Grocers Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Global food and grocery retail sales are expected to read $11 trillion by 2018. This growth is due to many developing nations moving into a more modern format of selling and purchasing food.

Food and beverage sales in the United States mainly take place in grocery stores, but in many other countries, convenience stores and gas stations are the largest channel for food and grocery sales. Superstores, such as Wal-Mart and Target, and club stores, such as Sam’s Club and Costco, are challenging traditional supermarkets as the main source of grocery purchasing by consumers. Driven by an increased use of technology, online sales for food are slowly becoming a more common way for people to get their groceries.’s collection of market research studies on the grocer and food retail industry will help you stay competitive and grow in this market. We offer a full array of studies on subjects ranging from grocery stores and supermarkets, to specific food retailers with detailed analysis on their financial performance and trends. Also available are highly regarded outlook reports for the U.S. and global markets, along with a full library of country-specific studies for food grocers.
