Despite its negative impact on inflation, the on-going price activity in the market will start to result in a recovery in volumes. In a sector once reliant on inflation for consistent growth, grocers will experience the slowest rates of value growth since the mid-1990s, at least until 2017, when the sector will return to a more normal pattern.

Both a driver and an inhibitor, the global trend for commodity price rises will limit the longevity of any price investment made by the Big Four supermarkets, as there is little room to dilute margin and only so far cost cutting can go.

Growth rates for the discounters will slow significantly in the coming years. New customers will be harder to come by as their acceptance among consumers has increased significantly. Fresh food will be a battleground for the discounters.
