    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    Market share concentration in the Ethnic Supermarkets industry is low. Supermarkets are often small businesses that cater to the local market. However, concentration has inched up over the past five years. Well-established ethnic supermarkets such as Vallarta and Bodega Latina have opened additional locations and expanded their existing operations to meet growing demand. This has allowed these companies to capture a larger share of the industry's market. Nevertheless, their presence still accounts for a small fraction of industry revenue. IBISWorld forecasts a small increase in market share concentration over the next five years, but the level is expected to remain low as more owner-operated stores dilute the revenue share.
