Australians chill at the Uber Eats: billions of dollars growth in food handling activity FINALLY slows down
- The online market for takeaway meals is flattening in Australia, research shows
- The market grew by three percent in March, but none in April or February
- Fine dining owners say that customers want experiences about the convenience
The online takeaway food market is & # 39; flattened & # 39 ;, because higher-end restaurants claim that customers are more interested in the experience than convenience.
Morgan Stanley research has shown that the market grew only four percent in May, after just three percent growth in March.
This is far removed from 2016 when the sector grew 56 percent in a month.
Scott Pickett, who owns high-end restaurants in Melbourne, told Fairfax the boom of companies such as Deliveroo and Uber Eats had not had much impact on his business and was & # 39; flattened & # 39 ;.

He said the rush to outsourced delivery programs was similar to the rush to large televisions, which were briefly considered threatening films.
But Mr. Picket said the factor that kept cinema alive would be the same to save good food – the experience.
& # 39; Somehow the movies are still there and they're going strong because people want to go to the movies & he said. & # 39; They want to be treated.
& # 39; There are great parallels, you can sit on your couch and watch a movie or sit on the couch and eat a meal from a box. & # 39;
While high end dining options are safe for a rush of delivery riders, low end locations are flooded with them.

Photos taken in Sydney at lunchtime on Saturday show cyclists with insulated branded food bags on their backs, waiting at popular locations such as McDonalds for orders to start streaming.
A recent study by Uber Eats showed that six out of ten Australians ordering via a delivery app was a & # 39; normal thing to do these days & # 39; found.
And a report produced by Deloitte for Uber Eats, the online food care industry in Australia estimates $ 1.3 billion in 2019 – the fourth largest market in the Asia Pacific region.
A Uber spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia last week that more young people are using delivery apps than ever before because they are becoming more & # 39; timeless & # 39; to be.
Daily Mail Australia has approached Uber for comment.
