Global Agricultural E-commerce Market: Introduction
The need for e-commerce has increased extensively, with the increasing penetration of e-commerce and digitization mode of businesses. Agricultural e-commerce offers an important opportunity for cost reduction and demand enhancement of products. In recent years, more and more smallholders in developing countries such as China have begun to sell agri products directly to consumers via online shops from a third party trade platform.

Increasing Adoption by Smallholders
It is increasingly clear that e-commerce has become a new and effective way of helping smallholders gain access to the market. E-commerce has empowered smallholders to sell most of their products at a higher price than before because of the elimination of the price squeeze from intermediaries and the marketing constraints of information asymmetry. The adoption by small holders is driving the growth of the agricultural e-commerce market.
Unawareness and Poor System Infrastructure
South America and Asia Pacific which are fastest growing regions face strong technological and digital gaps within the agricultural industry. The level of awareness among farmers or small sellers and the network infrastructure to smoothly run agricultural e-commerce at remote locations is not very effective. Unawareness about agricultural e-commerce and poor network infrastructure is hampering the growth of the market.
Asia Pacific to Dominate the Global Agricultural E-commerce Market

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the agricultural e-commerce market during the forecast period due to its strong dominance in the agricultural industry and increasing adoption of e-commerce platforms for selling agricultural products.
