India’s online food ordering sector saw a strong growth rate in the number of daily orders, growing consistently at 15 per cent on a quarterly basis from January to September last year, according to a report from RedSeer Consulting.
The growth has resulted in the number of orders on a daily basis clocking an average of 400,000 during the September quarter. It has also meant players, including Swiggy, Zomato and Foodpanda, are investing in in-sourcing deliveries.
In the September quarter, self-deliveries grew to 56 per cent of the total number of orders done by the food-tech sector in India. In-house deliveries stood at 46 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2016.
