The Top 20 Supermarket Chains in Nigeria 2018 - Key Findings & Future Outlook: Featuring Addide, Citydia, Ebeano, Shoprite, and Spar -


The "The
Top 20 Supermarket Chains in Nigeria"
report has been added to's

This report provides the most up to date analysis of the leading
supermarket chains in Nigeria, where the past five years have seen a
major change.

During the economic downturn, some domestic players still managed to
grow and fierce competition should be expected between the leading
foreign retailers in the country.

The report analyses the winners and losers in the supermarket sector and
what it means for the future of grocery retail in Nigeria.


  • Nigeria has one of the most dynamic consumer markets in Africa, but
    its supermarket retail sector is highly immature.
  • Some key features of that immaturity are a lack of real national
    supermarket chains: the largest chain, Shoprite, has stores in 13
  • A major factor inhibiting development in the value and discounter
    sector is dependence on (more expensive) imported products. After the
    currency crisis, domestic manufacturing has acquired more urgency, but
    it will be a slow process to build out domestic FMCG manufacturing
  • There are a few emerging Nigerian-owned supermarket chains (e.g. Hub
    Mart) but they are small and it is too early to say whether they can
    scale effectively. Lack of finance, infrastructure and an immature
    supply chain all work against rapid store network growth.
