Logistics Market Trends

  • Growing e-commerce industry and rise in trade-related agreements to boost the market growth

The buying and selling of items over the internet are referred to as e-commerce. Third-party service providers cover shipping goods to customers. The e-commerce sector also uses logistics services to manage and oversee the supply chains of e-commerce businesses, allowing these businesses to concentrate on marketing and other company operations. Thus, the adoption of these services is increasing significantly, boosting the expansion of the market due to the various advantages that logistics offers the e-commerce business. For instance, the most recent study from the UN's trade and development body (UNCTAD), released on April 2020, estimates that e-commerce sales reached $25.6 trillion in 2018, equivalent to 30% of GDP.  B2B e-commerce was valued at $21 trillion in 2018, accounting for 83% of all e-commerce, while B2C e-commerce was at $4.4 trillion. Cross-border sales and the rapid expansion of customers are attributed to the growth. A report claims that more than 1.4 billion people made online purchases in 2018, with the United States, China, and Japan dominating consumer e-commerce sales.

Additionally, the expansion of the economy and changing market conditions are the major factors for globalization. Various trade-related activities are increasing as a result of increased globalization. Moreover, the rise of the overseas market is significantly fueled by this development. Logistics services are becoming increasingly important to provide customers with a broader selection of high-quality products delivered on time, who are also price-sensitive. Thus, the market's growth is fueled by an increase in the trading activity carried on by globalization. For instance, in December 2020, India and the UK announced their intention to complete their free trade agreement (FTA) by the end of 2021, such as pharmaceuticals, fintech, chemicals, defense manufacturing, petroleum, and food products. Therefore, the expansion of trade-related agreements has enhanced the market CAGR in recent years.

Automation has also been gaining traction in the industry. The inception of logistics 4.0 is one of the key trends offering lucrative opportunities in the industry. For instance, in July 2020, Movile Group, a mobile commerce platform company, invested in a Colombia-based last-mile delivery startup Mensajeros Urbanos. It aims to expand its operations in 10 major cities in Colombia and Mexico. It is expected to open 50 urban warehouses within ten cities to reduce delivery time windows further and provide items for same-day delivery. Thus, the continuous effort of companies to offer efficient last-mile deliveries is another factor driving the growth of the logistics market analysis.
