Top Players in the Global E-Commerce Industry

The global e-commerce market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Private-label and direct-to-consumer (D2C) business models have enabled leading market players to collect and utilize consumer data and provide personalized products as well as experiences to consumers. Moreover, the improving internet connectivity, especially in developing countries of Central Asia, is offering lucrative growth opportunities to these players. Besides this, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and lockdown restrictions imposed by governing agencies of numerous countries have resulted in temporary closures of retail outlets. This has further led to an increase in the number of business-to-business (B2B) companies that shifted towards e-commerce platforms to expand their market reach. On account of these factors, IMARC group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 16% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
