Data Sheet: The Global eCommerce Landscape and Marketplace Opportunity
It’s no secret that eCommerce is booming. But by how much? And who are the key players?
Pattern's global eCommerce experts sat down and mapped the global eCommerce opportunity, what marketplaces you should be aware of, and where eCommerce is headed as an industry. Download the PDF of our global data sheet here.
Global eCommerce sales are expected to hit nearly $5 trillion by 2021, and reach up to $7 trillion by 2024. That’s almost double what they are now. Partnering with eCommerce experts like Pattern will pay off in the long run.
It won’t be long before eCommerce is the name of the game. For every 1% increase in online penetration, an estimated 8,500 physical stores will need to close.
More and more people are choosing to buy online—not just in the U.S. and Europe, but around the entire globe.
The number of people using the internet is growing each year. As more people are exposed to the internet, the market opportunity with eCommerce will also grow.
Digital Advertising Revenue
More and more companies are spending money on advertising, and digital ad spend is driving the majority of ad growth.
Population by Region
Understanding market reach is important. Areas of the world like Asia and Africa offer huge untapped markets in the eCommerce space.
Marketplace by Share
The U.S. only has part of the global eCommerce market share, so ignoring other huge markets like Latin America and Asia will hurt long-term eCommerce strategies. A global eCommerce partner like Pattern is familiar with (and selling on) all major marketplaces.
