Global E-Commerce Fulfillment Services Market is valued at approximately USD 70 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.5% over the forecast period 2020-2027. E-commerce fulfillment is a subset of e-commerce business that entails the operations after receiving the order. The operations or functioning of e-commerce business include the packing, shipping, picking, and delivery of products to the consumer’s doorstep. In the present scenario, e-commerce fulfillment service companies have gained considerable popularity, particularly with the significant availability of e-commerce startups and strong-growing small & medium-sized enterprises worldwide. Usually, these startups do not have well-developed distribution networks and robust logistics infrastructure, owing to which they extensively rely on third-party e-commerce fulfillment service providers. These providers enable e-commerce merchants to contract out services, such as shipping, warehousing, and other value-added services like urgent parcel and return management services. Rise in penetration of internet services and increasing popularity of online shopping, along with the increasing number of e-commerce platforms are the few factors responsible for the high CAGR of the market during the forecast period of 2020-2027. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the global e-commerce sales accounted for around USD 25.6 trillion in 2018, demonstrating an increase of 8% from 2017. Likewise, according to the Global E-commerce ranking 2019, China is the leading country in terms of e-commerce revenue (USD 636 billion in 2018), the highest number of online shoppers (1 billion), and the highest number of cross border online shoppers (149.42 million). Similarly, as per the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the e-commerce sector remained for USD 38.5 billion in 2017 and is likely to grow to almost USD 200 billion by 2024. This, in turn, is likely to strengthen the demand for e-commerce fulfillment services, thereby contributing to the market growth all over the world. However, the higher level of competition in e-commerce sector may pose a great threat for e-commerce start-ups; therefore, it is considered to be the major restraining factor for the market growth over the forecast period.
