The market size in  2010 was estimated at US$ 353 bn (Source: IBEF) and is  expected to reach US$ 543 bn by 2014. There are many  factors which are contributing the growth of retail sector  such as increase per capita income and living standard,  easy and low cost credit facilities, change in consumption  pattern, improvements in infrastructure, availability of retail  space and sources of financing.
