By UK India Business Council (UKIBC)

The UK India Business Council working with the Department of International Trade is pleased tooffer you a ‘digital-first’, faster route to India market through a turnkey e-commerce solution.

Why enter through e-commerce?

The India e-commerce market, valued at US$ 120 billion and growing at 51%, offers UK businesses with great opportunities across multiple sectors. Propelled by rising smartphone penetration and increasing consumer wealth, the market is expected to grow to US$ 200 billion by 2026. Increased uptake in online purchases during lockdown have skewed consumer behaviour in favour of e-commerce which may further accelerate the market growth in the months to come.
