Major Driver Impacting Market Growth

The growing online food service sector is significantly contributing to the growth of the food service equipment market. Online food service is growing due to the convenience offered, accessibility to all, expanding choices, reasonable prices, and others. Specifically, during the COVID-19 pandemic, as people needed to maintain social distancing and follow safety guidelines, customers started online ordering more frequently to reduce physical interaction between the customer and facilitator. This growth of the online food service sector required more food service equipment to be deployed to fulfill the market demand, resulting in a significant demand for food service equipment. For instance, according to a report by one of the big four management consulting firms Deloitte, the online food delivery sector is expected to grow by more than 10% yearly to approximately $25 billion across Europe by 2023. This growth is a result of quicker, more convenient options associated with rising incomes. In addition, according to a report by Google and Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the Indian online food industry is expected to reach $8 billion by the end of 2022, growing at 25-30%. Thus, the growing online foodservice sector will drive the growth of the food service equipment market.
