About This Statistic
This statistic presents a projection of same-day delivery merchandise value and shipping fees generated in the United States from 2013 to 2018. In 2017, the order value of same-day delivery merchandise is projected to reach 3.35 billion U.S. dollars, up from 0.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2014. With the increasing growth of online shopping in all areas of consumer goods, customers have come to expect the same advantages of shopping online as when shopping in-store, namely the convenience of directly receiving the goods. An October 2014 consumer survey shows that whereas only 13 percent of digital buyers in the United States expect a same-day delivery option from their domestic online retailers, more than double the amount of buyers in Mexico expect to have the option available to them. Overall, same-day shipping is more popular in other global regions than in the United States, as only three percent of U.S. digital shoppers utilize it as their most frequently used shipping method. Same-day merchandise delivery services have also started to emerge in large metropolitan and urban areas with the necessary infrastructure to support such endeavors. Online grocery shopping and same-day delivery services go hand in hand but have not yet been received throughout the entire United States.
