Understanding the Leakage/Surplus Factor
The Leakage/Surplus Factor measures the balance between the volume of retail sales (supply) generated by retail businesses and the volume of retail potential (demand) produced by household spending on retail goods within the same industry. The Leakage/Surplus Factor, an Esri exclusive calculation, is the result of a more sophisticated approach for normalization of the gap between supply and demand. The result is an index scaled to upper and lower bound values ranging from -100 to +100. Using the Leakage/Surplus Factor allows users a simple way to identify business opportunity.
Leakage in an area represents a condition where demand exceeds supply. In other words, retailers outside the market area are fulfilling the demand for retail products; therefore, demand is "leaking" out of the trade area. Such a condition highlights an opportunity for new retailers to enter the trade area or for existing retailers to extend their marketing outreach to accommodate the excess demand. In the Retail MarketPlace Profile report, leakage is indicated by a green, or positive, Leakage/Surplus Factor.
Surplus in an area represents a condition where supply exceeds the area's demand. Retailers are attracting shoppers that reside outside the trade area. The "surplus" is in market supply. Brand positioning and product mix are key differentiators in these types of markets. In the Retail MarketPlace Profile report, surplus is indicated by a red, or negative, Leakage/Surplus Factor.
In the Retail MarketPlace Profile report, leakage is indicated by a green, or positive, Leakage/Surplus Factor and surplus is indicated by a red, or negative, Leakage/Surplus Factor.
