Retail and E-Commerce

E-commerce has transformed the way retail and distribution industries work

The retail industry in India contributes over 10% to India's GDP and employs around 8% of the workforce (35+ million). The future of retail indicates the creation of 25 million new jobs by 2030. The sector is rapidly expanding, not only in major cities but also in smaller ones, driven by factors like robust economic growth, changing demographics, increased disposable income, urbanization, and evolving consumer preferences, boosting the organized retail market in the country.

Simultaneously, India's consumer digital economy is on a trajectory to reach a staggering US$ 1 trillion by 2030, escalating from its 2020 figure of US$ 537.5 billion. This remarkable growth is propelled by the widespread adoption of e-commerce platforms in India, marking a significant shift in consumer behavior.

Improved Online Infrastructure and Internet Connectivity Begets a Digitally Empowered Country

E-commerce has transformed the way retail and distribution industries work. Much of this growth is facilitated by an increase in internet and smartphone penetration across the country. Most research estimates that India is likely to cross 650 million internet users by 2023. This is further fortified by government campaigns such as the Digital India, an initiative by the government to make the country digitally empowered.
