Market share of motor fuel sold in petrol stations in the United Kingdom in 2018, by brand

Brand market share of motor fuel sold in the United Kingdom (UK) 2018 This statistic shows the brand market share of motor fuel sold in petrol stations across the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018. Tesco dominated the motor fuel market with the most fuel sold through its many high-volume petrol stations throughout the country. Tesco was followed by BP and Shell which both had high market share values. Tesco's position indicates that the introduction of the so-called Hypermarket in the UK fuel retail market had a profound impact on the shape of the industry. Hypermarket groups, owned and operated by retailers including Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Asda, accounted for the vast majority of fuel sold by volume in the UK during 2017. Indeed, the practices of the hypermarkets has lead to groups such as the Retail Motor Industry Federation to call for the Office of Fair Trading to conduct an inquiry in to trading practices within the fuel retail industry.

The emergence of the hypermarket fuel retailer is one of many changes taking place in the fuel retail industry, with the declining number of forecourts serving as an indicator of the changing face of fuel retail in the UK.
