Colombia - The Future of Foodservice to 2021


"Colombia - The Future of Foodservice to 2021", published by GlobalData, provides extensive insight and analysis of the Colombian Foodservice market over the next five years (2016-2021) and acts as a vital point of reference for operators or suppliers.

The Colombian economy has made a strong recovery since the 2008 financial crisis. GDP per capita has been steadily rising, at a CAGR of over 5% in recent years, and the foodservice sector has been a clear beneficary of this trend.

From 2014-2016, the value of the sector increased at a CAGR of 3.4%, from COP 34.2 trillion to COP 36.6 trillion. However, due to a weakening of the Colombian peso over this period, this was a contraction at CAGR -16.2% in US dollars. The foodservice sector is forecast a marginally accelerated CAGR of 3.6% during 2016-2021, and is expected to be valued at COP 43.6 trillion by 2021.

The QSR, FSR and pubs, clubs and bar channels accounted for approximately 69.7% of the total sales value of the sector in 2016. The pub, club and bar channel is the largest by a substantial margin, represening 41.0% of the sales value of the sector.

Growth has been, and will to continue to be driven by rising transaction numbers, with the potential for outlet growth hampered by urban areas approaching saturation. Bogot currently generates roughly a quarter of the country's GDP, so the largest growth opportunities will be found in the surrounding areas. However, grand infrastructure projects are due to be launched in future years, which should see growth of satellite towns, providing alternative growth opportunities.

- Colombia has an unusually prominant retail sector, with a 14.9% market share. There is great competition between the QSR and retail channels. This is primarily due to the thriving bakery sub-channel (in Retail), whose average transaction value is roughly half that of the QSR channel. This popularity is a consequence of the country's stark wealth inequality, prompting low-income consumers to favor better-value options.
- Some QSR operators are beginning to position themselves as more upmarket, with higher quality menu items at a standard reminiscent of the FSR channel, and a dine-in atmosphere which is halfway between QSR and FSR. The channel is therefore expected to become more flexible, offering more varied experiences and appealing to a wider consumer demographic.
- Despite its dominance in the foodservice sector, the pub, club and bar channel is forecast acclerated growth during 2016-2021, at a CAGR of 3.4%. Rising disposable incomes and a steadily growing economy will help drive an increase in alcoholic beverage sales. The recent success of a brewrey serving a range of beers and ales in a British-style pub, indicates growth opportunities to be found in pursuing similar ventures.
