Hypermarkets in France

PROSPECTS
The end of the race for square metres
Experts are increasingly less confident in the ability of hypermarkets to post significant or even positive value growth at constant 2017 prices over the forecast period. During the review period, many modern grocery retailers became embroiled in a race to extend the selling space of their existing hypermarkets or transform their supermarkets into hypermarkets to offset their sluggish profitability.

Hypermarkets must reinvent themselves urgently
By the end of the forecast period, hypermarkets is expected to remain the flagship/dominant channel among modern grocery retailers in France. However, local experts still say that the format must change if it wishes to regain its title of the engine of growth of modern grocery retailing.

Ongoing price war expected
With limited inflation and the saturation of the network of hypermarkets, price war will continue to rage in France. Admittedly, the threat of the creation of mega central purchasing blocs – projects for alliances between Auchan France and Système U Centrale Nationale on the one hand and ITM Entreprises and Casino Guichard-Perrachon on the other – seems to be lessening.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Leclerc roars ahead
Galec - Centre Distributeur Edouard Leclerc can afford to take its position regarding price competition: Leclerc is both the leading and the most dynamic hypermarket chain in the country. In 2017, it again enjoyed the best value progression, the biggest increase in penetration among French households, and the best image, along with Lidl, within modern grocery retailers.

A question of size and management
Other retailers posted disparate results in 2017. Nonetheless, there is still correlation between the size, positioning and organisation of hypermarket chains and their performance.
