Introduction

Despite the spectacular failure of Webvan, the US based pioneer of e-groceries, in 2001, entering the online market seems inevitable for grocers who do not want to lose the race for market leadership in the omnichannel world. Innovative, more cost-efficient logistics models are successfully reviving strategies that failed before, changing the traditional grocery sales scene.

Highlights

The global market for online groceries is expected to increase at double digit rates towards 2018, as consumers continue to embrace internet shopping. Low online penetration and significant pent-up demand create business opportunities for grocers.
While grocery is the biggest category in retailing, it is also the most resistant to the advance of online shopping, as grocers remain reluctant.
High delivery costs, low margins and slow profit generation, coupled with the spectacular failure of early business pioneers, discourage many potential players.
