Never miss a retail innovation again with the GDI Retail Radar
GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute

We have been looking at the future of retailing and consumption since the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute was founded in 1963. We research how technological, economic and social developments affect retailing, we identify and evaluate new business models in retailing, and we analyse how consumer behaviour is shaped – and can be changed. We recognise trends in retailing, food and health, differentiate between hype and opportunity, and thus lay the foundation for your innovations.

Our trend assessments are based on the knowledge gained from previous GDI research: research for trend reports, information from workshop participations and findings from expert interviews. The GDI Retail Radar is intended to support organisations in different sectors in identifying the trends relevant to their own company, with the aim of sustainably developing their own strategy and competitiveness.
