Why does Amazon Fresh make sense and how can it add on to Amazon’s core competency
With a simple market sizing exercise, it is clear that online grocery shopping is unlikely to bring in vast bucks for Amazon.
The total grocery shopping is a humongous $600 billion. Let’s correlate grocery to one of its sub segment – beauty and personal products. Both segments share a lot similarities in that they are done largely by females, and there is vast variance in customer preference. Beauty and personal category is among the early movers to the ecommerce business. In 2014 the beauty and personal category in US is valued at $188 billion, whereas only $3.8 billion, or 5.5%, is done online. This percentage should be much lower for grocery category particularly fresh products because of the storage and delivery concerns from the customers side. So it should be reasonable to valuation that 1% of the total $600 billion, $6 billion, will be done online, in the next five years. Since this category is restricted to regions and largely fragmented, assuming that Amazon is able to broaden nationally and capture 10% of the total market, that’s 600 million in revenue, 1% of $61 billion annual revenue Amazon currently has. To obtain such revenue Amazon has to invest heavily in infrastructure and make its own fulfilment quantity and delivering fleet, which will make the margin possibly on par or even lower than its current market place business even though Amazon is charging a premium for fresh products.
