The strengths of the company that have had effect on the Zomato share price are:
  1. First Service Providers : Being one of the first companies in this industry in India, Zomato received a lot of first mover’s advantage, which allowed it to quickly establish its foothold in the market.
  2. Evergreen nature of the Restaurant Industry: The company’s decision to build itself in an evergreen industry allows it to stay strong even during tough times.
  3. User-friendly Interface: Having won several awards for its design and user-friendliness, Zomato makes it easy and fast for all customers to use its app.
  4. Well Connected: The company’s large network and database allow it to develop quickly based on the feedback of both consumers and restaurants.
  5. Strong funding: Given the brand’s global expansion over the years and simple growth plan, it received excellent funding and backup from different organisations.
  6. Brilliant Marketing Strategy: Taking its marketing strategy online as well as offline. Zomato has become well known for its quirky and humorous ads, notifications, and trends.

CSR and Sustainability

Through the company’s CSR projects and policies, Zomato Ltd aims to focus on several social causes including: 
  • Eradicating hunger, malnutrition, and poverty while promoting health care through contributions to schemes such as the Swach Bharat Kosh that was set up by the Central government.
  • Promoting education, including special education, for children, women, elderly and the differently abled.
  • Empowering women and promoting gender equality.
  • Ensuring the sustainability of the environment and maintaining a delicate ecological balance.
  The brand has upheld their focus through several activities, such as contribution to the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund (PMNRF) for socio economic development, campaigns in collaboration with Child Rights and You (CRY), and acquiring the non-profit organisation ‘Feeding India’.


In the past, Zomato has only had criticism over security issues, inefficient expansion and comparison with competition. Over the last decade, the company app has been hacked many times and with data that scores over 17 million users was put at risk.  The app, now established in over 24 countries, has huge funding but is criticised of not using it well and letting competitors pave their way. As a matter of fact, the competition is increasing in this sector with many apps like swiggy catching up very fast.

Covid-19 Impact

Though the Covid 19 pandemic had an adverse effect on the restaurant industry due to severe lockdowns, it allowed for an acceleration of adoption of online food delivery services by wider audiences. The brand announced a growth in the revenue in FY20, rising from Rs 466 crore in FY18 to Rs 2,604 crore, signifying an approximate 5.5X growth over the three-year period. The company’s efforts towards providing quick and healthy meals for those infected by the virus and/or quarantined without any access to home cooked meals also contributed to the people’s outlook of the brand and acceptance of its services.

Future Prospects

Though the food giant is incurring net losses at the moment due to heavy marketing investments and discounts, the brand is expected to earn $110 billion by the year 2025. Zomato’s future growth and profitability is dependent on two main features, order volumes and contribution margin per order. If the company reaches an annual order volume of 1 billion (2.5x FY20 levels) and a contribution margin of around ₹21 per order, then it is expected to turn profitable by 2025.

Did You Know

The Zomato logo simply reads out the company’s name and is indicative of their love for good food. The brand’s mission is to ensure that ‘nobody has a bad meal’. The brand generated over 95% of its revenues through commercial advertising in 2003 and has since grown to take the 77th position in India’s top 100 startups.

Initial Public Offering

With the goal of raising capital from the public, Zomato issued its IPO on July 23, 2021 and was listed at both BSE and NSE. The issue size was Rs. 9,375 crore, which consisted of a fresh issue component as well as an offer for sale. The Zomato share price was issued at Rs. 76 per share.

Equity Shares

The shares of food app, Zomato have been under a lot of pressure after their IPO ended. Ever since, the Zomato stock price has dropped by 18%, taking it down to Rs. 40. Some investors have even advised others to not invest in this stock, especially in the long-run. While the short run investors could profit as the price may rise to Rs. 50 - 55, generating almost 20% in returns. But even so, there are better options available and at the moment the scope of loss is very high.
