Despite challenging economic conditions, investors continue to pump funding into B2B marketplace companies—and for good reason. Sales on B2B marketplaces shot up 131% to $56.5 billion in 2021, and they are projected to increase at a similar pace to $130 billion in 2022.
Top executives in the B2B industry are seeing the shift to marketplaces and embracing it. Tyler Ellison, CEO of ChemDirect, says “Millennials and Generation Z employees are moving into procurement management roles, and they are not checking their Amazon-like expectations at the door. They want the same user experience on the job they are accustomed to at home.”
The 2022 B2B Marketplaces: Growth and Trends explores how marketplaces are shaping the future of B2B digital commerce. This report includes 10 data-packed charts and graphs, real-life case studies on the growth and expansion of ShopConnect and Liquidity Services.
