Aldi, Lidl & Waitrose Gain UK Market Share

 

In an increasingly 'polarized' UK grocery market, Aldi, Lidl and Waitrose have gained share from the UK's top retailers, according to the latest figures from Kantar Worldpanel.

In the 12 weeks to 9 June 2013, Aldi took a record market share of 3.6%, a 29.9% increase on the year before. Lidl and Waitrose seized a 3% and 4.9% share respectively, with the latter showing growth of 10.4%. 

Amongst the top four retailers - Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and the Co-Operative Group, just Sainsbury's increased its share year-on-year, growing slightly from 16.6% to 16.7%. Tesco dropped by half a percentage point to 30.5% share, while Asda fell to 16.9%. While Morrisons market share dipped slightly to 11.6%, its sales increased by 1.2%, an improvement on the 0.3% sales growth posted in Kantar's last quarterly report. The Co-Operative Group's market share dropped to 6.3%.

Growth in the grocery market stood at 3%, down from 3.9% recorded in the same period last year, a reduction which Kantar Worldpanel attributed to the positive impact of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee last June. (18 June)
