Trends In India’s eCommerce Market
by Zia daniell Wigder and Manish Bahl, August 13, 2012
eCommerce in india is Growing Quickly
The eCommerce market in India is smaller than in other markets that Forrester
forecasts in Asia, but it is growing the fastest. Retailers have a sizeable opportunity
as the online population starts to spend more and buy more frequently online.
Today’s online shopper in india has inﬂated expectations
Similar to retailers in most emerging eCommerce markets, retailers in India are
doing whatever is necessary to drive consumers to shop online. Online shoppers
expect to see good deals online accompanied by free or very low-cost shipping.
Localization is Crucial
To be successful online in India, eBusiness professionals must understand local
eCommerce trends. Two key areas that companies must focus on in all markets -localized payment and fulfillment options -- are particularly essential in India.
