How to accelerate the Growth of Ecommerce in FMCG?

The report, which is based on in-depth analysis of the purchasing habits of 100,000 shoppers in ten of the biggest online FMCG markets, forecasts that ecommerce will account for 5.2% of global FMCG sales by 2016 – up from 3.7% at present.

FMCG Monitor May 2014

In Urban, FMCG growth is stabilizing at 7% increase in value and 3% in volume. However, it is too early to expect the continuous slowdown will soon bottom out. In Rural, some early breaks are well-observed with value growth anchored at around 12% and volume growth at 9%. In terms of retail landscape, Street Shop has recorded the strongest performance at 5% while other key channels are struggling from stagnant growth in Urban. In Rural, Street Shop is holding strong its position while Modern Trade is showing some slowdown compared with the same period last year.
