22 Jan 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The Chinese food and grocery retail market accounts for the hugest share (around 57.5%) of the country’s overall retail market. It is expected to record an average growth rate of just over 13.1% per annum through to 2017, with sales set to reach nearly CNY 20.508 trillion by the end of the forecast period. Though the general retail channel keeps dominating the market, the online retail channel has shown the most impressive performance since 2012, and it will likely keep this up over the next four years at a CAGR of just over 17.3%.

In terms of product category, unpackaged food is the most popular and widely sold, with retail value sales of close to CNY6.215 trillion; the tobacco category follows closely after, with projected retail sales of just over CNY1.944 trillion by 2017.
