Retail property operators are battling many of the same enemies that the retail sector faces. Poor consumer confidence, competition from online retailers and an oversupply of retail property are among the key challenges.

The retail property market showed signs of improvement over 2009-10 after a disastrous period following the global financial crisis. However, retail conditions faltered during 2010-11 as global economic uncertainty weighed on consumer spending. While vacancy rates have improved over the past five years, this has largely been due to the use of leasing incentives and low rental prices. The revenue for the Retail Property Operators industry will grow at a compound annual rate of 4.6% over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $18.5 billion.
