Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Diana Smith, a leading analyst in the Retail & Apparel sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The grocery industry will become $700+ billion strong within the next five years. During this time, it’s likely that additional mergers and acquisitions will occur as competition inside and outside the industry (eg from restaurants) intensifies. While consumers’ grocery shopping behaviors may be rather status quo for now, this will also change as channel shifting picks up again in favor of those who can keep prices down and convenience up.

This Report builds on the analysis presented in Mintel’s Grocery
Retailing – US, November 2017 and 2016. While it discusses online

What you need to know
Since the last issuance of this Report, grocery sales have begun
to stabilize as food costs are rising. This hasn’t yet had a profound
impact on where consumers are shopping because the majority
are already devoted to value-oriented stores; however, it could
boost private label sales.
Collectively, the industry is focused on
technology that will help propel it further into the digital age as
the shift toward digital shopping continues on a slow but steady
trajectory. Meanwhile, while new store openings have slowed, many
chains are still planning for expansion, remodeling existing stores
or adding new experiential aspects aimed to appeal to loyal in-store
shoppers and younger generations in general.
