According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Social Commerce Market Report by Business Model (Business to Consumer (B2C), Business to Business (B2B), Consumer to Consumer (C2C)), Device Type (Laptops and PCs, Mobiles, and Others), Product Type (Personal and Beauty Care, Apparels, Accessories, Home Products, Health Supplements, Food and Beverages, and Others), and Region 2023-2028,” the global social commerce market size reached US$ 778 Billion in 2022. Social commerce is the fusion of social media and e-commerce, where online shopping activities are directly influenced or facilitated by social media platforms. Rather than directing shoppers to a website, social commerce allows them to make purchases within the social media environment itself. Features like "Shop Now" buttons, integrated checkout systems, and product recommendations shared within social networks help streamline the buying process. This strategy benefits both businesses and consumers. For businesses, it offers an additional sales channel and a way to leverage social influence for product promotion. For consumers, it provides convenience and enables more informed purchasing decisions through user reviews and recommendations. At present, social commerce is gaining immense traction as a significant aspect of the modern retail landscape across the globe.
Global Social Commerce Market Trends:
The seamless integration of purchasing options within social media platforms makes shopping more convenient, allowing users to buy products without leaving the app, which represents the primary factor driving market growth. This ease of transaction encourages impulse buying and boosts sales conversions. Apart from this, the rising role of user-generated content, including product reviews and recommendations, has catalyzed market growth. Such content enhances trust among potential buyers and influences their purchasing decisions in real time. Additionally, an increasing number of people are buying products endorsed by peers or individuals they follow, making social proof a powerful motivator, thus fueling market growth. Furthermore, sophisticated algorithms ensure that product promotions reach the most relevant audience, amplifying the efficacy of advertising campaigns. In line with this, the broad reach of social media platforms and advanced targeting capabilities that make it easier for businesses to connect with specific consumer demographics are contributing to market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 3,652 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 27.9% during 2023-2028.
