Leading retailers share of the U.S. online and offline grocery market in 2017

Walmart was far and away the leader of the grocery industry in the United States in 2017, controlling over a quarter of the market. Kroger, the next largest grocer, was a distant second with a 10 percent market share. Over 40 percent of the grocery market is occupied by smaller retailers.

Retail giant

Walmart, headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, was founded by Sam Walton in 1962. The company not only has the largest share of the U.S. grocery market but is the largest retailer overall in the world. In 2017, Walmart’s revenue exceeded 500 billion U.S. dollars.

E-commerce giant

Second only to Amazon, a recent survey shows that Walmart is a leading player in the online grocery market space. Food and beverage e-commerce sales of the retailer topped out at over 1 billion dollars for the U.S. market in 2018. Growth of the company’s e-commerce sales have been extremely strong. Average quarterly growth over the last fiscal year was 40 percent.
