E-Commerce in Russia. New retail. New opportunities

In 2016, the Russian Internet market for the first time will exceed 1 trillion rubles. Despite the difficult economic situation in the country, the on-line trade market is rapidly developing, taking an appreciable part of the buyers from off-line. E-commerce in Russia has a huge potential, as the growth rate of this industry is comparable to global, but the share that is occupied by on-line retail in the total volume of Russian retail is negligible, now it does not exceed 3%. This sphere is rapidly changing, new threats are emerging, new opportunities are emerging. According to forecasts, in the next few years the share of electronic commerce in Russia will increase to 20%.
