DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/n9crzj/online_food) has announced the addition of the "Online Food Shopping and Grocery Delivery in the U.S.: Future of Food Retailing" report to their offering.
Meeting at the crossroads of technology and service, online grocery shopping is one of the smallest retail segments for food and beverage, representing less than 4% of total online and offline retail sales. Yet it offers the grocery industry's most exciting potential as the fastest- growing channel, with annual growth rates in the double digits forecast to bring the market to nearly $100 Billion in 2019. Grocers who fail to follow shoppers online do so at their own peril, as U.S. consumers become increasingly comfortable with shopping for groceries via Internet and reliant upon home delivery and/or easy pickup of pre-placed orders.
Online Food Shopping and Grocery Delivery in the U.S.: Future of Food Retailing, examines the potentials and pitfalls of this burgeoning retail sector. The first chapter presents an up-to-the-minute overview of the business, examining business models and consumer reception, among other factors, while reviewing historical sales and projecting market growth through 2019.
The second chapter profiles more than 20 companies vying for a share of this business in the United States, from long-established services like Peapod and FreshDirect, to huge general merchandise marketplaces like Amazon.com (currently in a trial with the U.S. Postal Service to provide delivery of fresh groceries to consumers' doorsteps), to brash startups like Instacart and Uber. The final chapter profiles the state of the online grocery industry in other countries while exploring possible ramifications in the U.S., specifically, the United Kingdom, France, China, Japan, and Australia.
