What is INS Ecosystem?
The grocery market, one of the largest consumer markets in the world, is forecast to reach $8.5 trillion by 2020. It is reaching a digital tipping point, with much of its growth to come from online. Online grocery, being the target segment for INS, is expected to grow from $98 billion in 2015 to $290 billion in 2020, according to IDG estimates.
Despite the tremendous growth, the grocery market has two large interrelated problems – abuse by grocery retailers and ineffective trade promotions.
The grocery market dominated by retailers. Retail chains capture a very high share of grocery revenue and have a huge influence over manufacturers, causing deep impact on consumers worldwide. Retailers dictate what food is grown and how it is processed, packaged, priced and promoted. As an example, in the UK, four retailers serve as a slim conduit for 7,000 manufactures to sell their products to 25 million households , which demonstrates how the 1 existence of retailer abuse in the grocery industry has not only been allowed to develop but also thrived.
