  3. 3. Flipkart-Walmart deal has been a landmark moment in the history of e-tailing. Since its humble beginnings in 2000, e-tailing has come a long way. The growth story of the industry in the last 10 years has been nothing less than remarkable. While the growth had slowed down between 2014- 2016 due to multiple factors like DIPP regulations and demonetization, 2017 has seen a turnaround for the industry. E-tailing has not been just a growth story but also a story of innovation. Indian conditions presented challenges which were not seen before in other countries but successful players in the space have constantly re-invented themselves. Among other things, e-tailers have created supply chain and payments solutions that have also impacted other industries. Now, as the two large players dominate the ecosystem, the industry is at an important juncture. It is important to understand how the industry has evolved so far and where it is heading. With deep expertise in this space, RedSeer has been able to provide an in-depth perspective on the industry in this report. PREFACE Anil Kumar Founder & CEO
  4. 4. At Trifecta Capital, our continuing passion is to enable the Indian start-up ecosystem in creating large and enduring companies through value-added capital. We hope to achievethisbybeingthepreferredprovider of Venture Debt for Emerging India as well as leveraging our industry knowledge and our network of relationships. Generating independent insights and sharing these with the eco-system is another way for us to contribute to the new economy. We’re excited to present to you along with RedSeer, our Data Partners for this Summit, The State of the Indian e-tailing Industry, which continues to evolve rapidly and is poised to grow to US$ 50 billion over the next 2-3 years. Unlike the past, this growth is likely to be largely driven by the new smartphone shopper coming from the non-metros. While the Indian Internet landscape is abound with plenty of opportunity across a variety of business models, this report is mainly focussed on e-commerce and is timely in that it comes on the heels of the largest e-commerce deal in the world – the Flipkart-Walmart deal. We believe that the investment commitments of Amazon, Flipkart/Walmart, Paytm/Alibaba/Softbank will expand the market manifold and further create a multitude of opportunity for defensible and differentiated vertical e-commerce plays across Grocery, Furniture, Pharmacy, Fashion and other verticals outside the large horizontal players. We also feel that an omni-channel strategy combining the access and reach through online but the touch and feel of offline will become more pervasive in e-commerce business models. RedSeer has conducted 36,000 customer surveys, 5000+ seller surveys and several industry expert interactions to generate some very interesting findings. We would like to thank them for partnering with us in bringing these deep insights to you. We hope you find this report valuable!

Performance on key fundamentals remains robust, with strong GDP growth and sustained FDI inflows driving the economy and driving up the optimism in the stock markets. Lifted by the this strong macroeconomic performance, India continues to generate growing private wealth for its citizens, which enables a sustained consumption boom amongst them- which will further lead to a virtuous cycle of GDP and consumption growth. 35 22 24 31 40 36 2011-12 2012-13 2013-14 2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 15.5 19.4 21.1 27.5 26.1 26.6 29.9 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Source: CSO, RBI, DIPP Sensex CY closing value (‘000) FDI (USD Mn)

  12. 12. 6 Key driver of India’s GDP growth is the growing share of private consumption. Share of consumption in GDP remains significantly higher than in China, where government spending is a strong driver of GDP growth. While in China the government has for years been trying to rebalance the GDP away from investment and focused more on a sustainable, consumption driven growth, India already finds itself in midst of a consumption driven boom that is likely to further accelerate in coming years. This means a number of opportunities lies in store for consumer focused industries including retail. Source: World bank, CEIC

  14. 14. 8 India’s working age population is expected to register a strong increase over the next decade, spurred by robust macro performance and growing job opportunities across sectors. This will drive the creation of a new consumer class that is expected to further push consumption performance. This newly minted consumer class is likely to consume in a way fundamentally different to prior generations. Being the most digitally savvy consumer generation ever, for this consumer class, digital channels are expected to account for a higher-than-ever share of the buying journey, right from discovery to purchase. Together these two trends of 1) increasing consumption and 2) growing comfort with digital channels are likely to have a very strong growth impact on India’s digital economy in general and on e-tailing sector in specific and drive high double digit growth for foreseeable future in these sectors.

