Spain's Food Delivery Market: An Analytical Overview

Spain's rich culinary diversity makes it an ideal landscape for the growing food delivery industry. As the country that brought the world paella, tapas, and sangria, Spain's cuisine is as varied as its geography. The data presents a global trend where food delivery services are becoming an integral part of daily life. From 2019 to 2022, the online food delivery market in Spain more than doubled its revenue, reaching over €5 billion, showcasing an insatiable appetite for dining at the digital table [1]. With a remarkable surge in revenue in 2023 to €6.6 billion, the online meal and grocery delivery industry's financial trajectory highlights growing demand and a hungry consumer base eager for the convenience of food delivery [2]. This analysis taps into Dashmote's extensive data to provide insights on the dynamics of Food Service Aggregators (FSAs) and the potential that lies within Spain's food delivery sector.

Key Players in Spain’s Market

The Spanish food delivery market has experienced remarkable growth, now featuring over 108.6k DSFs (digital storefronts) across the country. We noticed intense competition primarily among the three major platforms we gathered insights from: Glovo, JustEat, and Uber Eats. Glovo leads with a 41% market share, underscoring its extensive reach. JustEat is a close second with 39%, while Uber Eats holds the third position with a 20% share. 

Just Eat is the fastest growing platform, with over 42.1k digital storefronts (DSFs) and experiencing a significant growth rate in comparison to its competition, 15% growth from Q1 to Q4 of 2023.
