UK discounters were the winners of the downturn, with expenditure growth of 89.1% between 2010 and 2015. However, discounter volume and expenditure growth is slowing due to fewer space opportunities and attracting new shoppers becoming harder, with total market growth between 2015 and 2020 more than half that achieved between 2010 and 2015.

The market will start to mature following rapid growth between 2005 and 2015, having won most of their new customers throughout the downturn, meaning that those who wanted to trade down will already have done so. The challenge for the discounters in the future will be in driving like-for-like sales, making professionalisation of the channel vital.

The grocers and non-fixed price discounters will capture an even bigger share of the discounters market over the next five years, with 58.2% and 27.8% shares of the overall market, respectively, in 2020. The grocers' growth is driven by Aldi, but Lidl's expansion and Netto's return to the UK market will contribute to the rise.

Consumers have traditionally favoured discounters for deals on branded goods across food and grocery and health and beauty and while these remain the largest segments driving footfall to the discounters; it is the home sectors which will make the greatest gains in the next five years, benefited by the recovery in the housing market.
