2018 Online Marketplaces Report
Online Marketplaces Gain Momentum Globally
This report highlights how the global leaders—and the merchants selling on them—are accelerating growth.
The proliferation of marketplaces in retail is hard to ignore: The largest marketplaces sold more than $1.5 trillion in 2017 and accounted for nearly half of all global online shopping. And the marketplace industry is growing, recording a more than 30% growth last year—double the growth of overall online retail.
The third edition of Internet Retailer’s Online Marketplaces Report dives into why the industry is growing and how it has become an integral part of e-commerce. The report mines data from the first-ever Internet Retailer Online Marketplaces Databases and analyzes the top 75 marketplaces in the world. This topic is important now more than ever before, as more consumers are shopping on marketplaces and the marketplaces have given merchants more reasons to sell on them.
