The global E-commerce Fulfillment Services market size is expected to be worth around US$ 113.57 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global E-commerce Fulfillment Services market size was valued at US$ 69.66 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

The rapid penetration of internet services and the resulting rise in the number of online shoppers is the major factor driving demand for e-commerce fulfillment services worldwide. The consumer expectations with regards to delivery time, shipping speed, and associated costs are changing rapidly. The major reason for consumers abandoning online shopping carts includes delayed shipping. Therefore, established merchants such as Amazon.com, Inc. have started delivering orders in the shortest turnaround time, in some cases within an hour across large cities. This has been possible only because of the strategic location and positioning of fulfillment service centers.

The growing demand for the shorter delivery period has augmented the need for micro warehouses with a wide geographical presence to ensure the order reaches the end-user in a short period. Picking and bundling play a vital role in fulfilling consumer demand for rapid delivery. Automated packaging and labeling solutions used at fulfillment centers help staff sort, locate, seal, package, and label products in relatively lesser time, thereby accelerating the delivery process.

Report Highlights

The e-commerce shipping fulfillment service segment led the market and accounted for more than 38% of the global revenue in 2019. The trade liberalization policies and cross-border shipment agreements have resulted in increased trade and shipping activities. With the proliferation of the e-commerce industry, e-commerce companies prefer to outsource shipping services to third-party fulfillment service providers and concentrate on other key business operations. Thus, shipping services account for the largest revenue share in the e-commerce fulfillment service market.

The consumer electronics segment is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment, registering a CAGR of 8.7% from 2020 to 2027. The growth is attributed to the burgeoning demand for consumer electronics coupled with the need for careful handling of fragile electronics products. Consumer electronics such as mobile phones, tablets, and televisions, among others often need special care while packaging. Since the majority of consumer electronics are extremely fragile, they are required to be packed carefully to reduce the risk of damage. Additionally, the shipping boxes/ cartons should also be appropriately sealed to prevent moisture from getting in and defecting the product.

The Asia Pacific dominated the e-commerce fulfillment services market and accounted for over 24% of the global revenue share in 2019. The region is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period on the back of increasing internet penetration and growth prospect offered by relatively untapped markets in the region (rural areas and second-tier cities). Additionally, countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea are among the top 10 exporters of merchandise and account for a large portion of global e-commerce sales. Thus, the strong growth prospect of the e-commerce industry in the region is the major factor supporting regional market growth.

North America is also projected to exhibit a strong CAGR of around 6.02% from 2020 to 2027. The growth is characterized primarily by the presence of key market participants in the region such as Red Stag Fulfillment, Shipfusion Inc., Amazon.com, Inc., among others. Greater adoption of automation technologies for efficient management of fulfillment services has won the trust of e-commerce companies in the region, leading to market growth. Besides, after China, the U.S. has emerged as the second-largest market for e-commerce globally, driving the demand for fulfillment services.
