The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Dropshipping Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the global dropshipping market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 27.6% during 2023-2028. Dropshipping refers to an order fulfillment model that enables retailers and e-commerce businesses to outsource procuring, storing, and shipping goods to a third-party supplier, such as a manufacturer or wholesaler, instead of warehousing inventory. It generally involves signing agreements with drop shippers, online order placement by customers, and product delivery. It offers numerous advantages, such as reduced overhead and starting costs, better scalability and flexibility, and a more comprehensive product portfolio. It aids enterprises in setting up e-commerce stores, increasing their customer base, and allowing expansion into new markets at relatively lower capital. In recent years, dropshipping has gained immense popularity across the globe as it assists in shipping orders timely, tracking inventories, and handling inbound shipments.
Global Dropshipping Market Trends:
Rapid growth in the e-commerce sector due to increasing preferences for online shopping among consumers represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the growing usage of online retail platforms for buying essentials and consumer goods owing to the implementation of mandatory lockdowns and social distancing norms amid the sudden coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak has augmented the product demand. This is further supported by the easy process of ordering and returns, multiple payment methods, and a wide range of product options offered by e-commerce platforms. In addition, there has been a significant shift from conventional distribution methods toward the dropshipping business model among retailers due to its numerous benefits, including lower capital inputs in inventory and logistics. Along with this, the surging penetration of smartphones and the widespread availability of high-speed internet across the globe are other major growth-inducing factors. Furthermore, the leading players are entering into strategic collaborations to automate business processes with higher financial output. In line with this, continual technological advancements, such as the integration of voice-enabled virtual assistants and chatbots with e-commerce websites and apps to streamline dropshipping operations, have propelled market growth. Other factors, including the growing popularity of mobile e-commerce, escalating demand for faster delivery of packages, changing consumer spending patterns, increasing number of e-commerce startups, and rising cross-border e-commerce trade activities, are creating a favorable market outlook.
