Industry Preview

Supermarket and grocery stores account for a significant share of food store sales in India. This sector saw a rapid growth both in terms of space & scale post 2005. This market in India is expected to grow by USD 268.22 billion from 2020 to 2025, progressing at a CAGR of 8.02% according to the latest report by Technavio.

Between 2013 and 2019, India’s food & grocery market doubled from $300 billion to $600. Growth in this period was fueled by traditional retailers, popular mom & pop stores that offer an assortment of products of daily use.

In the years leading to 2024, researchers from RedSeer Consulting and BigBasket Brand Intelligence expect another $200 billion jump, however driven by newer segments.

Traditional retail’s space shall continue to shrink & in the process cede more space to the organized large marts. What is now known as Modern trade shall gain more superiority over other modes of sale & purchase. These are evolving into more organized market places for end consumers as well as wholesalers. It is also estimated that modern retail shall grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16%, & it will occupy more than 6% of the food & grocery market by 2024. There are a number of reasons for such optimism. Most compelling of these is the government’s decision in February this year to allow 100% foreign direct investment (FDI) in the food retail market.

Given the sheer size of India’s grocery market, there shall be seen a renewed zeal by the foreign investors to snap opportunities that exist in organized trade. We have already seen large chunks of investments enter into our country that has also offered heft to the entire food processing ecosystem.

We see great improvement in products, promotions, packaging, logistics & allied arenas.

We believe there can’t be a better time to jump into the fray given the favorable environment guiding retail business. Even when most of the retailers are busy realigning their models to offer a bigger product range in a more optimized space, we think there is more scope of improvement for fulfilling consumer experience. This trend is now fast percolating into tier 2 cities & upcountry towns / urban centers as per a RedSeer report.

We realize that the food retail industry is a high-volume, low-margin business, with cut throat competition from all quarters. This includes grocery stores, supermarkets, mom & pop stores as well as wholesalers & convenience stores. The kind of stuff offered at such stores make the industry a non-cyclical one.

In India, even when small chains and independent grocers continue to hold a large share of the food & grocery market, it is the national chains like Reliance, D' Mart, Big Bazar, More, Metro that are spreading their foothold at a great space. Then there are the mass businesses like Wal-Mart that are competing with such fast growing chains at some of locations by offering lower prices through lower cost structures. Walmart is incidentally world’s No. 1 seller of groceries. Supermarkets like ours are attempting to outgrow such threats by building complementing large space superstores.


By a fairly convincing estimate, Supermarkets are grocery stores with over 175 - 200 cr. in revenue per annum with average space of 12 - 15K sq. ft. These often have a selection of food and non - food items, with the addition of specialty departments such as frozen foods, bakeries, apparels, and kitchen ware, Pharmacy, home appliances, furnishings etc. Then there are combination stores that are a mix of superstores and drugstores under one roof, with an average of 55,000 square feet in area of operation. We call these Hypermarkets also.

From top lines & bottom-lines for the owners, this industry shall be responsible for the employment of well over 2.5 crore new jobs by 2030 and a lion's share will be the offline + online model which will account for nearly 50 per cent of the total retail employment addition (Source: nasscom).

What is known as Retail 4.0 will result in a significant rise in the size of the domestic market, job creation and exports. The changing demand and supply drivers are likely to accelerate the growth momentum, with the India retail market reaching up to $1.5 trillion by the financial year 2030. Retail sector is one of the growth engines for the nation's economy, with a doubledigit contribution to the GDP, and employment to nearly 35 million individuals in FY 2020. "The government of India is in process of formulating the National Retail Trade Policy which will not only create a conducive environment for retail trade but will also simplify policies hindering the growth of the sector in the country”(Amitabh Kant, CEO, Niti Aayog).

We will ensure that we hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards by meeting our customers’ needs precisely and completely whenever they patronize our products. We will cultivate a working environment that provides a human, sustainable approach to earning a living, and living in our world, for our partners, employees and for our customers.

1. Non -Availability of Quality Manpower

Even when this sector of supermarkets has the potential to outgrow other businesses, there is paucity of quality manpower in retail sector. That may not qualify as too much of a weakness, yet there is so much to etiquette, inter personal relationships, customer assistance, care & emotion that can make a difference to how a large supermarket of our size can reach its optimum level of operation & efficiency.

