Amazon’s recent growth into the Nordics region is an exciting step for e-commerce development. Amazon.se officially launched at the end of October, becoming Amazon’s 7th marketplace in Europe and 17th country overall across the globe. This expansion strengthens Amazon’s position as one of the largest online marketplaces. As a result, having a brand presence on Amazon can strengthen your online presence and help you expand into new markets and reach new customers.
Amazon Amidst the E-Commerce Landscape
It is no secret that e-commerce is booming across the globe, especially as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The Nordic e-commerce landscape specifically is a fast-growing and sizable market, according to a BCG report. The report finds that Nordic B2C e-commerce reached almost €24 billion (just over $29B) in 2019 and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
An e-commerce presence is a critical channel for brands everywhere to continually serve customers. Amazon remains steadfast in its commitment to offering a wide variety of products, low prices, and a convenient shopping experience, according to CNBC. These tenements are what draw consumers to online shopping in the first place. FBA options can easily bring your products directly and reliably to local customers. An Amazon presence can help your brand capitalize on increased exposure on one of the world’s largest online marketplaces.
According to BCG, Amazon is poised to capture 5-10% of the Nordics e-commerce market. This is an enormous opportunity for brands to grow in the upcoming years.
