iiMedia Research（艾媒咨询）数据显示，2019年中国即时配送用户规模有望突破4亿人大关，达到4.21亿人，分钟级即时配送大战进入白热化阶段。随着即时配送服务覆盖商品类型不断丰富，非餐品类即时配送服务需求急速上升。iiMedia Research（艾媒咨询）数据显示，2019上半年偏好日用品、文件资料等非餐品类服务的受访用户占比较2018上半年涨幅均超3%，其中偏好日用品的用户涨幅超4%。但随着即时配送服务覆盖至人们日常生活的多个方面，同质化问题也随之凸显，未来平台应着眼于精细化运营，基于自身优势，为商户、消费者提供差异化的增值服务。
As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the scale of China Immediate Delivery users is expected to break through the 400 million mark in 2019, reaching 421 million people. Meanwhile, the competition among minute-level immediate delivery platforms has entered a white-hot stage. With the continuous enrichment of the types of goods covered by the immediate delivery services, the demand for non-meal immediate delivery services has risen sharply. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the proportion of interviewed users who preferred non-meal services such as daily necessities, documents in the first half of 2019 increased by more than 3% compared with the first half of 2018, and the proportion of those who preferred dialy necessities increased by more than 4%. But as the immediate delivery service covers many aspects of our daily life, the problem of homogeneity it also highlighted. The future platform should focus on fine operation and provide differentiated value-added services for merchants and consumers based on its own advantages.
With the spread of New Retail concept, the immediate delivery service has been rapidly popularized. As it solve the in-city delivery problem which emerge in the traditional delivery services by opening up online-offline sales and establishing the short-distance logistics system, it has become an inevitable trend of commercial development. In 2018, the scale of China Immediate Delivery users continued to grow steadily. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the scale of the users has reached 358 million, and expected to exceed 400 million in 2019. New retail business is undoubtedly an important growth point in the development of Immediate Delivery industry. The results of the survey for services used by immediate delivery users showed that, the proportion of users who had relatively ordered fresh fruits, daily necessities, flowers, documents and etc. are all greater than 20%. As for the new retail services, users who prefer other types of immediate delivery services, such as medicine delivery, increased by 106.1% compared with the one in the first quarter of 2017.
After several years of rapid development in China's take-out market, the take-away industrial chain has gradually improved, and the market has gradually matured. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the scale of China's take-out users increased by 17.4% in 2018 compared with 2017 and reached 358 million people. The scale of the take-out market in 2018 exceeded 240 billion yuan, and its market development has entered a period of steady growth. The “new consumption“ has brought new development opportunities to the take-out industry. In 2018, the take-out quality has been upgraded. In the fourth quarter of 2018, the customer-selling orders more than 40 yuan accounted for 32.9%; the distribution heart of China’s online take-out users is moving to the third-tier and fourth-tier cities. The proportion of users in first-tier cities decreased by 6.0%, and the decline was obvious. The proportion of users in the third-tier and fourth-tier cities increased by 5.8%, which became a new driving force for the growth of the take-out market. The future development trends of take-out industry may be the local differentiation and the extension of take-out service crowd and scene.
According to iiMedia Research data, the current demand of logistics enterprises for smart logistics mainly includes logistics data, logistics cloud and logistics equipment. In 2018, the smart logistics market will exceed 400 billion yuan. It is expected that by 2025, the smart logistics market will exceed trillion yuan. iiMedia Consulting analysts believe that with the development of IoT, AI and other technologies, as well as the higher requirements for logistics in new retail, intelligent manufacturing and other fields, the scale of intelligent logistics market will continue to expand. At the same time, the development of new retail, the upgrading of consumer consumption and the increase of user experience expectations have contributed to the gradual expansion of demand in the real-time distribution industry. It is expected that the number of users in China's distribution industry will reach 421 million in 2019, and there is still potential for continued growth.
With the rapid development of the New Retail Industry and the increasing demand for the speed of distribution, the Immediate Distribution services has become a standard service for the enterprises and the consumers. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the scale of orders in China’s Immediate Distribution Industry has increased to 5.593 billion. At present, the orders in Immediate Distribution Industry are still concentrated in developed cities, 46.0% of the orders are from first-tier cities. But with the further development of the logistics efficiency, the importance of the market in non-first-tier cities will become increasingly prominent in the future.
