the gap between the HNW and the masses, regarding wealth management services.”

62.1% of wealth managers believe digital channels will be more important to the next generation than the current*, so it is in wealth manager’s best interest to adapt as soon as possible to thrive and grow AUM.

Woldemichael concludes: “The historically male-dominated industry is beginning to see more women enter the trade. Not to mention the wealth of women is growing.  Wealth managers should not remain stuck in their ways as it will only damage profits – remaining adaptive and forward-thinking will be key for growth.”

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Market, Update 2018


APAC will continue to lead global solar PV market through 2025

Asia-Pacific (APAC) will continue to lead the global solar photovoltaic (PV) market over the next seven years due to abundant availability of solar energy in the tropical countries and government support in countries such as China, India, Japan and Australia, says GlobalData.

The company’s latest report ‘Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Market, Update 2018,’ reveals that strong demand for PV in countries such as China, the US, India, Japan, Germany and Australia will drive global solar PV installations to cross 1,000 gigawatt (GW) of cumulative capacity by 2025.

Piyali Das, Power Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “The global solar PV market is growing rapidly as is evident from the annual addition since 2010. The average annual addition during 2010-2018 was 52 GW. Reduction in costs of PV due to an increase in competition, emergence of PV in new and upcoming countries in South America, Middle East & Africa and APAC regions will drive the global solar PV installations during 2018-2030. It is expected that the global solar PV market will reach 1,082GW by 2025 and 1,516GW by 2030.”


APAC remains the leading region in the global solar PV market with a share of 58.3% in the global cumulative solar PV capacity in 2018, according to the report.

Das adds: “China, which is the largest market for PV in the world, has witnessed a declining trend in annual additions in 2018. The country’s annual additions are expected to decline in 2018 to around 42GW from 53.1GW in 2017.”

The key reason for the decline is attributed to the 2018 Solar PV Generation Notice released by the China’s National Development and Reform Commission, which has set tough limits to cut down the solar PV generation in 2018 and beyond.

However, the country will continue to dominate the global PV market and will continue install the highest PV capacities than any other country during the forecast period.

Das continues: “India, another key country in the APAC region as well as the global PV market, will continue to add record capacities each year during 2018-2022 in order to meet its aggressive national solar PV targets.”

Countries such as India and Japan have taken up auctions to increase the market uptake for solar PV, leading to cost competitiveness, and encouraging state-owned distribution utilities to award PV projects through a bidding route. Auctions allow policymakers to control both the price and quantity of PV energy by providing stable revenue guarantees for project developers while ensuring that the renewable generation target is met more precisely. Against this backdrop, many new and emerging PV markets have taken up the auctions route to increase their PV market uptake.

Das concludes: “Cutting down annual additions in China, India’s gaining momentum in the solar PV market and increase in auction-based competitive bidding are the significant factors impacting the solar PV market in 2018 and beyond.”

UK SME Insurance: Competitor Dynamics


AXA and Aviva dominate the UK SME insurance space across all of the 10 non-vehicle-based commercial products listed in our 2018 UK SME Insurance Survey. However, the pair have slipped within the six motor lines, with Admiral and AA in particular establishing a strong presence at the top of these markets. Meanwhile, Allianz recorded a strong performance in the liabilities lines but the little impact in the vehicle-based lines. Hiscox and Zurich are liability specialists, although they have both seen their shares decline since 2017. Within the motor lines, there is a clear trend of popular personal lines insurers also enjoying success in the SME market. This shows that established relationships are essential and easily transferred from personal to commercial lines.

Key Highlights:

  • AXA’s domination has declined slightly in terms of individual lines, but it still heads seven products.
  • Third-placed Allianz remains over 5 percentage points behind Aviva, which highlights that the top two are still way ahead of other brands despite their declines. But this is offset by Allianz underwriting the products of Barclays, which is the fourth-largest player.
  • AXA’s position in the overall market is not replicated in brokers’ preference for business placement, where Allianz and Aviva continue to top packaged and non-packaged respectively.
