Supermarket share of retail food sales
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Large urban markets create the scope for the establishment of big
supermarket chains, with implications for the entire food supply
chain. In 2002, the share of supermarkets in the processed/packaged
food retail market was 33% in Southeast Asia and 63% in East
Asia (Figure 33). The share of supermarkets in the fresh foods market
was roughly 15–20% in Southeast Asia and 30% in East Asia
outside of China. The 2001 supermarket share of Chinese urban
food markets was 48%, up from 30% in 1999. Supermarkets are
also becoming an emerging force in South Asia, particularly in urban
India since the mid-1990s (Pingali and Khwaja, 2004).
