2018 Online Food Report
Who’s winning and losing among the 43 leading online food retailers, the rise of Amazon, and how traditional grocery chains like Kroger and Albertsons are rising to the digital challenge.
Ecommerce accounted for just 3% of online retail purchases groceries in 2017, but in an otherwise slow-growing market for groceries, online sales grew 26.5% year over year. Ecommerce also represented 21% of the growth in the $1 trillion-plus U.S. grocery market. The digital disruption of food retailing is just beginning, as Amazon integrates its 2017 acquisition of Whole Foods and the whole industry moves to an omnichannel model that includes thousands of pickup points for online orders and the rapidly expanding availability of on-demand delivery.
The 79-page 2018 Online Food Report reveals detailed data on the 43 leading online food and beverage retailers, broken down by six subcategories. This report also provides an analysis of Amazon’s prowess in online food sales, and how Walmart—America’s biggest grocer—is fighting back.
