Global E-Grocery: Segments

Staples & cooking essentials segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Global E-Grocery is segmented by product type into Fresh Produce, Breakfast & Dairy, Snacks & Beverages, Meat & Seafood, Staples & Cooking Essentials, and Others. Staples & cooking essentials segment held the largest market share of XX.X% in the year 2020. The constant shopping for staples such as flours, food grains, and cooking necessities such as refined oil, which are basic requirements for many, is responsible for this substantial share. Lentils (dal), pulses, and rice are stapled foods in Indian households. Consumers have been stocking up on these necessities as a result of the pandemic, worrying that they may face lockdown regulations at any moment.

An online segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Global E-Grocery is segmented by payment channel into online and offline. Over the forecast period, the online payment channel is projected to expand at the fastest pace. The increasing preference for online payments is credited with the segment's rise. Cash and bank transfer payments were less common among Indian online customers. People are now avoiding physical contact to a greater degree as a result of COVID-19. Consumers are increasingly using online payment methods such as net banking, debit/credit cards, and the Centralized Payment Interface to prevent the spread of disease (UPI).

Market Dynamics


Availability of high-speed internet and greater adaptability

Surging demand for E-Grocery from numerous end-user industries is the key factor contributing to the market growth. Businesses and entrepreneurs are setting up online grocery stores as a result of frantic schedules, a growing working population, and boring commuting. With the advent of technology and the widespread availability of internet services, consumers are becoming more aware of the numerous shopping patterns that occur in society. The most desirable customer groups in the industry are Millennials and Generation Z. These are the most tech-savvy consumers who are willing to pay a premium for same-day product delivery. With the government supporting a digital economy platform and digital literacy, India's online grocery market is expected to see even more growth. Consumers in Tier-I cities such as Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, and Delhi, who are more adaptable to online shopping due to the availability of high-speed internet, greater adaptability to mobile devices, and logistical simplicity, are expected to drive the industry

Lower data rates and a rise in digital payments

The industry is also expected to benefit from lower data rates and the availability of more affordable smartphones. Increased internet penetration and the rise of digital payment have also contributed to the market's growth. The ever-increasing internet penetration in India, as well as an increase in digital literacy, is propelling the online grocery market in the region. Consumers now prefer an omnichannel shopping experience, thanks to the increasing availability of smartphones and low data costs. The government is increasingly releasing details, and as a result, concerns about the supply chain and workforce are decreasing. As a result of factors such as comfort, smart shopping, and hygiene issues, customers tend to shop for groceries online.


Trust issues regarding the freshness of food

Concerns about the freshness of fruits and vegetables, as well as high delivery fees, pose a challenge to the market development of the E-Grocery.
