Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Operators in the Tobacconists and Specialised Grocery Retailing industry have struggled with tough trading conditions over the past five years. Sales have suffered due to mounting price- and product-based competition from supermarkets and other grocery operators. Industry demand has also been altered by changing consumer attitudes towards smoking and healthy eating. Demand for premium food products has supported specialised retailers over the past five years, despite negative consumer sentiment through the latter half of the period. Industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 0.8% over the five years through 2016-17, to $5.9 billion. This growth is despite an expected decline of 0.2% in 2016-17.