2. Operational / Transit Challenges

Considering the fact that our stores shall be located far & wide, there is an inherent challenge to timely delivery, form & shape of goods getting altered as well as loss in transit threats that can pose some challenge.

3. Not the First Movers

Mahaveer Trading being a newbie in the sector does not have the first movers’ advantage that some others in the segment have. It shall take us some time before becoming smart, efficient, and economically viable & operationally suave.

4. Turnover / Footfalls

Beginning with the handicap of no inherited loyalty for its brand, our supermarkets may take a while to make their own loyal customer base. That being the case, our revenues / turnover, cash flows & margins can take a while to sum up. This can only be offset with adequate flow of indigenous funds till the stores attain the break-even threshold & turn profitable in the ultimate analysis. It may happen that our achieved turnover /incomes do not match the financial estimates and predictions.

On an average, every 4th customer is looking at a new experience both in terms of freshness, quality & ambience. From upswing lower income groups to average middle class & upper middle class segments there is yearning for more outlet space all round.

5. New Product Preferences

Our supermarkets shall continue to innovate, add more products to our shelf & include more tastes in food & non –food segments. These can be in the form of organic foods, vegetables, fruits, cakes, bakery, snacks, drinks, beverages, in time to come.


1. Changes in Govt. Policy / Economic Scenario

As we know that economic conditions have enhanced worldwide, customers are having high purchasing powers. Lot more people prefer shopping at large marts for their daily needs than perpetuating their age old association with a small vend round the corner. However all this can change, should there be a policy change or tweak by the govt. or regulatory authority that puts any additional burden on the consumer or retailer. This can be by way of taxes, audit, ceilings on costs, manufacturing costs etc.

2. New Trends in the Consumer Behaviors

Due to the dynamic nature of customer expectations along with the emergence of e-commerce platforms & a race to outfox others by way of disruptive, discriminatory pricing, supermarkets such as ours can have a negative impact on forecasts.

3. Direct And Indirect Competition

All grocery supermarkets can face threats from competitors. Leader pricing, discriminatory pricing, predatory pricing along with factors like loyalty programs, equity offers etc. can pose challenges to the new players. Some of the challenges / threats can come from locations that do not either match with the space dimension, brand design, image or catchment.

4. Regulatory Pressures

New laws & regulations can pose challenges to the existing structures as well as emerging ones. However these can get diffused by our ability to forecast markets, evolving market dynamics & policy measures based on empirical evidence, consistent research & staying in sync with business environment. Part of the pressure can emanate from enhanced salaries to retain talent & loyalty of workers and employees.

Pricing Strategy

Our pricing strategy has been governed directly by four major factors.

1. Ability to extract the best deal from our supply partners. 2. No profit, no loss theory to begin with. 3. Keeping our profits permanently low after breaking the threshold. 4. Low cost infrastructure.

1. Equitable fair Pricing

Mahaveer Trading believes in fair practice pricing. While we cannot ignore the market dynamics, we would follow our no-profit, no loss pricing policy till we have attained scale & a scope to build on our topline & bottom lines. We shall offer all our products & brands at the most reasonable prices that are either at par with the best in modern trade businesses or an even levels of procurement if needed. The goal is to attract consumers in search of big yet fair price bargains. Those bargain hunters, we believe are likely to buy other items, which is how the store shall remain operationally viable.

2. Everyday Low Pricing

Our Supermarkets shall ensure that consumers get the best deals every day. With a forthcoming supply partnership, we shall lay out a price platform that leads buyers into our stores without a second thought. Special promotional prices in league with preferred partners shall also ensure uninterrupted customer engagement till some loyalty is earned by us.

Essentially our discounts are permanent raging from low to marginally better or the best bargains than anyone else of such scale & size. This we call everyday low pricing,

3. Loyalty Discount Programs

One way supermarkets can collect valuable customer data is to create a loyalty program. This requires customers to opt in to a data-collection program, which tracks their purchases. Such programs offer several price strategy enhancements. First, joining the program qualifies customers to receive lower prices.

3. Direct And Indirect Competition

All grocery supermarkets can face threats from competitors. Leader pricing, discriminatory pricing, predatory pricing along with factors like loyalty programs, equity offers etc. can pose challenges to the new players. Some of the challenges / threats can come from locations that do not either match with the space dimension, brand design, image or catchment.
