The ecommerce giant will account for 15% of UK chain retail sales in 2025, up from 9.1% in 2020.

Edge by Ascential, London, 02 June 2021: Amazon is to overtake Tesco as the UK’s largest retailer within the next four years, with UK sales expected to reach £77.1 billion by 2025, reveals a report from Edge by Ascential’s syndicated research arm, Edge Retail Insight.
In 2020, Amazon UK’s total sales were £36.3 billion. Tesco’s sales were almost double at £64 billion.
By 2025, Edge predicts that Tesco sales will rise to £76.1 billion, representing CAGR growth of 3.5%. These numbers represent total sales. In the edible grocery category, Amazon still represents a relatively small player in the UK, despite growth of 17.6% in 2020 at the height of the pandemic when health concerns saw more people buying essentials online, many for the first time.
The United Kingdom retail landscape and go-to-market planning report, based on forecasts powered by Edge’s proprietary data analytics technology, suggests that Sainsbury's will hold on to its position as the UK’s third largest retailer, with CAGR sales growing by 4.5% to reach £42.2 billion by 2025. CAGR sales at Asda, which has recently been purchased from Walmart by the British owners of the EG Group, are expected to grow by 2.4% to £26.7 billion by 2025 to come in at fourth place by 2025.
The report analyses the performance of chain retailers and channels performance in the UK as of March and explores unique market characteristics to determine where suppliers should focus their investment to win in the market.
Both Tesco and Sainsbury’s recently reported bumper food and online sales in their full 2020-2021 financial year results, but costs related to the COVID-19 and adding to fulfilment capacity to meet a steep incline in demand, cut into earnings for both retailers. But both firms said they expected profit to bounce back next year, with the focus firmly on their online operations.
Edge by Ascential’s data forecasts Sainsbury’s Argos to be the fastest-growing leading player over the next five years, expanding at a 2020-2025 CAGR of 17.3%.

It's good to get these types of threads, the ridiculous my manager said bollox so we can reassure ourselves that while the world is falling apart, Royal Mail managers are still being the low life c***s they have always been.
