App orders projected to see 17% growthA Grab Food order is organised. Varuth HirunyathebKasikorn Research Center (K-Research) projects 17% growth for online food delivery through apps this year as the coronavirus outbreak has discouraged people from visiting restaurants. "The coronavirus pandemic has stimulated growth in online food delivery. In the first half of this year, the food delivery business is seeing a surge, mainly because of the outbreak, with competition rife among delivery apps. "The rise in food delivery revenues is not sufficient to offset lower restaurant revenues," he said.
