Google says Indian e-Commerce market to hit $15 bn by 2016

India’s market is likely to have a whopping 100-million customer base, with women being the major contributors, and would be valued at $15 billion by 2016, according to a report released by on Thursday.

Online search giant Google, in association with Forrester Consulting, released their latest report on online shopping trends, indicating the figures for India.

From a customer base of mere eight million in 2012, it has climbed to 35 million in 2014, according to the report, which also claims that by 2016 India’s customer base will be 100 million — a phenomenal growth of over 12 times in just four years.

The current valuation of the market, which stands at about $3 billion for e-commerce now, is also set to shoot up to $15 billion by 2016.

The report was released during Googles’ announcement of the — the 2014 installment of its yearly online shopping festival between December 10 and 12.

Following browsing trends, which have broadly shifted from the desktop to mobile devices in India, online shopping is also expected to follow suit, as one out of three customers currently makes transactions through mobiles in Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities.

The number in Tier-3 cities is even higher, with every with every second person shopping online through their mobile. In 2014, 50 per cent of shopping queries were made through mobile devices, compared to 24 per cent in 2012.

Rajan Anandan, managing director, Google India, said: “Mobiles are driving the growth in every single Internet product entity. In other markets, Internet took off on the desktop; in India, its happening on mobiles.”

Identifying the gender contribution to the shopping debate, the report states that women would be the most significant contributors to this growth comprising almost 40 per cent of the projected customer base. Although men account for the majority of the customer base as of now, in Tier-1 cities, women spend almost double the amount men spend on online retail. In terms of frequency as well, women outnumber men, shopping more number of times.

Nitin Bawankule, industry director for e-commerce, Google India, said the current gap was due to product categorisation where electronics and mobiles make up for almost 75 per cent of the traded products, mostly dominated by men. Women still maintain their hold in the “soft segments” such as apparels, skin care products, jewellery, home furnishings, small appliances, and accessories. However, Bawankule claims, as more and more women have taken to the browsing experience, the growth rates in these sectors have shot up significantly.

For instance, the highest growth rate was seen in the apparel segment — almost 64 per cent over last year, followed by baby care products at 53 per cent, beauty and products at 52 per cent and home furnishings at 49 per cent.

Compared to this, the currently dominant segments of electronics has seen the least growth of just about 35 per cent over last year.

The online retail boom, however, has been plagued by a series of unfortunate events with some of the major e-commerce giants receiving flak from consumers during the bumper sale days. Google claims though the growth numbers seem promising, a staggering 62 per cent of the respondents in their survey showed they were not satisfied with the service from the merchants.

Privacy remained the top concern with almost 65 per cent of the respondents, who said they were gravely concerned about sharing their personal information. The tangibility factor amounting to trust also remained a major deal breaker with almost 55 per cent thinking the products may not be up to the mark.

Govt aims at raising savings; re-launches Kisan Vikas Patra

With the objective to raise savings in the country, the government today re-launched Kisan Vikas Patra…
 FM Arun Jaitley said this simple product would be a bearer instrument without name of the holder in the first phase. PTI

With the objective to raise savings in the country, the government today re-launched Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP), an instrument which will provide trusted option of investment to poor and keep them off ponzi schemes.
“In the last 2-3 years, savings rate in country has declined from a record high of 36.8 per cent to below 30 per cent due to slowdown in the economy. It is, therefore, necessary to encourage people to save more,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said during the launch of the revamped KVP.
KVP would serve two purposes, he said, adding, one it would help poor gullible investors to channelise their savings towards trusted government scheme instead of some ponzi schemes, where hard earned savings disappears.
“Secondly, there is an urgent need to raise savings in the country…these savings are then used for nation building. Such saving instrument not only earn interest but help in development of the country,” he said.
Talking about the features of the instrument, the Finance Minister said this simple product would be a bearer instrument without name of the holder in the first phase.
Available in the denomination of Rs 1,000, 5,000, 10,000 and 50,000, the amount invested in KVP would be doubled in 100 months.
KVP, that has got no upper ceiling for investment, can be encashed after a lock-in period of 30 months.
Initially, the certificates will be sold through post offices, but the same will soon be made available to the investing public through designated branches of nationalised banks, Jaitley said.
However, savers would not get any tax benefit for their investment in KVP.
“Recognising the need to provide easy instruments of savings for people who have not had access to other savings instruments… And therefore you have to rely either on keeping the money with them or buying gold, gold silver,” Finance Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said.
Speaking on the occasion, Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said “KVP was a popular instrument for small savings and it had an emotional connect with the people of the country.”
For around 100 years, he said, the postal department has been engaged in small savings schemes and there are around 30.8 lakh account holders currently under it.
Postal department is undertaking 7 small saving schemes of Government of India and it has an outstanding of around Rs 6 lakh crore, he added.
KVP was discontinued in 2011. The scheme was very popular among the investors and the percentage share of gross collections secured in KVP after its launch in 1988 was in the range of 9-29 per cent against the total collections received under all National Savings Schemes in the country.
Gross collections under the scheme in the year 2010-11 stood at Rs 21,631.16 crore which was 9 per cent of the total gross collections during the year.
