Malaysia Online Fresh Grocer: E-Farm
Before the pandemic, e-grocery was a niche sector. In the past, we would just stroll to the closest shop if we needed a carton of eggs. The market is seeing a dramatic change in consumer habits; loyalty and regularity rates have considerably increased, while average cart size has consistently risen.
This is due to the major transition from offline to online, which will be here to stay. E-commerce is quickly expanding throughout Asia, notably in Southeast Asia. “In fact, 44% are trying new online stores this year. While a majority shopped online for electronics, clothing and apparel, and cosmetics pre-Covid-19, the shopping category that saw a marked increase is grocery.”
This trend can be linked to younger populations in metropolitan areas with higher earnings and spending. As a result, have fuelled this wide adoption of online grocery shopping over the last year. The prolonged lockdowns have also substantially increased the general popularity of online grocery services.
“Euromonitor International shows that the value of Malaysian grocery retailers was estimated at RM71.08 billion in 2020 and is projected to jump 30% to RM91.79 billion in 2025. It is expected to expand to RM74.74 billion this year.”
