B2C E-commerce: Market Segmentation

Business to Consumer (B2C) is an online platform that connects business owners with end-users to provide services and products. There are no intermediaries in the B2C structure, thus there is more competition and higher client demands in B2C e-commerce. The operation of this business model is direct: an e-commerce website provides a platform for users to shop in the same way they do in stores, but via an online catalogue, selection of things for purchase, and virtual checkout. There are numerous advantages to B2C e-commerce, including the lack of a physical presence, excellent customer service, business growth, niche marketing, lower costs, and the elimination of third-party clients.

Rapid Urbanisation and Digital Revolution Boosting the Market Growth

The global B2C e-commerce industry is expected to expand due to rapid urbanisation, product diversity, low pricing due to direct interaction between sellers and customers, and the digital revolution. The industry is predicted to grow rapidly over the next few years, owing to rising digital dependency and the convenience of buying on online platforms. It has developed because of a hectic lifestyle and an abundance of possibilities for shopping from the comfort of one's own home. The rise in disposable income, global per capita income, and internet penetration are the factors propelling the growth of the market. The e-commerce business has become more accessible and efficient as a result of rising technological adoption and the widespread availability of smartphones.

Over the projected period, the consumer electronics and clothes and footwear segments are expected to increase at a significant rate. The increase can be due to rising internet usage and customers' growing interest in new products and trends.
