Market Research Report : Indian e-tailers market in India 2012


Published on

For the complete report, get in touch with us at : info@netscribes.com

Online shopping has caught the fancy of the common people in a phenomenal way in recent years. As the significant changes in modern lifestyles are leading people to become increasingly hard pressed for time, they are constantly on the lookout for quicker alternatives for practically every kind of activity and shopping online has earmarked a new trend in this time-saving effort. Indian retail has been quick to capitalize on this new concept, thereby heralding a new era of e-tailing. Although e-commerce has been prominent in the online domain for quite some time now, yet it is different from e-tailing in the sense that while the former includes sale of goods and services, the latter pertains to only goods. Despite certain prevalent inhibitions regarding the prospects of e-tailing in the country, this form of shopping has suddenly received a new lease of life and is well on its way towards further growth due to the increasing internet and credit card penetration and general tendency among consumers to explore new avenues of shopping.

The report begins with an introduction of the retail market in India primarily because e-tailing is an online variant of retailing. This is followed by the introduction of the parent industry for e-tailing which is the e-commerce sector. A brief introduction is provided on the e-commerce sector along with the market size and growth as well as market segmentation. The focus then shifts to e-tailing deliberating on the concept, followed by its evolution and a trade-off between physical retailing and e-tailing, elaborating on the advantages associated with the online variant. The report then focuses on the e-tailing market in India detailing about its market size and growth. A brief snapshot of the sector is also provided with this overview that is immediately followed by a segmentation of the e-tailing market. The section concludes with a value chain analysis of the sector. The report then proceeds to give a briefing about the e-tailing formats that are present in the sector. A section on the benefits associated with e-tailing comes next that precedes the 4P’s of marketing for the sector and the key success factors. The following section speaks about the product categories that find maximum off-take in this sector.

Brief descriptions of the drivers that help the sector to prosper include increase in internet users, boost from social media, changing demographics, increase of internet-enabled computing devices, soaring real estate costs and the need to save time. A considerable proportion of the growth of the sector depends on the growth of the internet user base. As internet users increase with the passage of time, activities such as e-tailing that depend on net connectivity also derive their growth from the same. Social media has helped the sector to grow in the sense that it acts as an effective marketing vehicle
