Influences of changes in consumption patterns on the distribution industry
○Changes of consumption patterns affected by demographic changes promote both growth and decline of retail businesses. However, studies on the effects of demographic changes are not sufficient with respect to the distribution industry.

We also aim to study influences that such changes have on Korean distribution industry structures, and provide policy implications of demographic changes in the future with respect to a growth of the distribution industry.
