One Click Retail’s recent Amazon Grocery 2017 Review report identified that Amazon’s U.S. beverage sales surged to 65 percent year-over-year (YoY). The remaining top categories including Snack Foods (53 percent YoY), Candy & Gum (35 percent YoY), and Breakfast Foods (38 percent YoY) prove that non-perishable goods remain on top of Amazon’s grocery sales.
The study conducted by the leading eCommerce data research firm showed that U.S. Amazon online grocery sales went up by 59 percent YoY in the U.S., 56 percent in the UK and 54 percent in Germany. The recent study also shows that shoppers continuously lean towards purchasing non-perishable goods on the eCommerce platform.
“The Amazon and Whole Foods partnership is a perfect match, doubling down on the campaign begun by Amazon Fresh to change consumer perceptions of online grocery sales from ‘non-perishables only’ to high quality, fresh, ‘whole’-some foods,” Nathan Rigby, One Click, VP
Increasing demands for non-perishable goods
Amazon currently owns at least 18 percent of the online grocery market in the U.S. According to One Click Retail’s report, Amazon sold at least $2 billion worth of groceries a year ago, propped by Whole Foods’ 365 Everyday Value label.
According to NASDAQ, Amazon’s procurement of Whole Foods for $13.7 billion a year ago is now making changes in the company overall revenue. Just about a week after One Click Retail released its report, the firm announced that Amazon’s efforts to penetrate the grocery business dramatically boosted its sales. Including today’s revenue, Amazon shares went up by 14 percent since the start of 2018.