  16. 16. 10 Data Consumption has increased with the onset of 4G in the market and competitive pricing due to the arrival of Reliance Jio has led to reduction in cost of data which has been the major growth driver for internet usage in India. Key takeaway Source: Internet Trends 2017 - KPCB Over the last few years, India has seen two mega trends that has radically altered the nature of consumption. Firstly, data costs have seen a sharp fall, driven by aggressive pricing of Reliance Jio, which also led competitors to cut down the pricing drastically. As a result of these events, almost overnight a hitherto unaffordable service had become very much affordable for a large mass of India’s population. Secondly, growing availability of affordable and high quality smartphones, often made even more affordable with no-cost EMIs and buyback schemes, has seen smartphone adoption soaring in the country. Together, these two trends have led to a sharp spike in data consumption levels in the country and driven India’s total data consumption to the highest in the world. This is creating a population of digitally savvy users who are as comfortable streaming video online as they are with online purchase of high end furniture.

  18. 18. 12 Growing digital savviness made possible by the spurt in smartphone usage and internet access would drive India’s digital economy rapidly going forward. We expect India’s online shopping population to more than double over the next 3 years to reach 185 Mn by 2020. Driven largely by this user base growth and increased online spending of existing users, we expect the online retail market to reach USD 50 Bn by 2020 (from USD 19 Bn in 2017), accounting for ~4.5% of all retail purchases in India. This is a near doubling of the penetration from the 2.4% figure currently observed. This development is likely to have profound implications and throw up massive opportunities for both e-tailers as well as offline players. However, reaching the above milestones will not be easy for e-tailers and will require solving multiple adoption challenges on the consumer side. Source: Industry Report, RedSeer IP 12

  20. 20. 14 A major obstacle to rapid e-tailing growth in India is the fact that online shoppers are a mere 20% of the total internet user base in India, which is a considerably lower number compared to counterpart countries at a similar stage. Historical reasons for a slow adoption of online shopping have been many- While growing comfort with online transactions is likely to follow the smartphone and cheap data boom, e-tailers would need to rethink their strategy and value proposition to appeal better to the non-online users. Only then can 90+Mn new users be successfully onboarded online by 2020 and the market can be on the right track to hit USD 50 Bn GMV by 2020. Long delivery times Value proposition of online shopping being not strong enough Low internet speeds or lack of good quality smartphones to enable online purchase Lack of trust on online payment systems Lack of trust on online bought products/ platforms Source: TRAI, RedSeer IP 14

  22. 22. 16 The major growth engine for online purchases going forward is likely to be the Tier 2+ city consumer. This is the population that was least digitally savvy till date, measured in terms of % total population which was shopping online. In comparison, the metro consumer is the most digitally savvy, with ~70% of eligible population already shopping online. However, e-tailers have made concentrated efforts to drive Tier2+ online shopper growth recently. Their strategy has revolved primarily along the below levers- This approach has seen some success, with Tier 2+ shoppers likely to grow 50% y-o-y to reach 56 Mn by 2018. We expect that e-tailers will continue to leverage further innovations (e.g. O2O channel expansion) to bring onboard further Tier2+ shoppers and increase the Tier 2+ shoppers count to 106 Mn by 2020. Growing selection of relevant products including private labels and affordability schemes targeted at value conscious customers (which dominate these cities) Stronger supply chain networks catering to Tier 2+ cities Increased cashbacks to remove barriers to digital payments adoption Targeted and localized/relevant advertising campaigns Use of assisted shopping to reduce barriers to first time usage Source: RedSeer IP 16

