The growing influence of women in decision making, so far as shopping is concerned, is likely to boost the demand for organised retailing, a segment which is set to grow to $18-20 billion. With over 12 million retail outlets, the $180 billion organised and unorganised retail sector is likely to grow to $300 billion by 2010, according to McKinsey-CII report. The rapid increase in the number of women who are working will drive the growth of organised retail, specially in categories such as convenience foods and cosmetics. The modern women is influenced by three factors, growing level of education, increasing job opportunities and media exposure.
