Abstract

In A Structural Analysis of the UK Grocery RetailMarket, Robert Duke used Michael E. Porters framework for thestructural analysis of industries to analyse the UK grocery retailmarket. Since this article was published in 1989, many potentiallysignificant changes and developments have happened in this market,making an update of Dukes 1989 analysis of interest. Sources of evengreater power over suppliers enjoyed by retailers can be traced toimplementations of new technologies in grocery retailing, and to thegrowth of panEuropean concentrations of buying power, while the threatposed by pricecutting new entrants will force incumbents to use more ofthis power. Competition in the market itself will be influenced bysuperstore saturation, the emergence of a Big Three ofretailers, and by potentially significant new entrants, able to defeatthe markets barriers to entry. This will create a more complexcompetitive structure.
