Looking at the latest market development trend, total FMCG retail grew by 10% y-o-y in 2017. Revenue for the organized market grew 32% y-o-y to GEL 1.3 bn in 2017.

We expect organized FMCG retail to grow its current market share to 30% by 2023, reaching GEL 3.4 bn, driven by substitution of the unorganized market.
