Depends if you mean the entire process or specifically just the download.

The first part of the process is to export (clicking the export button) to a GEDCOM - the export(ing) process has had its share of problems over the years particularly with large trees - as the explanatory note says it can take a long time to export the tree and there have been a number of reports of "hung" exports never completing eventually requiring the user to contact support.

The second part of the process is the actual download to your pc (the export button changes to download) - pretty much dependent on your internet connection speed. Given that tree export doesn't include any media the actual download normally shouldn't take all that long even for relatively large trees.
