Read about the key economic trends in the Irish retail market.

Notwithstanding the buoyant economic backdrop, 2018 has been a somewhat uncertain year for the retail sector and the outlook for the residue of the year, and beyond, shows little of the underlying occupational strength of the Office, Residential and Industrial sectors. With a sector so heavily populated by internationally headquartered operators (eg ; Debenhams, M&S, House of Fraser, Inditex, H&M) it is unsurprising that there is a degree or nervousness in certain parts of the marketplace given the negative media speculation and adverse trading warnings surrounding many high profile retailers.
