After the Indian economy became global in 1992, the next biggest move in the consumer industry is the e-commerce industry. Considering the world market for eCommerce , the Sri Lankan market is pretty small. This is one of the major facts that are in favor of the local players. If it were something like the Indian market with several hundreds of thousands of customers for eCommerce , the local players would have been taken away by the international players. However, the reality is that the Sri Lankan eCommerce market continues to be considered by many international players.
Is it price to have Ecommerce for all the businesses? No, this is not true. Ecommerce is only viable for those businesses, which are willing to cross the boundaries and are not limited to a specific native area. This may be a small retail store selling sweets to a huge multinational company selling medicines.
