The projections of user penetration for Platform-to-Consumer in the coming four years will more than double from 6.5% to 16.1%. However, the Restaurant-to-Consumer user penetration will still lead at 19.4% in 2024 from 14.6% in 2020. This data however, is based on studies made before the Corona Pandemic. 

This Corona Pandemic will push society as a whole, to a tipping point of a mass food delivery lifestyle adoption. Millions of Malaysians, for the very first time, are placed under lock down with little options for dining besides their possible limited culinary repertoire.

“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behaviour crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.”
