Globally, China is a leading retail and e-commerce market. It was the largest e-commerce market in 2016 with sales of nearly USD 366.1 billion. The e-commerce industry is being aided by the supportive policies of the Chinese government. The government is driving the growing penetration of the e-commerce industry, especially in the rural areas, by building infrastructure to aid the e-commerce sector regionally. Although the e-commerce industry is dominated by apparels and footwear, online grocery is a small but fast-growing segment in the industry. China is also a significant regional industry for e-grocery in the world.

Alibaba and JD.com are the major players in the China online grocery industry. The packaged food sector dominates the online grocery sector in the country. Packaged foods account for over three-fourths of the sector’s online sales. The segment witnessed a rapid growth between 2012 to 2016, growing at a CAGR of 61%. Packaged foods reached an online sales value of USD 18.4 billion in 2016. Baby food, dairy, rice, pasta, and noodles were the leading items purchased online by the Chinese consumers within the packaged foods segment. They together accounted for nearly 77% of the packaged food sales on the online grocery platforms. Baby foods and dairy were the largest sub-segments, according to the total sales within the category. Packaged foods are followed by drinks and fresh foods as the other significant segments in the industry.

Market Analysis

The China online grocery market is being driven by the higher penetration of internet and smartphones. Smartphones have become prominent devices through which Chinese consumers not only research but also purchase edible goods. Online grocery retailers often offer exclusive discount and promotions on purchases made through mobile phones, thus, making mobile applications a significant retail channel in China. The rise in the online payment applications and the shift towards going cashless is aiding the industry growth.

The high population density in the urban areas of China is also aiding the online grocery industry growth. The large population of millennial consumers who are willing to experiment more with new platforms and try out international brands is driving the industry. As the industry is focussing more on maintaining its customer base in tier 1 cities, the major players are also looking to expand to tier 2 and 3 cities and towns. The rising middle class with higher disposable incomes and more spending power is driving the online grocery industry in China.

The industry is being propelled forward by the rise in infrastructural support for e-commerce ventures and continuous improvement in the technology. The innovations expected to take place in logistics technology will further aid the industry growth. The convenience of online grocery platforms is a major driving factor for the industry. The attractive prices and offers provided by the platforms, such as discounts, cashback offers, flexible return policy and exclusive subscription offers, like low delivery charges, are ensuring customer retention along with attracting new customers. The expansive choices available on these platforms, especially of international brands, is also aiding the industry. These platforms are also offering greater assurance of quality to the consumers along with faster delivery times, which is providing further impetus to the industry growth.
