The UK convenience market is forecast to grow 16.4% between 2019 to 2024, outperforming the total food & grocery market as shoppers continue to prioritise speed of product acquisition. Convenience multiples, symbol groups and co-operatives are set to gain market share by 2024, using economies of scale to overpower unaffiliated independents.
This report provides in-depth analysis of the key drivers and inhibitors of growth in the market, the market's hot topics, the size of the market and sub-sector growth, market shares of the major convenience retailers, profiles on the major convenience retailers, and also includes analysis of consumer activity in the market.
- Spend on food products will continue to drive the convenience market, rising an average of 4% per year during 2019-2024 as opposed to only 1% for non-food products.
- The greatest convenience market share gains by 2024 will be experienced by Tesco (using Booker to generate greater supply synergies), SPAR (growing through a lack of a like-for-like competitor) and Co-op (shedding its premium reputation to draw in more shoppers).
- The proportion of consumers using a c-store as the main place for their weekly shop rose from 15.6% in 2017 to 20.9% in 2019, as the condition that a grocer must carry a wide range is waning.
