Competitive Landscape

The Yunica Retail is doing business by running a chain of offline stores across the nation. Obviously, it might appear to someone that our major competitors would be nearby shops in the locality of our offline stores. It's partially true !!! In fact, we are competing with eCommerce marketplaces (e.g. Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Alibaba, Flipkart, Snapdeal, Myntra, Naaptol) and multi-brand large format hypermart or supermarkets (e.g. DMart, Future Retail, Shoppers Stop, Star Bazaar, etc) in the modern trade segment that offers heavy discount to attract customers. Nowadays, the consumers do their bulk purchase through these options taking away fixed demand and leaving only variable demand for the small size shops.

The digital transformation (i.e. social networks, augmented reality, internet of things, mobile platforms, cloud computing, big data & analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc) applied by relatively large enterprises in the retail sector has impacted small merchants, shop owners or traders significantly. Besides gaining operational efficiencies through digital transformation, the economy of scale would be a key differentiator in price sensitive markets. Therefore, our team of experts are trying to design, build, and operate a fully-automated distributed & intelligent retail system that would result into higher levels of efficiency in offline retail store operations.

Besides the business-to-customer activities though offline stores or online portals, we are engaged into business-to-business activities across the globe through eCommerce marketplaces. While we are leveraging several logistics partners for delivery of our goods across the globe, but we are implementing a hyperlocal delivery system of our own.
