The Indian e-commerce market has been among the major beneficiaries of the COVID-19 pandemic, with containment measures introduced the country to the convenience of online shopping. The shopping pattern across the country experienced a structural shift with e-commerce companies such as Flipkart Private Limited and Amazon.com, Inc. observing that the prioritization of safety and social distancing coupled with large smartphone user-based and low-cost data plans have further galvanized the growth of e-commerce in tier 2 and tier 3 cities during the pandemic. The pandemic also propelled the purchase frequency of FMCG products such as fruits, vegetables, pulses, grains, beverages, cleaning supplies, and cosmetics, thereby creating new growth opportunities for the Indian e-commerce market.

The growing traction of E-commerce in India has led to the generation of a large amount of user data, which is being leveraged by the market players to devise customer-centric trends and experiences. Data management, predictive analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are at the forefront of driving innovation in the Indian e-commerce space. Trends such as personalized recommendations, user experience, and customization are possible through the optimum availability of data. Moreover, the market is also experiencing the emergency of hyper-local deliveries through Quick Commerce. Quick commerce typically refers to the rapid delivery of FMCG and consumer electronics products within a span of 10-30 minutes. Q-commerce is gaining momentum in metro cities while establishing its foothold in tier 2 cities. The model is based on dark stores situated near localities to facilitate fast deliveries, thereby augmenting the e-commerce market growth.
