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.

The posts were up on average for eight days before they were taken offline, a decrease compared to the equivalent figure a year earlier, indicating the required skillset for these roles has become easier to find in the past year, GlobalData suggests.

The cloud is one of the topics that GlobalData, our parent company and the source of the data for this article, has identified as being a disruptive force facing businesses in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforeseen challenges.

On a regional level, these roles were hardest to fill in South & Central America, with cloud-related jobs that were taken offline in the first quarter having been online for an average of 28.5 days.

At the opposite end of the scale, jobs were filled fastest in the Middle East and Africa, with adverts taken offline after three days on average.

Food manufacturers also found it easier to recruit cloud jobs than the wider market, with ads online for 77.8% less time on average compared to similar jobs across the entire jobs market.

Data from April

In April, the proportion of food manufacturers hiring for cloud-related positions rose significantly in April, compared with the equivalent month last year, with 48.1% of the companies included in GlobalData’s analysis recruiting for at least one such position.

This latest figure was higher than the 34.7% of companies that were hiring for cloud-related jobs a year ago and an increase compared to the figure of 42.3% in March 2022.

GlobalData’s job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of thousands of companies across the world, drawing in jobs as they’re posted and tagging them with additional layers of data on everything from the seniority of each position to whether a job is linked to wider industry trends.
