Since inception, eCommerce has always been an amazing contributor to the growth of retail and other consumer businesses. However, in recent years, due to a surge in the usage of Smartphones and tablets, eCommerce is getting superseded by mCommerce. And, that’s mainly due to the inclination of users towards mobile technologies. Earlier who used to rely on the web have now switched to smart and handheld devices for buying, selling and doing transactions. Not convinced yet? Let stats do the talking:

  • According to a report from Juniper Research, in 2017, m-Commerce transactions will exceed $3.2 trillion, high from $1.5 trillion in 2013.

It’s not far-fetched to say that retailers will soon rely largely on m-Commerce for achieving profitable growth

Soon mobile is going to become the key channel all across the world in retail industry. With larger screen sizes, customized, mobile-optimized user experiences and swifter connectivity, users prefer to use their mobile phones and tablets. In 2016, transactions done on mCommerce products were slightly over 50% in a lot of countries. That means 2017 will be the peak point where mobile will be used more in the retail industry. To stay ahead of the competition, it’s imperative for retailers to develop a user-centric mobile approach.

Till 2016, retailers were like: “Do I need to get a Mobile App?”, now in 2017, retailers are like: “Who will develop my app?”
