According to a joint report by Temasek, Google, and Bain & Company, India’s internet economy is anticipated to grow six-fold, reaching a milestone of USD 1 trillion by 2030. The main driving force behind this expansion is expected to be the e-commerce sector. The report also estimates that India’s internet economy was valued at USD 155-175 billion in 2022.
As per the report findings, the B2C e-commerce segment will spearhead the growth, with the B2B e-commerce sector, software-as-a-service providers, and online media, mainly led by over-the-top players, also playing significant roles in driving the anticipated expansion.
Sharing insights from the report, Sanjay Gupta, Country Manager & Vice President of Google India, stated that India’s internet economy is projected to experience a remarkable six-fold growth, reaching USD 1 trillion by 2030.
Gupta further mentioned that a significant shift towards digital transactions is expected in the future, with most purchases taking place digitally.
