Dropshipping Market Size, Share, Growth (2023-2028)

 Dropshipping market is on a rapid growth trajectory, with a value of USD 225.99 billion in 2022. Experts predict a whopping 23.4% CAGR from 2028.

Dropshipping Market Overview:

Dropshipping is a business model that you can use to manage your store without having inventory. Once you have made a sale, your supplier will send your products from your warehouse, directly to your customer's door. You will never have to worry about storing, packing or shipping your merchandise.Smartphones have revolutionized online shopping with many mobile applications to make the experience easy and convenient for consumers. The growing penetration of smartphones, combined with the increase in disposable income of consumers, is contributing to the growth of the e-commerce market, thus driving the demand for dropshipping services. There has been a notable increase in the investment of the main actors in the e-commerce sector due to the number of buyers inclined to online shopping platforms. According to Adam Enfroy of BigCommerce, dropshipping is a lot of work, no matter how you cut it. Although it seems unimportant, drop shippers must still do business with their wholesale suppliers, order processing, returns and customer service. However, you can increase the attractiveness of your market by keeping a small lot in your room that you can sell as immediate shipping at a high price. This way, you can attract the audience who do not wish to wait, but for those who don't want to pay a premium, the cost and the wait will work in the right way.

Market Growth and Trends:

The e-commerce market in Asia-Pacific has experienced steady growth in recent years due to the increase in disposable income and the augmenting preference for online shopping. This growth in the e-commerce sector should also encourage the practice of dropshipping.

According to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry of the Government of India, India's e-commerce market was valued at $ 38.5 billion in 2017 and is likely to reach $ 200.0 billion by 2026, progressing at a whopping CAGR of above 51.0 %.

Dropshipping Market Drivers and Restraints

Traditional distribution channels force retailers to invest heavily in inventory management. However, with the increasing penetration of e-commerce platforms, retailers are choosing dropshipping services to reduce capital costs for inventory purchase/management. Also, lower capital investment in inventory and logistics has led to increased demand for dropshipping in retailers. The reduction in general costs and the full range of products are other factors that should boost the market growth.Fraudulent or unauthorized transactions should impede global dropshipping market growth. Security in terms of payment is one of the main concerns of the industry because dropshipping mainly refers to online purchases. Payment gateways are susceptible to security breaches or cyber-attacks, which should be a challenge for the market. Direct delivery services require a delivery infrastructure to avoid delays in delivery, damage or loss of packages. As a result, the complexity of transportation and product logistics could slow the growth of the worldwide market.
