Figure: The European retail and apparel sector’s outlook could be challenged by material deterioration in trading conditions.

By following a sharp recovery during summer 2021, trading conditions will continue to normalize in the next 12-18 months.

Guillaume Leglise, a vice president senior analyst at Moody’s and the author of the report said, “Global shipping delays hamper the flow of goods, reducing product availability and increasing raw material and transportation costs.”

As a result, clothing, home improvement, electronics, and home furnishing retailers are most at risk of margin erosion.

Also, Moody’s expects investments in digital to accelerate and retailers to proceed with their digital transformation with convenience and discount formats.

Basically, retailers focused on luxury, discount or casual clothing will continue to outperform the sector.
