BMI View: Taiwan's food and drink industry will experience positive growth over our forecast period, driven by strong growth in the drinks and mass grocery retail sector. The alcoholic drinks market is poised for robust growth on the back of modernised consumption patterns and premiumisation trends - driven by high disposable incomes. In the mass grocery retail sector, intensifying competition and strong purchasing power will support rapid sales growth particularly in the convenience and hypermarket formats. We hold a more downbeat outlook for the food sector, which we forecast to grow tepidly throughout our forecast period.
