The coronavirus pandemic is strengthening e-commerce in India, Indonesia, Mexico, and Nigeria, which already had factors like sizable populations, fast e-commerce growth rates, and a large number of digital buyers working in their favor — but it also faces distinct obstacles in each country.

Pre-pandemic, each e-commerce market was set to reach more consumers and rack up more sales in the coming years due to factors like expanding internet access and smartphone adoption, as well as the development of digital payment methods. However, there have also been factors working against e-commerce in each market, such as unfavorable regulatory environments, geographic obstacles, foreign competition, and lacking infrastructure.

Now, lockdowns and concerns about visiting stores are accelerating these e-commerce markets' development, illustrating how the pandemic is rapidly strengthening opportunities for e-commerce stakeholders around the world. Each of these countries experienced some form of lockdown in response to the coronavirus crisis, making e-commerce more appealing and necessary than ever.

This caused consumers in these countries, where many people had yet to make an online purchase, to start shopping online and plan to make more e-commerce purchases after the pandemic subsides. The sudden uptick in e-commerce shopping, both right now and in the years to come, is giving e-tailers more consumers to target than they would have without the pandemic, offering e-commerce players the chance to scale their operations more quickly than they might've planned.

In The Global E-Commerce Landscape report, Insider Intelligence examines the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the development of the e-commerce markets in India, Indonesia, Mexico, and Nigeria. We lay out the major e-commerce players in each country, including both domestic firms and companies based around the world, to examine the level of competition in the four markets.