  26. 26. 20 E-tailing had humble beginnings in early 2000s when shopping on the internet was virtually unthinkable. Since it was pre- smartphone era, the access to internet was a major barrier even for middle and upper class. Early players had to innovate a lot in logistics and payments space to overcome initial challenges. Post-2009, while the barrier for ‘access to internet’ was falling, it also coincided with smartphones getting popular. This was the era of fastest growth. A lot of e-commerce companies started and got initial funding in the time period but while some of them flourished, others were shut down in the same period. Post 2014, the industry has entered the ‘acceleration phase’ where top-4 players are battling for the leadership position. Some consolidation has also happened in the industry. GMV quality has significantly improved from the early years and players are committed to move towards profitability. Source: Primary Research; RedSeer IP 20

  28. 28. 22 E-tailing has evolved differently in different countries. While in US, consumers started shopping online through desktop and then graduated to mobile; in China and India, the consumers have “leapfrogged” directly to mobile. Due to this, a large population shopping online in China and India is mobile-native. The penetration in US has reached 79% while in China, it has grown to 55% in a relatively shorter period of time. Indian e-tailing, which has gained momentum in thelast10years,hasreachedapenetration of 20%. A large part of this is driven by metro population, where penetration has reached 32%. Comparison with developed countries clearly demonstrates that Indian e-tailing has a lot of room to grow in the coming years as the middle income expands and online penetration increases. The growth will be driven by not just increasing number of shoppers but also per capita online spend which is ~10% of US in the current scenario. Online shopper penetration is the lowest in comparison to other countries which signifies that a small share of internet users is buying online, however the penetration in metro and tier-1 cities is growing at a faster pace than tier-II cities. Source: Industry Report Key Takeaway Annual spend per shopper on online shopping is still very low and constitutes of ~15% of the private consumption per capita which is ~55% in China. 22

Majority of the users who will be added in the next 3 years are mobile-native. They will access internet for the first time directly on smartphone, bypassing the desktop altogether. While desktop will still remain 20% by 2020, it is largely driven by people who access e-tailing websites in their office, whereas a large part of online shopping is now happening on-the-go.

  32. 32. 26 Considering the total Gross GMV to be 100 USD it is seen around the industry that around 10% cancellation take place before the order is shipped and around 17% is the total returns that are happening on the shipped order. 12% is the gross revenue which is generated from the sale of products while the net revenue is around 5-6 USD. Supply chain is 13% off the shipped gmv while advertisement, admin expenses contribute 12% of the total fulfilled GMV Average cashburn is 15% of the total value which is largely due to the competitive environment among the players.

  34. 34. 28 Cash On Delivery (COD) is an Indian phenomenon where customers pay through cash/ card at the time of delivery of goods from the e-tailer instead of paying at the time of purchase. COD has been arguably an important driver of e-commerce growth due to the cash- heavy nature of Indian economy and low penetration of digital and plastic substitutes. During the demonetisation, COD fell sharply as households faced shortage of cash due to lack of availability of high value notes. While it was predicted that the COD share will continue falling down as people were adopting digital means, yet post demonetisation period, the COD share rose back to previous levels. While many believe that due to continued increasing adoption of digital payment substitutes, COD share will fall down, we have to be cognizant of the fact that adoption of digital payment systems is still a phenomenon more common in metros and tier-1 cities. As the new e-tailing customers are added from tier- 2+ cities, they will continue to prefer the COD medium as the “trust” on e-tailers continue to be low in tier-2+ cities. Source: RedSeer IP

  36. 36. 30 Based on extensive consumer research conducted by RedSeer, “trust” on e-tailers remains a key issue among the consumers. The ability to return the products, especially the ‘no questions asked’ policy adopted by some e-tailers has been able to convert some of the non-shoppers into e-tailing shoppers. Out of Gross GMV, orders contributing to 10% of GMV is canceled before shipping. These are typically impulse purchases or the consumer finds a better option on other e-tailer or offline. Orders contributing to 22% of shipped GMV are returned; these are either RTO, where delivery is attempted but either the consumer refuses to accept the delivery or is unavailable, or RVP (Reverse Pickups) where product is accepted by the customer on delivery and then returned due to quality or fitting issues.

