Ruling the roost: Large fast-food chains have continued to dominate the industry

The Takeaway Chicken Shops industry has moderately grown over the past five years. Strengthening competition among fast-food operators has constrained industry expansion. Despite this, demand for fast food has grown, with time-poor consumers seeking quick alternatives to cooking at home. Rising awareness of dietary health and nutrition has weakened demand growth for products with high fat and salt content. In response, industry players have expanded their product ranges to incorporate healthier alternatives. New menu options and the expansion of major players’ store networks have driven industry revenue growth. Industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualised 3.7% over the five years through 2017-18, to $3.6 billion. However, revenue is expected to fall by more.
