Ecommerce Landscape in the Americas: Drivers, Market Players, and Telcos’ Role

Summary
Increased internet connectivity and the proliferation of alternative payment methods are two important factors driving ecommerce adoption in the Americas, particularly in less developed markets.Ecommerce activities can be categorized in various forms although the most common one looks at the business-consumer flow.

From this perspective, B2C ecommerce has become the most common type. It is estimated that ecommerce (B2C) transactions in US and Canada generated a combined $875.4 billion in 2018, making them the largest ecommerce market in the Americas. Brazil ranks in a distant third position, followed by Mexico.

Telecom operators in the Americas have been key enablers in this process by providing mobile connectivity services and stimulating the use of connected devices such as smartphones.While a number of telcos have also launched alternative mobile payment platforms, their impact on ecommerce activities has so far been modest.

Despite telcos’ role in the Americas’ ecommerce value chain being limited so far, a number of opportunities in areas such as big data and artificial intelligence (ai) have emerged over the last several years.

The report "Ecommerce Landscape in the Americas: Drivers, Market Players, and Telcos’ Role", looks at the ecommerce market landscape in the Americas, examining the main growth drivers and players operating in it.A special attention is put on understanding the role that telcos play in the ecommerce value chain.
