What Is Sheng Siong Group Ltd Going To Do About Amazon’s Entry Into Singapore?

A month ago, there were media provides details regarding US eCommerce monster Amazon entering the Southeast Asia showcase by means of Singapore.

The reports additionally said that the organization is probably going to present a basic supply benefit here and that it has been purchasing resources, for example, refrigerated trucks and enlisting new individuals. This could be significant news for blocks and-mortar basic supply retailers in Singapore.

Some of you can maybe recall the conclusion of the huge Borders book shop in Wheelock Place in 2011 as a feature of the Borders organization's chapter 11 around the same time.

In a Wall Street Journal profile of Borders' liquidation, columnist Shira Ovide composed that "[s]ome of Border's issues weren't the organization's blame. There are presently many spots to purchase books on the web or in physical book shops." Amazon is one organization prevailing in the online retail of books.

While it is conceivable to offer books or non-perishable gadgets effectively over the web, the hindrances to passage for online retailers with regards to new and perishable products are higher. It is difficult to keep crisp products, well, new.

Be that as it may, that has not prevented Amazon from attempting to – and prevailing in – winning business from blocks and-mortar food merchants in the US. Take for instance, the accompanying passage from an April 2016 Business Insider article:

"In the previous two years, Amazon basic supply customers have expanded all things considered by around 26% year-over-year each quarter, as indicated by Cowen information. For examination, Walmart buyers have declined 3% year-over-year all things considered, while basic need customers at Target have declined by around 1%."

Walmart and Target are US-based customary blocks and-mortar staple retailers.

There are some online merchants in Singapore right now and a main player in the scene is Redmart. Along these lines, any reasonable person would agree that blocks and-mortar merchants here have been managing on the web rivalry for temporarily.

In any case, there's a major contrast among-st Redmart and Amazon – the previous does not have anything near the profound stashes the last has. Starting 30 September 2016, Amazon has US$13.7 billion in real money and counterparts.

Nothing's an unavoidable reality for the basic need retail environment in Singapore right now. In any case, it is intriguing to perceive how the blocks and-mortar food merchants here, for example, Sheng Siong Group Ltd (SGX: OV8), Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01), and NTUC Fairprice, react to this potential new danger from Amazon. As Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezo once broadly said, "Your edge is my chance."
