Brazil: most popular food delivery apps 2017

As of June 2017, nearly two out of three (64 percent of) internet users surveyed in Brazil said that they had not used any food delivery app. Meanwhile, 29 percent of respondents stated that they had utilized iFood and three percent mentioned Uber Eats.

Access and behavior

When considering Brazil’s overall population, the penetration of food delivery apps might be even lower, since it has been estimated that less than half of the inhabitants of the South American country own at least one smartphone and use it at least once per month. Furthermore, most of Brazilian internet users who participated in another survey said that they had used mainly social media, banking, and entertainment-oriented apps.

Winds of change?

The outbreak of COVID-19 in Brazil during the first quarter of 2020 might have led Brazil’s online population to start changing their habits, however. On March 6, 2020 alone, downloads of delivery apps — including food delivery ones — in the country increased by over 120 percent compared to same date in 2019. The top three most searched apps in that category in Brazil includes iFood, Uber Eats, and Rappi.
