Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Strong competition from the major supermarkets has created unfavourable trading conditions for the Delicatessens industry over the past five years. Low prices across numerous product lines in the major supermarkets have enticed consumers away from specialised retailers, hurting industry demand. However, the rising premiumisation trend among some consumers has buoyed the industry over same period. Industry revenue is forecast to grow at an annualised 2.1% over the five years through 2015-16 to reach $900.5 million. However, a 7.1% revenue decline in 2010-11 has skewed this growth figure. Industry revenue is forecast to grow at a modest 1.4% in 2015-16.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The industry has a moderate level of capital intensity. IBISWorld expects that for every dollar spent on wages, industry operators invest $0.16 in capital.

Temperature-controlled displays and commercial refrigerators are the industry's largest capital expenses, along with store fit-out when the delicatessen is first established.
