An increase in smartphone users has given a boost to Food and Beverage (F&B) e-commerce sales worldwide. Smartphone users are the primary online shoppers for the F&B industry and with the increasing number of them, there is a potential increase in online shopping for food and beverages. As per an article published by k-commerce, the world smartphone users reached 3.2 billion in 2019 and are expected to grow by 600 million within the next two years and 200 million of these are expected from India and China alone. General Mills, a US-based grocery store chain, is already seeing 10% of their sales occurring online, and by 2022, online grocery shopping is expected to be a $100 billion business. Hence increase in smartphone users and internet penetration is driving growth in F&B e-commerce.
With an increase in technology and changing human interaction with any product or service, online shopping and web surfing for Food & Beverage (F&B) products or services is diurnal. This is positively effecting the F&B e-commerce, in 2019, it's estimated there are 1.92 billion digital buyers, and e-commerce sales account for 14.1% of retail purchases worldwide and is expected to rise to 22% in 2023. 80% of consumers prefer detailed information about purchases and considered this crucial to make buying decisions.

Supplier and producers cost will be the key restraint for the food and beverage e-commerce market. These include the cost incurred for order fulfillment, delivery cost, adjusting business resources to dynamic market demand and last-mile connectivity. Besides, there are costs of cardboard boxes for packaging, gas, mileage and driver time to factor in. A report from Capgemini in 2019 shows that retailers' net profit could fall by up to 26% in the next three years, if they don't radically improve last-mile solutions, despite increased online grocery sales. Since the majority of products have a very limited shelf life, the supply chain has to have no gaps, be robust and have zero resource wastage, to achieve profitable margins. Therefore the costs incurred by the supplier side may restrain the growth of the food and beverage market.
