The goal of the Report Smart & Fast Cities is to provide:
In general, the Report is intended to all the companies operating in all the durable consumer goods segments . More specifically, an in-depth analysis is addressed to two of the CSIL's core-business segments: kitchen furniture and lighting fixtures.
The Report provides profiles of 151 cities worldwide with a selection of economic and demographic indicators (2013 and 2018), estimates of the potential market of two selected durable consumer goods sectors (2013 and 2018), lighting and kitchen furniture, in each city and the forecasts for the market development to the year 2023 (*). The study also offers an indicator that, through six dimensions (demographic dynamics, economic wealth, consumption, quality of life, infrastructure, governance), ranks the cities according to their business attractiveness. In their last part, the profiles deliver an analysis of the geographical presence of a selected sample of 65 brands , each of which operates as a trend-setter in its own category, in 143 out of the 151 cities considered. Each identified location is characterized by its type (store, multibrand store, shopping centre) and the cost of the area in which they are located. The aim is, thus, to provide a comprehensive view of the cities that a selection of international retailers entered.
For each city profile , the following data, indicators and forecasts are provided:
Selected cities group by geographic areas:
(*) Our economic and demographic indicator database is dated January 2020, therefore macroeconomic and sectorial estimations and forecasts were made before that date. The world has changed dramatically in the three months as the world has been put in a Great Lockdown. According to the IMF, “the magnitude and speed of collapse in activity that has followed is unlike anything experienced in our lifetimes”. Up to the publication date of this report updates on forecasts up to 2023 haven't be released.
Overall, in 2018 the 151 cities selected in CSIL sample cumulatively show: population of 1,115 million inhabitants; GDP of US$ 31,085 billion; number of household of 342 million; household consumption of US$ 19,164 billion.
Therefore, they accounted for 16% of the global population and almost 37% of the world's GDP. Compared to their respective countries, on average they account for 23% of the GDP and 10% of the population. In terms of population, Tokyo, Jakarta, and Delhi are the largest cities ; Zurich, Abu Dhabi, and Oslo the smallest ones. On the other hand, Oslo is the number in terms of GDP per capita, Zurich ranks 6th in terms of household consumption per capita.
Economically. New York, Tokyo , and Los Angeles are the largest city in terms of total GDP (both in 2018 and 2013). However, in 2018 Tokyo has the largest city-level lighting market , followed by New York, Los Angeles, and Seoul. By 2023, Seoul is expected to overcome Los Angeles and reach the third position. Looking at the kitchen market, Seoul already ranks 3th in 2018 , after Tokyo and New York. This ranking is expected to hold also in 2023.
As regards business attractiveness, the top destinations are Tokyo, Atlanta , and Stockholm . All of them stand out in terms of quality of life and good governance. The worse scores are recorded for Caracas, Teheran, and Recife.
Using big data, CSIL identifies the commercial areas of 150 cities through the geolocation of over 65 brands, each of which operates as a trend-setter in its own category. Each identified location is characterized by its type (store, multi-brand store, shopping centre) and the cost of the area in which it is positioned. CSIL managed to identify 4,809 locations across 143 cities. The cities that host a higher number of companies from our sample are: Moscow, London, Milano, Istanbul, and New York . On the other hand, the most expensive locations are in the USA, in order: Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Boston, Miami, and Chicago; the cheapest ones are sited in Asia: Haerbin (CN), Changchun (CN), Lahore (PK), Hyderabad (IN), and Xi'an, Shaanxi (CN).
