Consolidation, the way forward for India's e-tail

Consolidation, the way forward for India's e-tail

Although the Indian eCommerce companies have grown at an unprecedented rate over the last couple of years with attractive valuations, they are grappling with a host of other challenges

Many major eCommerce companies are still not profitable
They show no signs of breaking even in near term
All these companies are backed by investors, and they need periodic flow of funds from the investors to sustain their operations
Entry of global players like Amazon with a deep pocket and an already profitable operations outside India complicate the situation further for domestic players

In such a tough environment, consolidation has become a natural consequence for Indian eCommerce companies to improve their competitive edge and to retain investors’ interest in their ventures

In recent times, market leaders like Flipkart, Snapdeal acquired a string of companies to further consolidate their leadership position

This current trend of consolidation is expected to gain further thrust in coming years as the underlying factors that drove consolidation are still in play and show no signs of waning in coming years
