Global outlook of the delivery and takeaway food market
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the global delivery and takeaway food market will exceed USD 100 billion between 2016 and 2020. There is growing preference for online shopping among consumers owing to their hectic schedules and busy lifestyles. The increased internet penetration, quick access to smartphones, and simplified e-banking systems have resulted in more purchases through the online channels. This has propelled several food chains to shift towards online portals to enhance online ordering by offering improved selection, convenience, transparency, and security to the customers. Most of the orders received by these food portals are through mobile phones as these provide consumers a secure and easy way to pay and order food from local takeaway restaurants. Consumers can also track their order through their smartphones through real-time order tracking. With the continuous growth in the online orders, the role of social media in the purchase decisions of consumers has increased significantly. Takeaway restaurants and food delivery portals are using social media platforms to connect with customers to obtain their experiences and feedback.
Consumers are opting for nutritious food restaurants over fast food while ordering online or for takeaway. They are willing to pay more for the healthy, fresh, and low-calorie food served at these restaurants. Such requirements have propelled several quick service restaurants (QSRs) to introduce nutritious and healthy meals in their fast food menus. They are offering half or full size salads containing fruits and fresh
Overview of the foodservice market in the US
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the foodservice market in the US to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% by 2020.. Due to factors like changing consumer preferences, new lifestyle choices, and demographic shifts, the foodservice sector will constantly evolve during the forecast period. Moreover, due to the strengthening of the economy in the US, more people will be employed. This increase in the employment rate will augment the populace’s disposable income, which in turn will impel their spending on food products. According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the food-away-from-home (FAFH) category amounted to 42% of the total household expenditure in 2012.
The hectic and busy work schedules of the populace in this region are responsible for the growing demand for drive-thru or on-the-go food products. Moreover, factors such as the availability of hygienic food products for students and working population, and their rising need to eat in cafeterias, canteens, and restaurants will stimulate the prospects for growth in the foodservice market in the US during the forecast period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors
Market analysis of QSR
A quick service restaurant (QSR) originated in the US in the 1920s and serves swiftly prepared fast food that includes both sweet and savory dishes. Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global QSR market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The increased demand for convenient or on-the-go products is the driving factor for the growth of this market. APAC is predicted to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.
The growing health awareness is expected to pose challenges for the growth of the QSR market. As most of the products are processed fast foods, it is high in fat resulting in high BMI and weight gain. Many stringent government regulation and documentaries such as 'Super-Size Me' have educated the consumers on the negative impacts of fast food consumption. For instance, during 2010, Puerto Rico’s government passed a law to ban the sale of fast food from vending machines in all the public schools. This step was taken as an attempt to reduce the obesity rate among the children.
