Analyst Opinion

The demand for grocery delivery in the United States has been on the rise in recent years due to several factors.

Customer preferences:
One of the main reasons for the growth in the grocery delivery market is the convenience it offers to consumers. With busy work schedules and the desire for contactless delivery during the pandemic, many consumers have turned to online grocery shopping and delivery services. Additionally, the ability to compare prices and products from multiple stores at once has also contributed to the popularity of grocery delivery.

Trends in the market:
The grocery delivery market in the United States has become increasingly competitive with the entry of new players such as Instacart, Amazon Fresh, and Walmart Grocery. These companies have been expanding their services to more areas and offering additional features such as same-day delivery and subscription services. Another trend in the market is the increasing use of technology such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize delivery routes and improve the overall customer experience.

Local special circumstances:
The United States is a large and diverse country with varying levels of access to grocery stores and delivery services. In urban areas, where there is a higher demand for delivery services, the market is more competitive and there are more options available to consumers. However, in rural areas, there may be limited options for grocery delivery, which can create challenges for those who are unable to travel to a physical store.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the grocery delivery market in the United States, accelerating the shift towards online shopping and delivery services. Additionally, the rise of e-commerce and the increasing use of technology in the retail industry has also contributed to the growth of the grocery delivery market. The overall economic growth and consumer spending in the United States have also played a role in the expansion of the market.

Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a bottom-up approach, building on predefined factors for each market. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies, third-party studies and reports, as well as survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Global Consumer Survey). In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, GDP per capita, and internet connection speed. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing. The main drivers are internet users, urban population, usage of key players, and attitudes toward online services.
