Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wc5t3n/asiapacific_b2c) has announced the addition of the "Asia-Pacific B2C E-Commerce Market 2014" report to their offering.
Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region on the global B2C E-Commerce market. Between 2013 and 2018 it is forecasted to grow by over 20% annually and surpass North America to become the number one region worldwide in terms of B2C E-Commerce sales. The large population base coupled with increasing Internet connectivity and disposable incomes set the stage for this rapid growth.
The booming Asia - Pacific market is a field of activity for both regional and global players. The three largest companies based in the region are China-based Alibaba and JD.com and Japan's Rakuten. While Alibaba and JD.com shine on the global stage through IPO offerings, Rakuten pursues customers around the globe by launching marketplaces beyond the home region. Among the global brands with the large shares in the region are Amazon, eBay and Yahoo.
China is the largest online shopping market in the Asia-Pacific region and second largest worldwide. The number of online shoppers, at over 300 million in 2013 continues to grow as Internet penetration continues. The hottest trends on the booming E-Commerce market in China are the development of mobile and social channels for online shopping, growing popularity of group-buying websites and the rise in purchases of luxury goods online.
The number two market in Asia-Pacific and number three worldwide in terms of online retail sales is Japan. Though the market is one of the most advanced, further growth of close to 10% is still expected, primarily from development of new channels, such as M-Commerce, whose share on total retail has reached double-digit figures.
