It accounts for over 10 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and around 8 percent of the employment. India is the world’s fifth-largest global destination in the retail space. India’s retail market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10 percent to US$ 1.6 trillion by 2026 from US$ 641 billion in 2016. The retail market is expected to grow at 12 percent per annum, modern trade would expand twice as fast at 20 percent per annum, and traditional trade at 10 percent.

India’s Business to Business (B2B) e-commerce market is expected to reach US$ 700 billion by 2020. Online retail is expected to be at par with the physical stores in the next five years. India’s total potential for Business to Consumer (B2C) is estimated to be US$ 26 billion, of which $3 billion can be achieved in the next three years from 16 product categories, according to a study by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT).
