Competitive Landscape

The market is highly fragmented, with the presence of many local and independent restaurants. McDonald’s Australia, through both company-owned and franchised outlets, maintained its leading position in terms of value share. With the rise in shift toward healthy food consumption, players in the market are strategically developing new products with functional benefits. Independent restaurants in Australia have a strong foothold in the market, in terms of the number of restaurants. However, chained operators showed steady positive growth over the review period, and are expected to continue to grow year-over-year, during the forecast period.
