Shop smart: Increasing premium brand sales and healthy eating trends will spur growth
Supermarkets & Grocery Stores in the US
The Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry has grown over the past five years, benefiting from a strengthening economy. As per capita disposable income increased during the period, many consumers shifted to premium, organic and all-natural brands, helping lift industry revenue. Despite revenue growth during the period, industry operators faced intensifying competition from alternative retailers. Consumers turned toward warehouse clubs and supercenters because of the cost savings and convenience of these retailers. Mass merchandisers are able to offer lower prices due to their scale of operations. Consumers also shifted toward limited assortment and fresh format stores that provide a simpler layout and primarily sell less costly store brand products. Over the next five years, the industry is anticipated to grow steadily, resulting from rising discretionary income and consumer preferences. As health concerns intensify, more consumers will seek all-natural and organic products.
