    VGP - Viet Nam’s e-commerce market is predicted to expand 25 percent, with the market scale projected to increase to US$20 billion by the end of this year, according to the Viet Nam E-Business Index (EBI) 2023 rankings.

    The booming of e-commerce in 2023 and developing firmly in the following years is aided by a series of growth drivers such as the wave of digital transformation, consumers' trust, technological infrastructure, and favorable mechanisms and policies issued by the Government.

    Meanwhile, the scale of the country's retail e-commerce market was estimated to reach US$16.4 billion last year, accounting for 7.5 percent of the country's goods and service revenues. 

    There were approximately 57-60 million Vietnamese people shopping online, with their spending averaging US$260-285.

    The White Book on Vietnamese E-Business 2022 noted that up to 74.8 percent of Vietnamese internet users purchased goods and services online, with the most consumed commodities named apparel and cosmetics, household items, and technological and electronic devices.
