In the last year though, the internet giant is finding it hard to maintain its growth rate in France – down to 14% from 44% a year ago. This is due to the dynamism of its competitors, especially Carrefour and Intermarché, who have opened many new pick-up points, 232 and 85 respectively, in the last year. Additionally, the development of pedestrian pick-up points in bigger urban areas is making it harder for Amazon to grow.

Stéphane Roger, global shopper and retail director at Worldpanel Division, Kantar, comments: “We predict that by 2025, online grocery sales will double, meaning that 10% of global FMCG sales will happen online. The continued demand for convenience in urban areas, the integration between online and offline, the creation of new direct-to-consumer options and more technology will all help reach new targets beyond the current profile of affluent families with children.”
