2021 Amazon and E-Marketplace Trends and Predictions
Stay on top of the latest e-commerce and marketplace trends.
The past year has been turbulent and unpredictable, to say the least. Not even Amazon was prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing headwinds, which have pushed the boundaries of supply chains and e-commerce, and propelled the retail industry into a stage of unavoidable digital revolution.
Yet, with great change comes even greater opportunity. U.S. e-commerce sales will grow over 32% year over year, with e-marketplaces among the biggest beneficiaries. Amazon and Walmart will grow their market share to 39% and 5.8%, respectively, per eMarketer.
To capitalize on this growth requires a comprehensive understanding of the ever-changing needs, innovations, initiatives within the industry. As a seller or brand within the e-commerce space, staying abreast of these trends and transformations is not an option but an imperative — or otherwise risk getting left behind.
