year Internet user Penetration

2015 354,114,747 27% 131,105,0527
From where to start
• In India Still the companies are inveigling customers by keeping the price low and as in Alibaba we have
that leverage over others due to low price in china and ability to invest money, we can any day start with
Alibaba in B2C also no company till now have come up with the vision to connect the people especially
the women in tier 2 and tier 3 cities who still play important role in shopping even in today s world so
Alibaba should come up with more user friendly, segment focused platform in order to capture that
what Alibaba can do ?
• Coming up with the app along with the website which should be extremely user friendly and if anyone
wants to order something he or she should get the option to write it on the app like making list or he or
she can upload the list with the jpeg/jpg format then person will get the possible items on the app and
then the procedure is same for delivering because in tier 2 or 3 cities people nowadays have become
more brand conscious.
Why focusing tier 2 and tier 3 cities?
• According to Assocham study the high internet penetration across tier-II and tier-III
cities along with high disposable income shall lead to approx 100 million transactions
on the Internet by 2020. As a result, the luxury consumption is going to increase
manifold in the country. So focusing more will benefit us in long run .
Clearly this target has all the potential
Why pro mobile is better ?
•India has mobile internet user base of 306 million as of December 2015. As per a report
released by Internet and Mobile Association of India (IMAI) and market research firm IMRB
and penetration of mobile internet was 23 % according to the same sources and why
women are also important is being shown with this diagram
Also even in 2012 the picture was that
and clearly the conditioned has
improved a lot ….
If Alibaba wants to start from the very
next day then :-
Ability to invest which will keep the price lower and
Indians are more prone to low prices .
Little late entry as there are already 4-5 big market
players in India.
Companies are already investing huge on advertising
like flipkart 50 cr , Amazon 70 cr and ask me 300 cr so
the companies are trying to capture market through
huge advertisement also there are 200 ecommerce
startups where 60 percent are horizontal and 40
percent are vertical so in order to save their market
share from Alibaba they can expand this budget
Explained in the next slide .
