The fastest growing consumer trend in the world today is shopping online. Take advantage of this global movement and launch an E-Commerce platform to trade products and market your brand.
With more than 8.5 million residents or 91.9% of the population accessing the Internet, E-Commerce is the fastest growing business sector in the United Arab Emirates. Globally, more than 80% of Internet users made a purchase online in the last 12 months.
In fact, there has been a substantial buyer shift from traditional bricks and mortar retail outlets to online shopping. For instance, Amazon’s E-Commerce revenue rose 15.8% in the last 12 months, reflecting over $82.7 billion in sales. Conversely, Wal-Mart experienced a similar revenue record and only posted $12.5 billion in sales.
E-Commerce is not reserved simply for multi-million dollar global corporations. SMEs can benefit greatly from taking their business online – including exponential client growth, increased profits and a reduction in overhead costs. The opportunity to reach global markets and seize export opportunities is made even easier with proactive initiatives such as Dubai’s Smart City and Dubai Plan 2021.
