Uber Eats Markets & Demographics

So Uber Eats’ bookings are on the rise, and people order all sorts of things there. But who is using it, why, and where?

In this section, we’ll take a look at where Uber Eats is available around the world, its users, and the reasons why people love it.

Total Number of Users

As of 2022, Uber Eats had over 80 million users, and as observed, it’s the second-most downloaded food delivery app worldwide after Zomato.

However, it’s hard to estimate how many monthly active users the platform has because Uber doesn’t segment its Monthly Active User (MAU) metrics, including both rides and delivery in its MAU reports.

Despite this, the company’s annual report for 2022 states that the number of Uber Eats monthly active consumers grew 2% year-on-year. And as of Q2 2023, Uber had 137 million MAUs across all its platforms.

Uber Eats Presence by Region

As of 2023, Uber Eats is present in 29 countries.

In EMEA, it’s available in South Africa, Kenya, the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, and Switzerland.

As for North and Central America, Uber Eats is available to residents of the US, Canada, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Panama, Mexico, and Guatemala. In South America, it’s available in Chile and Ecuador, having withdrawn from Brazil in 2022.

And in APAC, Uber Eats is present in Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Japan.

The food delivery market has been growing significantly, assisted by the impact of COVID-19 restrictions, which had an unprecedented impact on consumer behavior. In fact, the US food delivery market, comprised of grocery and meal delivery, is expected to reach $473.6 billion by 2027.

Given Uber Eats’ increasing prevalence in the food delivery market, we expect that it’ll continue being one of its largest players. We’ll now take a look at its market share and revenue over the years.

Total Revenue Over the Years


Like this infographic? Feel free to use it on your website or blog, but please remember to give us credit by linking back to techreport.com/statistics/uber-eats-statistics in your post.

As of the end of 2022, the revenue of Uber’s delivery segment, represented by Uber Eats, grew 30% relative to the end of 2021. Total Uber Eats revenue in 2022 was $10.9 billion, compared to $8.36 billion in 2021.

Revenue in Uber’s delivery segment has been growing steadily since 2021, with the exception of Q2 2023. Uber Eats’ revenue tends to peak in the last quarter of every year. Seasonal fluctuations can explain these peaks as people order more food around the holiday season.

Market Share by Region

Although Uber is a huge company, it’s not dominant in the food delivery market. For example, its market share in the US is 23%, with DoorDash having the largest slice of the pie with 65%.

The situation in the UK is similar, with JustEat dominating the food delivery market with a 45% share and Uber Eats having a 27% share.

In Germany, Uber Eats’ market share is only 9%, thanks to the prevalence of local players like Lieferando, which has a 77% share. However, the situation is different in France, where Uber Eats dominates the market with a 67% share.

Valuation & Funding

It’s hard to estimate the value of Uber Eats as a standalone organization, as it’s part of Uber. However, Chef’s Stage estimates it to be worth $20 billion.

According to Crunchbase, Uber Eats hasn’t received any direct funding to date – other than the funding received by its parent company – but it acquired two companies in 2018 – Ando and orderTalks.

Uber Eats Partner Statistics

Uber Eats works with thousands of partners around the world, helping them reach new customers and cater to their evolving needs.

In this section, we’ll take a look at the number of partners Uber Eats works with and the company’s impact on them.

According to Uber Eats’ research into its UK impact during the pandemic, the app made it possible for over 40% of British restaurants to stay in business during COVID-19.

As they couldn’t serve customers on their premises due to the lockdowns imposed by the UK government, they had to expand to delivery to stay in business – and that’s where Uber Eats came in.

Uber Eats also brought new customers to 75% of UK restaurants and more orders from existing patrons to 38% of restaurants. It essentially created a new customer base for the UK hospitality sector – 58% of Uber Eats UK customers tried new restaurantsfor the first time in 2020 via the delivery app.

The Uber Eats customer base is only expected to grow, with the forecast additional revenue to restaurants predicted to reach over £520 million by 2025.

Uber Eats Controversies

Uber has had some issues and controversies in the past in relation to its business operations. Uber Eats isn’t free of such controversies, either, and we’ll take a closer look at them now.

Treatment of Drivers

Uber Eats delivery statistics

Many Uber Eats drivers have complained about how the company treats them, even going as far as to launch a lawsuit. The complaints related to being treated as “numbers, not humans” and the avoidance of payment of benefits resulting from being treated as contractors rather than workers or employees.

This issue has led to many legal disputes around the world, and the courts have tended to reject Uber’s position that its drivers are contractors.

Impact on Hospitality

Despite the positive impact of Uber Eats on the hospitality industry, this is not without controversies, either. The hefty fees charged by Uber Eats cut into restaurant profits.

The commission fees, often ranging from 15% to 30% of each order, have led some restaurants to raise menu prices, negatively impacting customer satisfaction.

What’s the Future of Uber Eats?

Uber Eats was born out of a growing desire for convenience amid technological advancements. The pandemic only accelerated these trends, propelling the company’s take-up and development. We believe it’s safe to say that the future of Uber Eats will involve further advancements and more competition.

As demand for food delivery continues to rise, Uber Eats will likely focus on enhancing UX, improving delivery efficiency, and expanding to new markets. To address the controversies it has faced, Uber Eats may have to work on better driver compensation and safety measures.

Finally, with the increasing presence of other food delivery services, Uber Eats will need to innovate and differentiate itself to maintain its position as a leading player in the competitive food delivery sector.
