Ecommerce sector scorecard – Thematic Research

Pages: 18 Published: December 31, 2019 Report Code: GDTMT-TR-R240

Competition in ecommerce is increasingly becoming a straight fight between the US and China, with a handful of tech behemoths dominating the market and amassing huge troves of user data. As markets in Western countries become saturated, the ecommerce giants will be rushing to grab market share in the emerging digital economies, with India and Africa as the primary battlegrounds. In 2020 the internet super-monopolies’ plans for expansion might be thwarted by regulatory headwinds in the form of increased scrutiny of their antitrust and data privacy practices. All eyes will be on the European Union’s investigation of Amazon, which could set an important precedent in regulating ecommerce platforms’ dual role as both marketplace and retailer.

However, many of these themes are, by definition, outside of the core competencies of company boardrooms because they typically originate from external industries.

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
