Grocery market share in the United States in 2018, by store type

In 2018, supermarkets in the United States enjoyed an approximate 60 percent share of the grocery market. Warehouse stores and superstores accounted for about one fourth of the market, putting this store type in second place.

Food shopping behavior in the U.S.

On average, the American household spent an annual amount of just under 8 thousand U.S. dollars on food in 2018. Food expenditures in the United States have gone up by almost 2 thousand U.S. dollars since 2010. In 2018, as well as 2019, the average U.S. household made an average of one and a half grocery shopping trips per week. The approximate number of trips per week has decreased slightly in recent years. Between 2006 and 2010, consumers in the United States went shopping for groceries twice per week on average.

Online groceries

The online grocery store is a relatively new concept that is becoming increasingly popular around the world. U.S. online grocery shopping sales amounted to almost 25 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, a number that is expected to double by 2022. In 2018, most American consumers (roughly 40 percent) only purchased small grocery amounts, while less than ten percent did (almost) all of their shopping online.
