August - 2016 issue > 20 Most Promising e-Commerce Companies - 2016  


The number of internet users in India which was poised at 354 million in June last year is expected to cross the 500 million mark by the end of this year. This exponential growth of internet penetration in India has been a very strong growth factor for most industry verticals. However, e-Commerce is the one segment which has grown leaps & bounds by unleashing the true potential of the internet. According to a survey by Google, the number of online shoppers in India which was 35 million in 2014 will cross the 100 million mark by the end of this year.

However, consumer behaviors and expectations are evolving with each passing day, and the businesses are forced to come up with new business models in order to survive on the rough tides of this segment, which is primarily driven by pricing, convenience, user-friendliness and quick delivery times. But not all companies have the necessary infrastructure in place to cater to these aspects, thus making them rely on third party solution providers to cater hassle-free and customer centric experiences on their platforms.
