The Italy dropshipping market size is expected to reach USD 5.82 billion by 2028 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 18.1% from 2021 to 2028.
Although e-commerce penetration is lower than 5% in Italy, the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 proved transformational for the online business models.
Since the outbreak of coronavirus and the resultant lockdown, the uptake of online shopping has witnessed a surge. While it is early to deduce whether the pandemic will bring about a massive shift in consumer buying behavior or not, it is most likely expected to result in changing shopping habits among consumers.
A shift in consumer preference for online shopping amidst the pandemic will bring about several changes to the logistic and e-commerce sector in the country. Although the grocery and provision sector has been at the forefront in online shopping through 2020, we expect this will create a shift in consumer buying patterns, with habits gradually expected to change from brick-and-mortar to online shopping.
These changing patterns will create considerable opportunities for online marketplaces that offer various product categories ranging from apparel to electronics.
