Report strengths

  • the only report that presents all five CE markets in detail and a market as a whole
  • based on the very recent data – some news come from September
  • ability to compare key facts, figures in five CE countries thanks to comparable content of the report but on the other hand it takes into account each country specific character
  • contact details to key retail players 

Report answers following questions

  • what was the scale of the global financial crisis and economic downturn on grocery retail in each Central European country, which market segments/companies were hit the hardest?
  • what are the recent changes which have affected the Central European grocery retail; fiscal ones, takeovers, rebrandings, new players, insolvencies etc.?
  • what are the companies’ plans and areas they intend to invest in?
  • what are the perspectives for the grocery retail development in the Central European countries for 2010-2012? 

Why did we decide to prepare the report?

  • in 2009, for the first time after several years of sturdy growth, the grocery retail in the CE countries faced declines in many distribution channels; all are interested in details; how strong the impact was, which segments and companies were hit the hardest and how quickly the grocery retail is recovering
  • the condition and perspectives of the grocery retail are crucial data for many sectors in making business decisions; not only retailers, but wholesalers, manufactures and financial companies as well, and thus the report’s target group is significant
  • grocery retail is an important sector of national economies, but in all Central European countries the market is ever more challenging, thus the companies require more data, knowledge and insight
  • need of the comprehensive report on grocery retailing, covering several countries of one region
  • Central Europe is the region still showing good growth potential, thus remaining attractive for investors.

Extract from this report

  • In 2010 all economies are predicted to recover and will see positive GDP growth, with the exception of Romania , where a minor decline of the GDP is forecasted. Slovakia and Poland are expected to enjoy the highest growth rates in the CE region, of 3-4% year-on-year.
  • The two major supermarket chains in the Czech Republic are Billa and Albert, which together cover 59% of the segment. 

Market commentary by expert

The worsened economic conditions impacted negatively on grocery retail in the Central European region, with Poland being the only country reporting an increase in grocery sales. In addition, the depreciation of local currencies, mainly in Hungary, Poland and Romania, further affected the dynamics of sales nominated in euro.
Discounters were least hit by the crisis, as customers who more cautiously managed their budgets favoured this kind of stores. Discount stores’ key attributes, low prices combined with network density and thus their proximity to potential customers, allowed the segment to increase its share in 2009.
