The Ethnic Supermarkets industry is composed of retailers that sell culturally diverse food for at-home consumption. Demand for the industry's products is primarily driven by the growing Hispanic and Asian populations in the United States. Furthermore, despite a small dip in the number of immigrants over the past five years, the two population groups still experienced steady growth during the latter half of the five-year period to 2017. As the economy continues to improve, an uptick in per capita disposable income and consumer confidence is expected to help industry revenue grow during the period. Conditions are expected to get better for the industry over the five years to 2022. As Asian and Hispanic populations continue to grow, demand for cultural foods will increase.
Supermarkets in this industry retail food to specific ethnic groups. This includes Asian, Hispanic and other ethnic grocery stores that carry mainly specialty products not found in mainstream supermarkets.
