Ecommerce in Retail - Thematic Research

Ecommerce in Retail - Thematic Research
 
Summary

 
Over the last decade, retail has undergone a fundamental change on the back of heightened connectivity, increasing competition, and rising customer expectations. Permanent store closures were already rife in the retail sector before the COVID-19 pandemic due to changing consumer habits and spend shifting online. Many retailers have been quick to re-strategize and restructure their business to find new ways to engage with customers, while others have struggled.
 
Key Highlights
 
- Ecommerce companies face two major challenges. The first is making the industry more sustainable. Companies must tackle waste, make deliveries more energyefficient, and improve working conditions. The second challenge is adapting to new regulations. As EU and US regulators turn on Big Tech, the winners will be those companies that avoid reputational damage by implementing new regulations quickly while remaining profitable.
- Consumers are becoming ever more demanding of the services and products they purchase, and retailers are being placed under greater pressure to provide an experience that is unique for each customer. Personalization and frictionless shopping on ecommerce platforms are becoming increasingly important among consumers, as they demand access to specialized products with a seamless experience and a strong customer service element.
- The global ecommerce market grew from $399 billion in 2010 to $1.6 trillion in 2019, according to GlobalData forecasts. Key to this growth has been the spread of the internet, with the number of users worldwide increasing from 847 million in 2010 to 4 billion in 2019.
- The ecommerce value chain has five discrete layers: customer interface, order management, transaction processing, fulfillment, and after-sales service. These layers are underpinned by data, which provides the backbone for all successful ecommerce operations.
