Key Market Trends

Growing E-commerce in the Country

The Philippines is continuing to rely on e-commerce and the digital economy to manage its economic recovery in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. With brick-and-mortar businesses being hit by lockdown measures, the Philippine e-commerce sector has seen a surge in the midst of the pandemic. As a result, the Philippines acknowledges the significance of e-commerce and the digital economy as key engines of growth and economic recovery.

According to data from the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), e-commerce contributed 3.4%, or USD 12 billion (PHP 599 billion), to the country’s GDP in 2020. The Philippines’ current goal is to increase e-commerce revenue to USD 20.82 billion (PHP 1.03 trillion), or 4.3% of GDP, by 2022, and to USD 23 billion (PHP 1.2 trillion), or 5.5% of GDP, by 2023.

The Philippine government aims to address or reform challenges and barriers that hinder the country’s full potential for e-commerce development. Part of the expectations and it is observed that in the future, there would be a more systematic government regulation for proper taxation, protection of consumers, and infrastructure improvements.

Some popular e-commerce platforms include Shopee, Lazada, Zalora, and Beauty MNL.

Growing Transportation and Storage Sector

In 2021, the gross value added (GVA) generated from the transportation and storage industry in the Philippines reached approximately PHP 602 billion. This reflected a significant increase from the previous year’s total. The sector was significantly affected by the pandemic, but it is recovering. It is expected to grow further during the forecast period.

In order to increase efficiency and profitability, warehouse operators are adopting new technology, such as the Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS), and adding new services. Additionally, developers are exploring the fringes of Manila and the regions for the next site of their industrial investments, capitalizing on the rising demand in various hubs across the country.

With the country’s ever-growing population and the rise of domestic consumption, the Philippine economy continues to expand. Moreover, with the rise of the economy also comes the rise of the logistics and transport industry. As the production and distribution of goods increase, so does the need to move these items. However, the geographical layout of the Philippines is a complex one, with thousands of islands connected through hundreds of links to form one big archipelago. The trucking sector plays a crucial role in bridging this gap.

Logistics and warehousing are two of the most important industries in the Philippines. Warehousing experienced huge growth due to a high increase in trade activities in and around the country.
