With the UK arguably one of the most advanced online grocery sectors in the world, we take a look at where the growth will come from next. Using survey data for over 20,000 consumers in 24 countries, we proved insight and analysis from across the globe, as well as case studies and examples of successes and failures. We have identified key markets which will see growth from online grocery retail

Key Findings

  • Use our country profiling to identify markets with the most potential
  • Use in-depth analysis and insight to identify those retailers with the ability to expand globally
  • Understand the issues surrounding click and collect to uncover its potential and make your online business profitable


Population growth will shape retailer expansion plans over the coming years, with different countries becoming suitable for online grocery at different times. Online relies on many different criteria to be fulfilled in order to be a success, one of the key ones is socially and technologically active group of younger consumers.

Retailers will need to tailor solutions to differing population densities both on a national and international level. Low density areas will be well suited to collection points which mitigate the need for long delivery journeys, while higher density areas will have a need for fast fulfilment to prove an alternative to convenience retailing

Online is not just about having a transactional website. Those retailers without one, and without the ability to invest still need to have a significant and active online presence. This needs to be via their own websites as well as through social media. Engaging shoppers on both will be fundamental to increasing footfall
