Supermarkets & Grocery Stores in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Supermarkets & Grocery Stores in the US

The Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry has grown over the five years to 2018, benefiting from a strengthening economy. As per capita disposable income increased during the period, many consumers shifted to premium, organic and all-natural brands, helping lift industry revenue. Conversely, inflationary food costs have caused many consumers to continue purchasing private-label brands. Despite revenue growth during the period, industry operators experienced intensifying competition from alternative retailers. Over the five years to 2023, the industry is anticipated to grow steadily, resulting from rising discretionary income and consumer preferences.

The Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry makes up the largest food retail channel in the United States. Establishments in this industry retail general lines of food products, including fresh and prepared meats, poultry and seafood, canned and frozen foods, fresh fruits and vegetables and various dairy products. Delicatessens primarily retailing food are also included.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
