BMI View: An acceleration in Ugandan real GDP growth in 2017 will provide support for food and drink spending in the country. That said, disposable incomes will not rise as much as spending on traditional foods and low-value products will decline in favour of higher-value items. The low level of urbanisation in the country will continue to act as a weight on the mass grocery retail sector that otherwise would experience more rapid growth over the course of our forecast period.

Key Trends & Industry Developments

  • Despite a slowdown in remittance growth, income sent back to Uganda from overseas (totalling an estimated USD1.1bn in 2016) will provide notable support for growth in food and drink consumption in the country. Food sales growth will come in at 14.2% in 2017, and is matched by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.6% between 2017 and 2020.

  • Non-alcoholic drinks sales, in local currency terms, will increase by 15.6% in 2017, and at a CAGR of 15.7% until 2020. The mineral and spring water segment will experience the slowest growth owing to the high cost of bottled water products in Uganda.

  • The development of Uganda's mass grocery retail (MGR) sector will be tempered somewhat by the country's low levels of urbanisation. While we expect the proportion of individuals living in urban areas to increase from 16.5% in 2016 to 17.9% in 2020, the low level of urbanisation will hold back growth in the MGR sector over our forecast period.
