This survey, PwC’s seventh annual study in a series tracking changes in global consumers’ shopping preferences, is our biggest one yet: 15,000 online users representing 15 countries. Among the expectations that global consumers now have are: 24/7 retailer availability, real-time insight into the retailer’s stock, compelling in-store technology, and consistent prices and offerings across all the retailer’s assets.
Today’s consumers have raised the bar for retailers. Multichannel shopping is a given — the price of admission into the conversation. Within our data we’ve unearthed eight customer expectations that transcend geography and product category, and will require that retailers evaluate their business model from top to bottom.
Take a closer look at the main takeaways and feel free to discuss and share them! Please, don’t hesitate to contact me for any doubt and follow the hashtag #TotalRetail!

Nel 2017 l’industria dei media e dell’intrattenimento in Italia raggiungerà 56,2 miliardi di euro, rispetto ai 48,4 miliardi di euro del 2013, derivanti per circa 7,1 miliardi dall’advertising e per 49,1 miliardi dalla spesa dei consumatori finali, trainata dalla crescita della spesa per l’accesso ai servizi internet e ai servizi in mobilità.

As we get closer to the start of the 2012 Olympic Games in London at the end of July, so interest is rising in the likely medal tallies of different countries.
As a contribution to this debate, PwC has conducted an analysis of the key factors of past Olympic performance and used this to produce some benchmarks against which performance at the 2012 Olympics can be judged.
This updates similar analysis we produced around the time of the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics.
So what factors are statistically significant in explaining how the medals are shared out by the competing countries at the Olympic Games? We believe there are four:
In general, the number of medals won increases with the population and economic wealth of the country, but less than proportionately: David can sometimes beat Goliath in the Olympic arena, although superpowers like the US, China and Russia continue to dominate at the top of the medal table.
And could ‘home advantage’ – enjoyed in the past by both China in Beijing and Australia in Sydney –provide a competitive edge for hosts Great Britain?
Take a look at the full report to get some fascinating insights into how the medals could be shared out this year.
