A Roller Coaster that only goes up: Food-Delivery Companies in Asia (III)

As the food delivery industry continues to grow with record high order volumes in different markets every day, it’s like a roller coaster that only goes up. On this roller coaster, the ultimate goal for all the food delivery companies right now is to compete for market share. Asia has grown to be a major battlefield for the biggest food tech companies in the world. 

As 2021 draws to an end, Measurable AI presents the third part of this food delivery industry research in Asia, covering specifically market share and average order value. (Read part I, part II)

Based on Measurable AI‘s very own e-receipts data panel, Foodpanda ranks as the major competitor for the other food delivery companies when competing for market share in the following markets: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore. In Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Malaysia, the food delivery market is a duopoly with Foodpanda competing against only one player.

In Hong Kong, Foodpanda has been leading the game with a slight advantage throughout the year of 2021. With UberEats announcing the quit just last month, the competition between Foodpanda and Deliveroo will only intensify in the following year. From our panel, when UberEats exited Hong Kong, it owned around 3% of the market share. Whoever can take this over in the next year will gain a stronger foothold in the Hong Kong food delivery market.

Our latest score from November is 51% (Foodpanda) over 46% (Deliveroo) in terms of total revenues in USD. 

Taiwan Food Delivery Market Share 2021

In Taiwan, Foodpanda is competing directly against UberEats. UberEats owns a bigger share of the revenue pie; in the past two months, UberEats has maintained a 51% market share over Foodpanda’s 49%. Close game? At the moment yes, but it might be totally different in the next year since Shopee from Singapore and Coupang from Korea have decided to enter the food war in Taiwan as well.
