Australia - The Future of Foodservice to 2021

Australia - The Future of Foodservice to 2021

Summary

Australian economy has avoided a recession for nearly 26 years. This has aided the country’s foodservice market by maintaining high levels of consumer confidence, while also routinely boosting consumers’ real wages. This has, in turn, allowed for a greater frequency of non-essential foodservice occasions.

QSR channel experienced value growth at a CAGR of 2.4% from 2014-2016, making it the country’s largest foodservice market. This growth is expected to accelerate at a forecasted CAGR of 2.6% to 2021.

Overall, profit sector channels will see increasing average transaction prices fuel the majority of future value growth in the country’s foodservice market. Transactions will also rise, driven by Australia’s growing population.

FSR is the second largest foodservice channel in Australia, accounting for 25.3% of the total profit sector, and was valued at AUD$ 17.9 Billion in 2016. In recent years, the channel has benefited from a robust economy that has allowed FSR visits to remain an 'affordable luxury' for consumers seeking high quality meals.

Despite Australia’s historically strong 'coffee culture', the channel remains fairly small relative to the rest of the country’s foodservice profit sector. In 2016, the coffee and tea shop channel accounted for just 4.6% of the total profit sector revenue. Channel value growth is expected to accelerate in future, at a forecast CAGR of 2.5% between 2016 and 2021.
