What’s the forecast for the food and grocery industry?

The food and grocery sector thrived during the pandemic, largely due to the shutdown of the food service industry and the sector’s subsequent necessity, panic-induced bulk purchasing, and spending more time at home. The market has grown as a result of inflation. Consumer unwillingness to go out and socialize, and the reopening of several hospitality facilities, helped maintain the demand for groceries, particularly online, in 2021. As consumer behavior changes, we consume more food and drink at home, and inflation increases basket sizes. GlobalData predicts that the sector will continue to hold a higher share than had been predicted prior to the pandemic. This is true despite the fact that the food and grocery sector's share of overall retail will decline from its peak in 2020. This report will discuss market forecasts and key themes in the global food & grocery industry in 2022 and beyond. It covers:
  • Market drivers and inhibitors
  • Five-year forecasts and the impact of COVID-19
  • The performance of the online channel versus offline
  • Major trends in the market including rapid delivery, ambient retailing, supply chain disruption, and inflation
Assess developments within this sector to help your business thrive in 2022 and beyond.

According to UK-based data and analytics firm GlobalData, the number of roles companies in Asia-Pacific were looking to fill made up 16.3% of the cybersecurity jobs on offer globally – up from 10.1% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by South & Central America, which saw a 5.2 year-on-year percentage point increase in its share of cybersecurity roles.

GlobalData, Just Food’s parent company, tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

The approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

GlobalData says its research indicates which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels – and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for cybersecurity job ads in the food industry?

Despite Asia-Pacific’s overall growth, the fastest-growing country during the period was the UK, which accounted for 13% of cybersecurity job ads, up from 6.2% in the corresponding period a year earlier.

That was followed by Costa Rica (up 5.2 percentage points), India (4.1), and China (2.1).

In the round, the top country for advertised cybersecurity roles in the food industry is the US, which housed 27.3% of all roles on offer in the three months ending February.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for cybersecurity workers in the food industry?

Some 9.8% of all food industry cybersecurity roles were advertised in both Warsaw and in the Indian city of Bengaluru in the three months ending February.

That was followed by San Jose in Costa Rica with 5.2%, and Birmingham in the UK with 3%.
