The Ethnic Supermarkets industry is composed of retailers that sell culturally diverse food for consumption at home. Demand for the industry's products has been driven by the growing Hispanic and Asian populations in the United States, which together make up a significant share of industry sales. This growth has created an environment in which ethnocentric food retailers have thrived. Fortunately for ethnic supermarkets, conditions are only expected to get better for the industry over the next five years. As the Asian and Hispanic populations continue to grow domestically and disposable income improves in line with the economy, demand for cultural foods will increase further.
Supermarkets in this industry retail food to specific ethnic groups. This includes Asian, Hispanic and other ethnic grocery stores that carry mainly specialty products not found in mainstream supermarkets.
