Over the next five years, China will grow at a 31% compound annual growth rate and see its online grocery market share increase from 3.8 to 11.2%. This means the Chinese online grocery market will grow by the same size as the entire combined market of all ten countries this year.

Germany, ranked number eight on the list, currently has an online grocery market that’s worth 1.1 billion euros, but over the next five years, a CAGR of 23.3% should lead to a market that’s worth over 3.3 billion euros. Currently, Germany doesn’t have a very significant online grocery channel share (0.5%), but it’s predicted to increase to 1.2%.
Number last on the list is Spain, which now has an online grocery market valued at 790 million euros. This should grow to 1.8 billion euros within five years due to a 17.9% compound annual growth rate. The online share is now at 0.7%, but according to IGD, it will grow to 1.4% by 2023.
