Research and analysis highlights

Grocers' non-food development is entering a new era. Following years of growth in areas like music & video and homewares, Tesco and Asda are leveraging their experience. They are pushing boundaries of range coverage and in-store execution and, perhaps more importantly, they are aggressively pursuing multichannel, multi-format strategies.

Grocers' non-food growth is starting to have a major impact on the wider market. Grocers already account for more than one in 10 pounds spent on non-food in the UK. By 2011 we expect grocers will account for 12.3%. As their influence increases and breadth of their offer diversifies, we expect a wider group of retailers will come under pressure.

Electricals is set to be grocers' fastest growing non-food category between 2006 and 2011. During 2006 electricals was the fastest growth retail market overall in the UK and that success is set to continue into 2007 and for the rest of the five year forecast to 2011.
