India E-commerce Market Trends:

In India, the increasing penetration of the internet and smartphones represents the primary factor driving the market growth. This can be attributed to the expanding working population, affordable data prices offered by telecom companies, and elevating levels of urbanization. Moreover, the sudden coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, coupled with the consequent lockdowns and mobility restrictions, has introduced new shoppers and sellers to the hassle-free experience and convenience of online buying. Besides this, the growing usage of online platforms for buying essential items amid the pandemic and the rising acceptance of digital payments have augmented product demand. Additionally, the Government of India is introducing several favorable initiatives, including Digital India, Make in India, Start-up India, Skill India, and Innovation Fund, to promote the growth of e-commerce in the country. In line with this, the launch of the Paytm payment bank in India with no minimum balance requirement, zero charges on online transactions, and free virtual debit card is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements, such as hyper-local logistics, analytics-driven customer engagement, and digital advertisements, have catalyzed market growth. Other factors, including the advent of private-label, the surging influence of social media on shopping habits, rapid digitization, increasing consumer purchasing power, and impulse buying behavior, are also providing a positive impact on the market growth.
