The use of 5G and 4G technology for payment mode purposes is predicted to have a favorable impact on market growth because it offers the user an uninterrupted experience. Furthermore, smartphone use is gaining traction in developing countries, proliferating the customer's reach to online purchasing. Therefore, the growing use of consumer devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets is expected to boost the market growth. The growing number of medium and small-scale businesses is further anticipated to augment the demand for quick commerce throughout the projection period. Medium and small-sized firms are expanding rapidly, particularly in South Africa, Russia, and India. Initiatives such as Start-up India and Make in India have aided in the development of a start-up ecosystem in the country that uses e-commerce for business, hence driving market growth.

Regions such as Asia and Western Europe saw a rapid adoption of quick commerce among the population with the age bracket of 20-35 years old. The behavioral shift within the younger demographic bracket happened owing to factors such as pricing, availability of a wide product range and brands, and convenience. Moreover, the growing penetration of the internet in developing countries combined with the e-commerce players entering the market space are further creating growth opportunities for the market.

The adoption of quick commerce is also creating new growth opportunities for the major market players to expand their operations from delivering food to electronics, pet care products, flowers, books, and stationery cosmetics. According to Glovo, in 2022, the company had a 120% surge in non-food retail orders and a 76 % surge in orders from supermarkets, representing new growth opportunities for the quick commerce vendors to increase their service offering while presenting different vendors opportunities to establish their presence in the market space.

The growing prevalence of online marketing in the quick commerce space is further aiding the expanding reach of quick commerce in 2nd and 3rd tier cities.

Analytics is playing a pivotal role in providing efficient services and a seamless experience to quick commerce customers. With increasing competition, it's difficult for rapid commerce enterprises to get product assortment right, but it's vital to their success. To maximize assortment for rapid commerce retailers, they must first analyze how demand varies by demographic and store. Because speedy delivery necessitates packaged and fresh products, it is even more critical to provide a unique range for each store. Data analytics will assist Q-Commerce enterprises in determining which products are frequently purchased in each store. It also aids in the identification of high-demand holes in rivals' platforms. Assortment analytics assist in identifying shifts in consumer actions across various long- and short-term demands. The key to growing sales is to shape inventory so that it corresponds to the overlap between consumer interest and market opportunity. They can discover the best blend using assortment analytics.

Despite the significant growth witnessed by the quick commerce landscape, factors such as high delivery charges, logistical issues, and regulatory compliances are impeding the growth of the market. The high cost of hub operations, such as maintaining dark stores and last-mile delivery fleets, is another major factor deterring the quick e-commerce market growth. For instance, in June 2023, Getir, a quick commerce delivery service company, announced its exit from France. The company cited factors such as the high cost of maintaining dark stores, lower profitability in the country, and the complex legal environment in the country to cease its operation. The French government's decision to identify dark stores as warehouses enables the local government to decide whether to allow dark store setups in city centers. As dark stores play a pivotal part in building the quick commerce supply chain, restrictions on opening dark stores within the city hamper delivery operations. Another factor restraining the market growth is the high delivery charges levied on smaller orders. Typically, consumers order through quick delivery apps in case of just-in-time groceries or impulse purchases. Large orders tend to have higher delivery charges, which deters the consumer from opting for quick commerce sites.
