Singaporeans most likely to eat takeaway food several times a week: YouGov

From the 22 markets in YouGov’s study, Taiwan and Thailand are the markets where people are most likely to buy takeaway food more than once a day.

Singaporeans are the most likely to eat takeaway food several times a week, according to new data from YouGov.

Specifically, 36% of consumers in the Lion City buy takeaway food ‘several times per week’ compared to 17% average across all global consumers in the market research company’s Global Profiles tool.

Singapore is followed by Taiwan (33%), Hong Kong (33%), Indonesia (30%), Thailand (29%) and Vietnam (28%). Japan, meanwhile, is the only Asian market where a third of consumers say they order takeaway less often than once a month (30%), with another 20% saying they never buy takeaway. 

From the 22 markets in YouGov’s study, Taiwan (10%) and Thailand (9%) are the markets where people are most likely to buy takeaway food more than once a day.

Data also suggested that ordering takeaway several times a week is also a popular option among consumers in the MENA region. Saudi Arabia (24%) and UAE (23%) register nearly a quarter of consumers, whilst Egypt has slightly less than two in ten consumers (17%) ordering takeaway multiple times a week. A similar number of Egyptians (18%) are also more likely to order-in several times a month.
