Players like Just Eat, Delivery Hero or strongly pushed the global markets in the recent decade, and global fast food chains like Domino's have adopted their digital strategies, too. The fierce competition resulted in thinner margins as companies poach customers from each other, so currently the market is in its consolidation phase with major M&A deals happening in all regions. Since adoption rates for this market are already high, it is likely towill likely grow slower in the next years and probably convergedelivery models.
