New Research Ranks the 500 Largest E-Retailers in the World's Biggest E-Commerce Market
CHICAGO, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet Retailer®, the leading publisher of strategic business information for e-commerce executives, announced today the release of its 320-page 2013 Asia 500 research publication, available in print, digital and online formats, which provides previously unavailable competitive data and analysis on the 500 leading e-retailers in Asia.
The fruit of over a year's worth of research conducted across Asia's nearly $400 billion direct-to-consumer e-commerce market by Internet Retailer's full-time team of editors, the Internet Retailer 2013 Asia 500 provides scores of details on Asia's booming e-commerce players in such key markets as China and Japan, including their annual web sales in 2012, overall and country market rank, monthly web traffic, conversion rate, average ticket, merchandise category, payments and performance metrics and much more. Overall, this inaugural publication reveals 148 separate financial and operating metrics on each of the 500 Asia web merchants it ranks and offers a short profile on each e-retailer's web-selling strategy.
These leading e-retailers stand at the forefront of the world's largest, fastest-growing e-commerce market-one which last year grew nearly twice as fast as the $226 billion U.S. e-commerce market. "Despite its relatively late start, e-commerce in Asia is already bigger than e-retailing in the United States, and it's growing twice as fast," says Jack Love, publisher of Internet Retailer. "That alone makes this research guide-now the 10th in our library-the most important one we have introduced since we published the first Top 500 Guide nine years ago, because no e-commerce market is going to impact American retailers, manufacturers and vendors more than Asia."
Until now, there's been no comprehensive source of information about the region's top web merchants- such as China's $170 billion e-commerce leader, Alibaba-let alone an objective assessment of their progress. Only Internet Retailer delivers those kinds of analytics with the debut of this indispensable research guide, which includes a wealth of never-before-seen data such as a complete ranking, based on 2012 web sales, of the 500 largest e-retailers in Asia, notably China, India, Japan and South Korea; valuable contact information of nearly 800 e-commerce executives in the region; and a detailed cover story analyzing what's driving the growth in Asian web retailing, including the opportunity U.S. e-retailers see in China and elsewhere.
The 320-page guide is now available in print and digital versions as well as via online database access made possible through a subscription to Top500Guide.com, the world's largest online database of competitive e-commerce information.
