Inflation set to continue high with our forecast at 2.9% for 2013. As a result volumes will remain restricted as shoppers manage their spending more tightly to stick to budgets. Grocers are having to fight harder than ever for share of spend as basket sizes drop and shoppers make more considered purchases.
Tesco reported its first drop in profits for more than 20 years in 2012 prompting questions about the permanence of Tesco's dominance in its home market. In spite of a management refocus on the UK with investment in existing stores and revamping product offer, competitors are set to continue to steal share in 2013.
In 2011 click & collect focused on non-food but in 2012 it is all about food. Tesco is leading the charge with expansion of its drive-thru collection points but Asda and Waitrose are also rolling out similar services. Combining this with the trend towards top-up shopping by introducing collection points in c-stores will be crucial to winning share.
