Belgium – The Future of Foodservice to 2021

Summary

Belgium is the 25th largest economy in the world, with a nominal GDP of over USD$ 460 Billion, growing by approximately 1.6% in 2016. Government debt is high, at roughly 106% of GDP, with a budget deficit of 2.7% of GDP. In 2016, unemployment was reasonably high at 8.0%, and inflation stood at 1.8%. The country is divided into three regions, Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels. Although Wallonia was once the most prosperous region, having reaped the benefits of industrialization, Flanders now accounts for just under 60% of Belgium’s GDP, houses most of the country’s industries, and has the lowest rates of unemployment, by a considerable margin.

QSR channel in Belgium represents a relatively small market share compared to those found in other countries. In 2016, its total sales value was approximately EUR 1.3 Billion, and it accounted for 8.0% of the total revenue generated in the foodservice profit sector. The channel’s sales value increased at a CAGR of 3.0% between 2014 and 2016, and is forecast a marginally accelerated CAGR of 3.2% during 2016-2021. Although just 31.0% of QSR outlets are owned by chain operators, they generate 56.4% of the channel revenue. Panos is the largest QSR operator by a substantial margin, representing 18.4% of the channel’s value.

At a market valuation of just under EUR 6.0 Billion in 2016, the FSR channel is the largest foodservice channel by sales value, accounting for 36.1% of the overall revenue generated within the profit sector. Between 2014 and 2016, FSR experienced the joint-fastest value growth across the profit sector, with sales value increasing at a CAGR of 3.4%. It is forecast an accelerated CAGR of 3.8% during 2016-2021, which would make it the fastest growing channel.

FSR channel is highly fragmented. Just 4.1% of outlets are owned by chain operators, but they over-trade relative to this, generating 11.7% of the channel’s sales value. Over the next five years, revenue growth of chain operators is forecast to be markedly stronger than that of independents.

Scope

– The FSR channel is highly fragmented; just 4.1% of outlets are owned by chain operators, but they over-trade relative to this. Over the next five years, revenue growth of chain operators is forecast to be markedly stronger than that of independents. The FSR channel will be the greatest beneficiary of the paradigm shift towards takeaway transactions. The advent of delivery service apps will mean that consumers no longer need to compromise between convenience and the quality of their meal.
– A trend towards greater health consciousness is growing worldwide, and surveys highlighted large portions of Belgian consumers finding difficulty in eating healthily when out. This indicates there are growth opportunities to be found in offering ‘healthy indulgent’ options, a foodservice trend which has achieved great success in mature foodservice markets such as the US and UK.
– Belgium is a producer of world-renowned beer. While alcohol consumption among Belgian consumers has been steadily decreasing since the start of the millennium, tourism has been steadily increasing. As a consequence, the greatest growth opportunities for the pub, club and bar channel will be concentrated to tourism hot spots.

Reasons to buy

– Specific forecasts of the foodservice market over the next five years (2016-2021) will give readers the ability to make informed business decisions through identifying emerging/declining markets.
