Discover Best Practices and Insights to International Business Expansion

Venturing into ecommerce may seem challenging with the sluggish economic growth. Uncertainties about this future run deeper with ongoing geopolitical issues and tensions.

Despite this declining momentum, we can still expect global ecommerce to continue to grow. In 2018, the percentage of the consumers who made at least one purchase online in the last 12 months grew to 93% of internet users in U.S., 97% in the U.K. and 98% in China. In the USA, revenue is expected to show an annual growth rate of 11.6%, resulting in a market value of US$565,696m by 2023.

Recognising the benefits in global business expansion through ecommerce, it is imperative that businesses are equipped with the necessary information and tools to embark on this ecommerce journey. With market focus in the US, Europe and Australia, eBay Singapore is the go-to online market place with massive expertise for businesses to penetrate into these lucrative key global markets.
