We analyzed download trends for the top four most popular grocery delivery apps in India: Swiggy, Zepto, Dunzo, and bigbasket.
A few weeks ago, we wrote about declining downloads for fast grocery apps in the United States. We noted that, as global markets have become less stable, so too have start-ups like JOKR, Gopuff, getir, and Gorillas. Businesses that recently raised upwards of $5.5 Billion from venture capitalists are now engaging in serious cost-cutting measures, including layoffs, warehouse closures, etc.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom. In India, for example, grocery delivery apps appear to be thriving. Some have even managed to generate upwards of one million downloads per month in the subcontinent alone.
So, with this in mind, we decided to take a look at the most popular mobile grocery delivery offerings in India. We analyzed the performance of Swiggy Food & Grocery Delivery, Zepto: 10-Min Grocery Delivery, Dunzo: Grocery Shopping & More, and bigbasket: Grocery Shopping. Here’s what we found.

In our article outlining the struggles of U.S. grocery delivery apps, we noted that what appeared to be happening was less about market uncertainty and more about good old fashioned consolidation. Fast grocery apps are not only incredibly convenient for consumers, they’re also an easy business model to replicate. So, unsurprisingly, the U.S. market had become pretty crowded and was due for realignment.
By contrast, the Indian market is currently dominated by Swiggy, Zepto, Dunzo, and bigbasket; but, there are plenty of downloads to go around. This is an enticing notion for entrepreneurs since it indicates there’s a good opportunity to cut off a piece of the pie. So, keep an eye on this space, one or two new contenders could shake things up in a big way.
