Despite being a small country and economy, with a population of around 5mn , Singapore has seen robust growth compared with other regional countries. The expected growth in the economy is likely to translate to higher levels of income and spending levels of the local population. The extremely high levels of disposable income represent excellent opportunities for retailers as there are many purchases for non-essential goods, particularly those of which are deemed fashionable and modern.

Singapore is home to some of the most modern retail formats on the globe, with a huge amount of shopping mall complexes relative to their small population size. With shopping malls often being located adjoining the subway (MRT) stations throughout the city. Orchard Road is the key shopping area for retailers of the traditional formats with a plethora of shopping malls and high-end shops and state of the art infrastructure and complimentary services that improve the area's attractiveness. Orchard Road is the main shopping destination as a result of these characteristics with tourists, particularly from mainland China providing much of the revenue for retailers, as shoppers look to take advantage of the low rate of sales tax in the country. Despite the continued dominance of traditional retailers, e-commerce is starting to lift-off despite the initial slow growth even though Singapore's smartphone penetration rates are exceptionally high. Logistically, Singapore has become much more attractive for e-commerce, as infrastructure gets put in place, though Singapore's high levels of urbanisation means that the physical stores are rarely out of reach.
