Online Food Delivery Market

Online Food Delivery Overview

Online food delivery is a process in which customers order their food online through various food delivery websites and applications using their computers or smartphones, which are then delivered to their doorstep. These applications or websites offer payment options like debit cards, credit cards, digital payments, net banking, and cash on delivery. The customers can search for restaurants, choose from the menu available, select the payment method, all as per their preference and confirm the order. Consumers are adopting online food delivery due to its simplicity, supporting the growth of an already booming market.

Growth Drivers

Major Benefits Offered By Online Food Delivery Providers And Promotional Strategies Devised By Them

Online food delivery systems also provide multiple benefits to food service providers. One of the most significant advantages is savings in labor since the staff is not knotted up at the counter or on the phone. Other benefits of online food delivery for foodservice providers comprise more precise online orders, heightened convenience for the guest, simpler order processing, etc. Moreover, online food ordering also provides valuable customer information to food service providers that they can utilize to enhance the customer experience. In addition, making promotional strategies, such as targeted promotions and lucrative couponing strategies that contribute to the growth rate of the online food delivery market.

Restraint

Limited Acceptance of Online Food Delivery Among Local Food Joints

The main hindrance in the growth of this sector is that only smartphone users with proper internet connections can avail the facilities of online food delivery platforms. Elderly food business owners and local food joints are unwilling to move to online platforms due to unfamiliarity with the platforms and pre-existing. Moreover, a lack of technical knowledge about online food services, the setup, digital payments, and digital wallets among most restaurants and food outlet owners have resulted in the limited acceptance of online food delivery platforms. It thus can significantly hinder the market's growth during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 On Online Food Delivery Systems

In the first quarter of 2020, the growth of the global online food delivery market was impacted negatively during the initial phases of the pandemic due to lockdown restrictions all over the world, COVID-19 social distancing protocols, and fear of infections. Although online delivery was allowed, people were too scared to procure food from restaurants. As a repercussion of the coronavirus pandemic, online orders on Zomato and Swiggy fell critically due to the shutdown of restaurant & hotel operations. But during later phases of the pandemic, the online food delivery market boosted and acted as a savior of the sinking hotel and restaurant industry.

Global Online Food Delivery Market – By Platform Type

The online food delivery market can be divided into mobile applications-based and website-based categories based on platform type. Amidst the segmentation, mobile applications-based systems occupied a larger market share in 2021. Food delivery mobile applications are very convenient platforms for restaurants, franchises, and other food-selling businesses as they offer a simple way of providing consumers with a wide array of options via a single online mobile portal. Website-based segmentation also works on new features and makes them more user-friendly to capture a greater market share.

Online Food Delivery Market Share

Global Online Food Delivery Market – By Business Model

Based on the business model, the online food delivery market can be divided into two categories: platform-to-consumer delivery and restaurant-to-consumer delivery models. The platform-to-consumer delivery model has two types - the order-focused food delivery systems and the logistics-based food delivery systems. In contrast, the restaurant-to-consumer food delivery model is mainly a full-service food delivery system. Amidst these categories, the order-focused food delivery system, which forms a part of the platform-to-customer delivery model, accounts for the largest market share in 2021.

Global Online Food Delivery Market – By Payment Methods

The global online food delivery market can be divided into two categories based on the mode of payment- online payments and cash on delivery. Amidst these two, online payments account for the greater market share in 2021. Online payment options include payments via debit cards, credit cards, payment portals, net banking, etc. Rising digital literacy and awareness about digital money among the consumers, cashback, and couponing strategies adopted by food delivery service providers to incentivize online payments are the reasons responsible for its larger share. In terms of cash on delivery, it is preferred by that section of customers who remain dubious about the security of their online payments.

Global Online Food Delivery Market – Regional Insights

On the basis of regions, the online food delivery market has been segmented into five categories- North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. North America accounts for the largest overall revenue market share in 2021. Significant consumer preferences for fast food and changing hectic lifestyles have helped the region maintain a steady growth rate. North America is followed by other regions, with Asia-Pacific growing with the highest CAGR. This high growth rate of Asia-Pacific can be attributed to the remarkable performance of the market in countries like China and India.
