In 2015, grocery retailers in Australia was characterised by intense competition and price wars. The category continued to be dominated by supermarkets Woolworths and Coles; however, discounter Aldi gained share through its low price structure and extensive range of private label products, forcing supermarkets and other industry players to reduce the cost of everyday items in order to compete. In fact, in June 2015, a supermarket inflation survey by Deutsche Bank found that grocery prices dropped by 6% in the June quarter, representing the deepest decline in more than 18 months.

Industry Prospects

Competition within grocery retailers will remain fierce over the forecast period. The strong position of supermarkets Woolworths and Coles will continue to be challenged by competitors such as discounter Aldi and warehouse club Costco with similar offerings at lower prices. Furthermore, in 2015 German discounter Lidl, registered several trademarks in Australia, which might be an indication of its plans to enter the local market, which will further challenge the dominant position of supermarkets Woolworths and Coles.
