UK: Food & Grocery 2019-2024

The UK Food & Grocery report offers a comprehensive insight into the food & grocery market in the UK, analysing the sector, the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes; as well as providing forecasts out to 2024. Consumer data is based on our 2019 UK How Britain Shops survey, using a panel of 10,000 nationally representative consumers.

UK Food & Grocery spend is expected to rise by 15.0% to £174.5bn in 2024, ahead of the growth seen in 2014-2019 as macro-economic conditions are set to improve and the lure of the discounters Aldi and Lidl begin to wane. However, while a recovery in volume growth is forecast, overall market growth will remain driven by inflationary pressures over the next five years.

- The UK food & grocery market is forecast to grow 15.0% between 2019-2024 - considerably higher than that achieved in the five years prior - as macroeconomic uncertainty drives inflation across core categories.
- The future of the UK’s relationship with the EU post-Brexit will be pivotal for food operators, with a no-deal Brexit likely to cause elevated inflation levels (as a result of imposed tariffs) and issues around availability.
- Sustainability is becoming an increasingly visible metric against which consumers rate supermarkets, with 93.5% of UK consumers stating that it is the responsibility of retailers to act sustainably.
- With almost a quarter of all consumers identifying as having a dietary requirement, supermarkets now need to fully integrate free-from ranges into their proposition, rather than considering it an optional extra.
- While l-f-l sales growth at the discounters is beginning to show signs of slowing, aggressive expansion plans from Aldi and Lidl - coupled with growing consumer awareness of the food proposition at non-food specialists such as B&M and Poundland - will see the discounter channel grow 25.0% over the next five years.
