According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "United States Online Grocery Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the United States online grocery market is currently witnessing robust growth. Online grocery stores are e-commerce websites and mobile applications that aid customers in ordering fresh produce, packaged food and dairy products, along with other necessary household items, via the internet. These platforms enable users to schedule delivery of the required items directly from local stores and third-party e-retailing organizations, thereby reducing the additional costs. They also provide flexible payment options to their customers and allow them to select particular delivery slots as per their convenience. Apart from this, they also offer easy return, refund and exchange policies, due to which they are gaining widespread prominence among the masses.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
