Online Grocery Market to Grow at a CAGR of 20.63% Due to COVID-19

PUNE, India, April 16, 2020 — The Coronavirus pandemic has shaken up several industries in 2020.  The manufacturing industry, for example, has taken a hit in terms of production due to the closing down of factories as a result of increased focus on promotion of isolation practices. However, some markets are growing tremendous growth during this period. The demand for online delivery services has gone through the roof. One such market that is showing considerable growth during these times of peril is that of the global online grocery market. The consumers are preferring to stay indoors and place grocery orders in order to reduce the chances of contracting the virus. This is especially true in cases of families with infants and the elderly. There has been a massive surge in terms of the number of new users that are resorting to online applications for the delivery of groceries. In the U.S., for instance, global e-commerce giant Amazon has put the new grocery customers on hold due to the monumental surge in demand. The company is prioritizing grocery delivery to the existing customers.

The global online grocery market is also gaining further traction with advancement in internet infrastructure and the proliferation of smart devices. The customers are also being provided with an option to collect their orders directly from stores after processing payment through online transactions. This allows the customers to avoid large crowds at supermarkets and reduces the risk of being affected by the virus. Grocery applications are also focussing on delivering farm-fresh products directed to the consumers. Fresh Direct, LLC., for example, delivers freshly procured vegetables and fruits directly to the consumer’s doorsteps. It is estimated almost 10% of the consumers in the U.S. use grocery applications frequently. Packaged consumer goods are extremely popular among consumers.  With the disruption caused by the digitization in retail markets, many of the traditional grocery shops are venturing into the online grocery delivery model through mobile applications.
