The global mobile internet penetration rate is likely to increase from 43% to 61%, during the year 2017-2025. In the North America region, the e-retail market would grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. This is owing to the presence of Amazon which is one of the largest e-retailer in the region. Furthermore, it is estimated that 51% of Americans prefer online shopping which is backed by more than 73% of mobile internet penetration rate in 2018. The Asia Pacific is rapidly becoming the largest region for the online e-retail market especially in countries like China and India. The rapid growth of the e-retail market in India accounts to its size, tendency to adopt the western culture and government initiatives like 100% FDI.

In Europe, the mobile internet penetration rate accounts to more than 72% in 2018 with secured internet transactions. In this region, the UK forms the largest e-commerce market followed by France and Germany. In Latin America, Brazil is expected to remain one of the largest retail e-commerce markets as most consumers in the country are comfortable using credit cards and digital options for payments. The Middle East and Africa would experience low growth in the e-retail market owing to factors such as the preference of paying cash, unreliable shipping in the region, and lack of internet services.
