India’s Food Services Market Set to Double in Next 7 Years

Exciting news for all foodies out there! The Indian food services market is predicted to reach ₹9-10 lakh crore in the next seven years, according to a report by Swiggy and Bain & Company. Currently standing at ₹5 lakh crore, the market is set to see a staggering 10-12% year-on-year growth.

Online Food Delivery Segment to Witness Rapid Growth

What’s Driving this Growth?

The growth in the food service segment is driven by expanding customer base, increasing number of Gen Z consumers, more consumption occasions, and a surge in the number of restaurants. Eating occasions are projected to rise to 90-95 per annum from the current 60-65 per annum.

Rise in Spending and New Dining Experiences

Though India remains value-conscious, the average order spend is expected to increase slightly to ₹230-250 per order. Rohit Kapoor, CEO of Food Marketplace at Swiggy, believes that higher disposable incomes, digitization, improved customer experience, and the desire for new culinary experiences will continue to propel the food services industry forward.

Urban Cities Leading Consumption

Currently, nearly 70% of food services consumption is concentrated in the top 50 cities among upper-middle and high-income segments. However, growth is expected from Tier 2 cities and beyond. By 2030, the market is set to cater to an additional 110 million customers, transforming eating out into a lifestyle choice.

Future Trends in Food Industry

According to Kapoor, factors such as trying out new cuisines, convenience, social media influence, and indulgence will drive the growth of the sector. Online food delivery is also on the rise, expected to reach 20% penetration by 2030.

Exciting Times Ahead for Food Industry!
