Is there a future for service stations?
BCG has conducted an in-depth study of the fuel retail industry, detailing four very different market environments that are likely to emerge around the world, each defined by changes in mobility and consumer lifestyles. Fuel retailers can use these market environment scenarios to analyze how their business might fare in the years ahead under different conditions and to position themselves to adapt over the short, medium, and long terms.
