This Key Note Market Assessment analyses the forecourt retailing market, which is comprised of sales of fuel and non-fuel products from service stations. The industry has been influenced by a number of factors over recent years, including both economical and political issues, which have caused the market's value to fluctuate during the 6-year review period between 2006 and 2011.

In terms of the fuel market, sales dropped in 2009 due to the recession; there was a global slump in fuel prices, coupled with a reduction in volume sales as consumers limited their spending to essential items. Since this time, retail sales of fuel have risen; however, there remains some caution among consumers which has been influenced further by the recent news that the UK has entered another recession. With regard to fuel prices, the cost of crude oil and fuel duty are the largest influences on the price for consumers, both of which have generally been rising between 2010 and 2011. Both of these factors have helped to push the value of the fuel market up since 2009.

Sales of non-fuel items have similarly mirrored those of fuel; Key Note estimates that there was a decline in sales in 2009, however, the sector's value has increased since then. The dip in sales was due to the economic climate of the time, with factors that influence the market again mirroring fuel retailing; consumers reduced their expenditure on non-essential items, while fewer visits to forecourts reduced the number of sales, thereby also driving down the market's value.
