The global online food delivery services market size is anticipated to reach USD 253.95 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 18.7% over the forecast period, according to a new study by Grand View Research Inc. The increasing use of smartphones and internet penetration contributes to the industry's growth. Moreover, the growth of the overall food delivery industry that allows customers to order food from a variety of restaurants is playing a pivotal role in driving the growth. The expansion of delivery aggregators, such as Zomato and Swiggy, in the Indian market over the last couple of years has further contributed to the industry's growth. The growing number of dual-income families and changing lifestyles & eating patterns are anticipated to favor the industry growth over the forecast period.
Furthermore, the growing demand for quick access to food at affordable prices is driving the growth. Benefits offered by online delivery services include heavy discounts, rewards & cashback offers, doorstep delivery, and multiple payment options. Furthermore, providers of food services are setting up large warehouses to store fresh produce for offering high-quality food, encouraging the adoption of online delivery services. In addition, infrastructural advancements in emerging economies offer growth opportunities to vendors operating in the industry. They enable companies to expand their restaurant partner network and delivery network in different cities. IoT integration enables users to opt for online food delivery services through voice commands, further easing the delivery process.
Such technological advancements are anticipated to drive industry growth.
