A Roy Morgan Single Source survey shows that Woolworths had 32.2% of Australia’s total grocery market (including fresh food) in the year to December 2017, an increase of 0.8% over the 2016 result. Coles Group’s share of the grocery market rose by 0.1% in 2017, to 28.8%. Aldi’s market share rose 0.8% to 12.1%, but IGA’s share fell 1.1% to 7.4%. Non-supermarket food retailers such as butchers, fruit shops, markets and convenience stores currently have an 11.8% market share, which is down by a combined 0.8% points. Meanwhile, very few customers only shop at one supermarket; although 72.7% of grocery buyers shop at Woolworths, just 8% shop only at Woolworths. Likewise, 70% of grocery buyers shop at Coles, but only 6.6% shop there exclusively. The store overlap in shoppers of the big two is very large, with over half of them shopping at both Coles and Woolworths.
