We are just a tap away from ordering groceries and our favorite meals at our doorsteps.
A report by Harvard Business Review states, the on-demand industry is attracting 22.4 million customers annually, who spend $57.6 billion on them. These services, besides taxi booking and food delivery, include grocery, healthcare, home services, and other hyperlocal services, etc.
