Global B2C e-commerce turnover is forecast to reach over $2 trillion in 2019.
‘Global e-commerce offers huge potential but to harness it, the whole industry still needs to adapt its services. There is a need to further develop a frictionless international shopping experience that improves the whole process.’
Renaud Marlière, Chief Business Development Officer, Asendia

Infrastructure & Logistics
The global e-commerce market is continuing to grow at an impressive rate. Around the world, infrastructure and logistics are improving and becoming more and more e-commerce friendly.
In terms of the main indices that benchmark international economies (Logistics Performance, Ease of Doing Business, E-Government Development, Inclusive Internet) there is a surprising mix of countries, with no country featuring in the top 5 across all of them.
The report covers six regions: South America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia & Oceania, and North America.
The Asia & Oceania region has the highest e-commerce turnover, while the Africa region has the lowest. For each region, around 10 countries have been analysed in the report, focusing on e-commerce facts and figures, and B2C e-commerce turnover.
You can learn about the wide range of e-commerce statistics among these countries, such as the internet penetration of Tanzania (lowest) and the United Arab Emirates (highest).
