Is your business ready to take the ‘Quantum Commerce’ leap?

Digital commerce in Asia-Pacific (APAC) is poised to take a quantum leap. While digital commerce sales are surging globally, those in APAC are growing faster. In fact, by 2022, the region is expected to account for 42 per cent of total retail sales globally, and a whopping 70 per cent of digital commerce sales.

Accenture has conducted in-depth research into digital commerce to help APAC businesses understand the likely impact of this quantum leap. Our research includes work by Accenture Research’s Economic Modelling Centre of Excellence to provide forecasts for important economic trends in the sector.

APAC: the new growth frontier

APAC’s quantum commerce growth is being driven by changing consumer expectations. Today’s digitally savvy consumers are involved at every stage of the value chain and increasingly, they will accept nothing less than a fully integrated, omni-channel experience.

The growth opportunities for retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies are huge. Research shows that APAC digital commerce sales will reach US$6.5 trillion by 2025, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.1 per cent. That’s more than three times the CAGR of total APAC retail sales.
