The struggles of the retail industry are well known. Shifting consumer habits and the rise of online shopping has seen a precipitous decline in market values and profits among traditional brickand-mortar stores. Brands are going digital or going broke. Yet, reports of the death of retail and some segments of the consumer goods sector may be widely exaggerated, at least for now. If anything, the industry is going through a transitionary phase of growing pains. The rules of retail are being rewritten, especially in Asia where increasing numbers of customers are going digital. For instance, in Malaysia, Touch ‘N Go, a mobile payment platform, is simplifying the payment process for online shoppers and challenging traditional market leaders. And while the rapid rise of disruptive technologies and new competitors is definitely putting a dent in top and bottom-line growth among Asian consumer goods corporations, other priorities also pose a challenge.
