Analyst Opinion

Driven by COVID-19 lockdowns, Online Grocery Delivery demand increased rapidly with many new start-ups and established retailers fighting to respond, signaling a landmark year in 2021. Traditional grocery retailers quickly set up logistics, warehouses, and online sales channels for customers to be able to conveniently purchase their daily needs and have them delivered to their doorstep. This growth will slow down in 2022 due to the uncertain macroeconomic environment causing consumers to be more price-conscious and cut out discretionary spending.

Traditional retailers have remained the full basket-offerings option for both online and offline. Players such as Walmart, REWE, Ocado, and Tesco have a large assortment with same-day, scheduled delivery. Consumers are turning to Meal Kits as a replacement for these offerings. Quick Commerce is replacing the convenience stores concept with smaller product offerings, focused on top-up and confectionery items.

China is by far the leader of the Online Grocery Delivery market due to the mature Online Food Delivery market with the most established companies using existing logistics systems and a strong customer base to enhance their product offerings. For example, Meituan has a well-established logistics operation to be able to deliver groceries in under 20 minutes.

As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies, third-party studies and reports, as well as survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Global Consumer Survey). In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, GDP per capita, and internet connection speed. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing. The main drivers are internet users, urban population, usage of key players, and attitudes toward online services.
