Convenience Market Report 2020

Two reports in one: a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the Convenience channel in the UK including detailed market sizing, competitive landscape and consumer metrics, as well as a dedicated coronavirus section to show the impact lockdown has had on shopper behaviour (published July 2020) PLUS a post-coronavirus update with current and projected market sizing and future outlook for the channel (published September 2020).

Our robust methodology combines our flagship Convenience Tracking Programme (CTP) incorporating 20,000 shopper interviews a year, together with insights from Lumina Intelligence’s Channel Pulse survey – our weekly measure of consumer behaviour and attitudes across channels. The report has been compiled by an experienced team of analysts and includes market sizing built up from our Grocery Data Index (GDI) report.
