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.

testimonials

"I have attended many  supply chain related conferences but the 2013 Vietnam Supply Chain Congress in Ho Chi Minh City, 2-4 October, 2013, has been a very refreshing experience. The key value add has been a result of very well organized program, which allowed for much needed networking in the maturing Vietnam. Importantly there have been enough space given for sessions and discussions related to the business environment in Vietnam, current status and future prospects. I have enjoyed the panel discussions, focused on important topics, and managed in a full of energy way with many interactions between panelists and the audience.  On top of this the organization and all arrangements have been meticulous, the staff very friendly and helpful what resulted in a very comfortable experience. I am looking forward to the next year Congress.”
