Advancements in the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sector in India have propelled the use of digital financial services in the country. Oxigen and Paytm are two notable online financial services companies that are currently operating in India.

Online classifieds segment insights:

The online classifieds segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of ~39% during the 2018-2023 period, and will reach a value of INR 141.58 Bn by the end of 2023. Consumers who are Internet savvy are increasingly using online classifieds, since they are more convenient in terms of search functionalities and find the desired results with regard to jobs, real estate, etc. Quikr, Sulekha, Just Dial, OLX, and Click India are some of the leading digital classifieds websites in India.

Key growth drivers of the market:

o The affordability of hardware such as laptops, netbooks, desktop PCs and ‘Smart’ handheld devices, coupled with rising Internet adoption, especially in Tier-I and Tier-II cities, are aiding the growth of the Indian e-commerce market. Also, the rapid growth of smartphone usage is giving improved access to virtual shopping and e-tailing websites to the tech-savvy generation, thus driving business for the e-commerce market in India.

o India’s per capita income is expected to reach INR 91.92 Mn in 2018-2019, expanding at a rate of ~6.1% from its 2017-2018 value of INR 86.66 Mn. This rise in income has brought about changes in the buying and spending patterns of customers. Changes in demand, along with the popularity of online markets will lead to the growth of the e-commerce market in India.

Key deterrents to the growth of the market:

o Despite having a host of genuine buyers, false or spam orders are a prominent logistical hindrance for e-commerce businesses. Out of the total losses incurred by e-commerce companies in India, false orders account for ~4% on an average. The trend has been observed mainly in Tier II or Tier III cities, where people exhibit a desire to make purchases when they see something online, but eventually cancel the order owing to miscellaneous reasons. Eventually, the sales volume of the e-commerce market diminishes.

o In the Indian market, different types of discounts and price wars put e-commerce companies under severe pressure in competitive situations. Often, companies fail to provide the discounts that customers want, which creates an unfavorable impression for buyers. In response, customers switch to other e-commerce platforms or even offline stores that have similar products at more affordable prices. This, in turn, hampers the growth of the market and the players operating in it.

Market trends:

o A retailer always gets the attention of its target segment through its private label. Both offline retail stores and e-commerce players have started introducing their in-house brands to build strong customer bases.

o Though the electronics sector has the largest share of the e-retail market segment in India, Indian customers are also showing interest in buying other products from online platforms. As a result, it has become a trend among market players to engage in product augmentation, so that customers’ additional demands can be met.
