Another major factor propelling demand for foodtech in India is the growing youth population, primarily in urban regions of the country. The country has a large base of young consumers who form majority of the workforce and due to time constraints barely get time for cooking. In India, the concept of ordering food online is gaining popularity due to various convenience provided by the companies in terms of delivering food at the doorstep of the customer, option of alternate payment methods, and continuous announcement of attractive cashbacks/ discounts offers.

On the basis of operation type, the India foodtech market has been segmented into two categories, namely, restaurant based and food aggregators. In 2015, restaurant based dominated the overall market, and is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the next five years. However, in terms of growth, the other segment i.e. food aggregators segment is expected to outpace restaurant based segment over the next five years. Food aggregators acts as a mediator between customers and restaurants, and provides the option of choosing from different cuisines from multiple restaurant and food outlets registered with them.

"Yum Foods, Jubilant Foodworks, Zoamto, and McDonald's are the leading players in India foodtech market. These players are anticipated to maintain their dominance in the market through 2021, predominantly on account of their future expansion plans.
