eCommerce- The next 5 years, a BOOM Period
Developing Countries Powering the BoomWhile a large number of people living in the developed countries have been shopping online for some time now, the numbers have started stagnating now for these countries. The reason being, developing nations are supposedly taking over. eCommerce is currently booming majorly because of the exponential rise in the number of online stores in developing countries. The developing countries which are leading from the front are China, India, Brazil, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, Russia and Mexico (according to an intensive survey by Credit Suisse). According to the Credit Suisse survey, the online retail sales in these countries can reach up to $3.5 trillion and impact multiple sectors, such as retail, finance, security and technology. China has the maximum number of online shoppers, closely followed by India. These two countries are literally taking online shopping to the next level. In both these nations, the gen next has been found to be shopping online. In China, most of the online shoppers are below the age of 30 years. The situation is somewhat the same in India as well.
Rapid Rise of Internet AccessOne of the primary reasons why eCommerce is likely to grow exponentially in the next five years is because of the rapid access to the Internet. Currently there are approximately 1 billion Internet users in the developing countries itself, specifically China and India. Moreover, the fact that Internet can be accessed easily on smartphones has further popularized online shopping. In India, two-thirds of Internet users’ access online shopping apps through their smartphones while in China, nearly three-fifths have Internet access through smartphones.
Easy AvailabilityThe boom of eCommerce is inevitable because of the innumerable options available in front of the essentially young consumers. The urban population in the above mentioned developing countries is not only shopping gadgets and books online, but also clothes, footwear, and jewelry.
