Retail In Airports Will Grow To $49 Billion By 2021, Research Finds
MarketWatch Pulse 

Global airport retailing will grow 27% to $49 billion by 2021, according to 
research from GlobalData, an analysis, data and solutions company for 
industries including retail, tech and healthcare. In 2016, spending in 
airports, including duty-free shops, totaled $38 billion. An increased number 
of travelers as well as increased security over recent years are a "captive 
audience" who have "time to kill and, especially when on holiday, is in the 
mood to spend." Asia-Pacific airports generated the most spending in 2016 with 
$14.8 billion, with Chinese travelers providing a boost. Europe tallied $10.7 
billion in 2016, with the Brexit decision and the decline in value of the pound 
attracting tourists. The U.S. has made gains, but, GlobalData says, President 
Trump's efforts to curb immigration "is making regular travelers think twice 
about visiting the country." The SPDR S&P Retail ETF is down 10.3% for the year 
so far while he S&P 500 index is up nearly 9% for the period.
