If there's something you've bought offline that you weren't able to buy online, we're probably thinking about that.”

The rapid development of e-commerce in Latin America in the past few years should register, if it hasn't already, on every e-retailer's radar. Economic growth, broader Internet penetration and the proliferation of inexpensive mobile devices that enable more consumers to shop online are all driving strong growth in e-commerce. And, just as in other regions, entrepreneurial startups are hitting it big by selling online in Latin America. One such star is web-only Brazilian sporting goods merchant Kanui.com.br , whose web sales in 2012 grew nearly 9,000% (that's not a typo!) to $120 million, claiming the title of fastest-growing Latin American e-retailer according to the 288-page 2013 Internet Retailer 2013 Latin America 400, the only industry resource that comprehensively ranks and analyzes the 400 leading web merchants in the Americas outside of the U.S.—the fastest-growing global e-commerce market behind Asia and ahead of the U.S. and Europe. Total spending on all forms of information technology in the region reached an estimated $97 billion in 2012, according to IDC. Hence it's easy to see why investors, analysts and companies anticipate online retailing sales growth, especially in the burgeoning national markets of Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Chile.
Only Internet Retailer provides you with a passport to this exclusive competitive e-retailing business intelligence.
