The Big Picture: The E-Commerce Impact on Global Retail Markets

Major e-commerce competitors, investors and analysts know one thing for sure about the market they compete in and study—it's global in nature and becoming more so every day. Now, for the very first time, Internet Retailer introduces the 2016 Global 1000, the only comprehensive report and database that profiles, ranks and analyzes the world's 1,000 largest e-retailers, which together sold $610 billion online last year, accounting for 35% of the world's e-commerce revenue. The Global 1000 also reports gross merchandise value and growth rates for each of the world's 18 largest online marketplaces (including Amazon, Alibaba, Rakuten and JD.com) which generated $908 billion in online revenue last year. Their sales combined with the annual revenue of the world's top 1,000 e-retailers means that the rankings and data in Global 1000 covers 75% of the world's global e-commerce business.
