The latest report on non-residential smart meters market in UK says there are almost 4 million non-residential electricity and gas customers in the UK who are covered by the government mandate to install a smart or advanced meter over the next few years. It is suppliers' responsibility to drive customer take-up, although they will need to rely on "carrots" rather than "sticks" in doing so. Up to 95% of eligible non-residential sites are expected to have a smart meter installed by 2020. This represents an investment commitment of more than £500m, to be contested by equipment vendors and meter installation and IT services contractors. Some 80% of those funds are likely to be spent in the four years between 2014 and 2017. Get your copy of this report @

The new research on United Kingdom retail savings market forecasts consumers to be caught between forces that lower their ability to save and factors that encourage them to save more. The savings market will be boosted as consumers make building up their savings a top priority, the savings ratio is expected to stay high, and falling inflation will eventually allow real incomes to turn positive. Affordability will remain a major obstacle to saving as the economic recovery will be gradual and dependent on a resolution of the eurozone crisis, inflation will fall slowly meaning real wages are not expected to turn positive until 2013, and unemployment will likely remain stubbornly high.

Value Clothing Retail in the UK, for the first time, from 2014, is forecast to growth in value clothing expenditure to underperform the overall clothing market. A gradual shift in shopping habits of consumers making more considered purchases and wanting better value for money through quality and product design will result in a proportion of consumers trading up to midmarket players. Despite the lower costs associated with OOT, high street locations are much more desirable for attracting younger shoppers. While OOT stores remain important for catering to families, value players need to have a presence in high footfall locations to build retail brand awareness - particularly those with a high fashion offer which target 16-24s.

Menswear Retailing in the UK industry analysis report expects menswear to substantially overperform between 2011-16 against the past five years. Moreover, the following five years will offer even more opportunities to menswear retailers. It is therefore important that retailers identify the key trends emerging now, so that they can prepare and adjust their businesses for more exciting times ahead. Tailoring and suiting have grown in popularity as males take concern over their appearance in the work place. High unemployment has meant that being well presented at an interview and looking the part at work are more important. Fashion trends have moved towards suiting though which has also helped to drive the popularity of formal men's clothing. Get your copy of this report @
