MonitorIndia : Industry and trade - $600 billion – that is how much the Indian retail industry is currently worth. To put this number into context, consider this: the combined GDPs of Luxembourg ($57.8 billion), Denmark ($257.14 billion), Finland ($224.71 billion), and Iceland ($14.48 billion) total up to around $554 billion. These eye-popping numbers serve to underline just how much of a business opportunity the country’s retail industry represents. The growth potential is even more; industry projections estimate that the retail sector will almost double by the end of this decade to reach a valuation of $1.2 trillion.
