November 8, 2022

Throughout the pandemic and beyond, food delivery services have become increasingly popular. More and more people prefer using a mobile app to connect with restaurants for their food. U.S. residents predominantly rely on DoorDash for meal deliveries.

This article will review DoorDash revenue and statistics like the number of users and drivers. We'll also discuss why Buckle is the right choice for DoorDash car insurance.

Essential DoorDash Statistics

Here are DoorDash's statistics in a nutshell:  

  • 2021 annual revenue: $4.9 billion
  • Q2 2022 revenue: $1.6 billion
  • Number of drivers: 1 million
  • Active users: 25 million
  • 2021 number of orders: 1.4 billion

Online Food Delivery Market Size

Before diving into DoorDash revenue figures, it would be helpful to look at the online food delivery market in general. The global industry was estimated at $189.7 billion in 2021, compared to $85.8 billion for the global ridesharing market. The worldwide online food delivery market is expected to grow by a compound annual growth rate of 10.8% through 2028.

What Is Door Dash's Revenue?

The company has seen revenue grow over several quarters. For the second quarter of 2022, DoorDash revenue was $1.6 billion, up 33% from $1.2 billion in the same quarter of 2021.  

DoorDash annual revenue for 2021 was $4.9 billion, up 70% from 2020's revenue of $2.9 billion.  

While you can see DoorDash growth through its revenue figures, DoorDash profits are a different story. The company has yet to turn an annual profit and is not expected to reach profitability this year. It reported a net loss of $468 million in 2021, up slightly from $461 million in 2020.  

What Is DoorDash's Market Share?

In 2021, DoorDash commanded a 57% market share of the U.S. food delivery market, more than double the 26% market share of Uber Eats, its next closest competitor. Grubhub, which dominated the industry in 2016, had a market share of 16%.  

DoorDash has more than a 50% share of the market in these U.S. cities:

  • San Francisco
  • Houston
  • Dallas-Fort Worth
  • Philadelphia
  • Phoenix

How Many DoorDash Drivers Are There?

There are more than 1 million DoorDash couriers, also known as "Dashers." The company operates in 4,000 cities in 27 countries, up from just 21 cities in 2015.

DoorDash partnered with 390,000 restaurants in 2021, a 15% increase from 340,000 in 2020.

How Many People Use DoorDash?

A list of DoorDash stats wouldn't be complete without the number of DoorDash users. In 2021, the company had 25 million active users, up 25% from 20 million active users in 2020. The 2021 figure includes 5 million DoorPass subscribers, who are eligible for free delivery for orders over a certain amount.  

The company reported delivering 1.4 billion orders in 2021, with a gross order value of $41.9 billion. The number of orders and the gross order value have continued to grow over the past year.
