According to an estimate the Indian ecommerce market is set to grow fastest globally over the next 3 years. Recently Morgan Stanley Research in a report said that it has increased its estimate of India’s Ecommerce market in 2020 from $102 billion to $119 billion. This takes their estimate of the total Indian Internet market size from $137 billion to $159 billion including online food aggregation business. With such a huge potential in the online space, the number of online service providers is bound to grow, notwithstanding the existing market players and an integrated shopping experience will mark a paradigm shift in the way things are sold online.