  38. 38. 32 Key Takeaway As delivery and post delivery experience is infrastructure driven, e-tailers are continuously investing in expanding their supply chain capabilities and reach. As the offerings on various e-tailing platforms have standardized, e-tailers are differentiating themselves from competition by improving the purchase and post-purchase experience. Purchasing experience on e-tailing platforms has significantly improved in the last few years owing to average industry NPS of 22% especially through better app experience (more intuitive interface, better search, accurate description etc.), product assortment (more brands coming online etc.) and reviews. But, the e-tailers have been unable to match the customer expectations on post- delivery front even though significant investments have been made by e-tailers to control and improve the experience. For example: Returns processes have continuously improved over the last few years and refunds are processed much quicker. Source: RedSeer IP 32

  42. 42. 36 The Indian e-tailing industry has seen good momentum from 2014. Though there was a slump in 2016 with the growth being just 12%, the industry recovered well in 2017. The growth of H1-2017 was around 15-20% but the industry picked up well in H2-2017, primarily due to multiple sale events. A key reason for this recovery is the shift in the focus of the e-tailers to Tier- 2+ cities. We saw good amount of new users being added from the Tier2+ cities in 2017 which was a very positive sign for the industry. And thus we feel this growth would continue and the industry would touch $50 bn mark by 2020. Source: RedSeer IP 36

Source: RedSeer IP Note:
  44. 44. 38 The industry focused towards adding new shoppers from Tier2+ cities in 2017 and thus we saw an increase of 27% in the number of shoppers in the year. Telecom operators like Jio did a great job in bringing more and more people online which was the key reason for the addition of these new shoppers. The increased online penetration and the good experience provided by the e-tailers No. of shoppers are expected to increase with the shift of focus towards Tier-II+ cities which will drive the growth in future Increased online penetration of smaller categories with higher frequency of purchase will be the major factors in driving the growth Average order value is expected to remain stagnant due to the increase in first time buyers leading to lower order values E-tailing industry will witness a y-o-y growth with smaller categories like FMCG growing at a rapid pace made people more comfortable with shopping online and hence we saw an increase in the frequency of buying.

Among smaller categories- share of Home and FMCG category increased in 2017. The industry witnessed growth across all the categories but mobiles continued to dominate. Mobiles, majorly due to the effect of exclusives, contributed nearly 50% to the overall GMV of the industry followed by fashion and electronics. Smaller categories like FMCG and Home have witnessed good growth primarily due to the base effect.

Brands like Xiomi, Motorola and Lenovo which were very small a couple of years back have become giants in the last two years primarily with exclusive tie-up with their e-tailers.

We thus see a tendency of the users to upgrade the price brackets when changing phones. Not only has the price bracket moved up, the replacement cycles have come down indicating that a user today always wants a new and good phone with them. The brands have thus started to rapidly upgrade the phone by adding news features improving the quality of the camera etc. to attract the high disposable consumers. The combination of these two trends; increasing price brackets and falling of replacement cycles, will continue to drive the growth of mobile category for the e-tailers.

Till date, fashion failed to live up to its lofty potential, with the category growing in slower than expected to reach USD 3.7 Bn by 2017. Slow adoption of new shoppers, high return rates etc have together led to this category only realizing a small part of its large potential. However, fashion e-tailers are well placed to accelerate growth in this category over the next few years, owing to the below factors- Weexpectthatabovetrendsinconjunction with continued innovation by fashion e-tailers should see a steady growth in fashion category (33% CAGR) to reach ~USD 9 Bn by 2020.

Strong demand for online fashion in these cities is spurred by a high aspirations for branded and quality products which is not matched by enough penetration of organized retail and branded products in these cities- a clear market gap for online retailers to close. Thus as Tier 2+ city shoppers increase to 185 Mn by 2020, we expect fashion category to grow in tandem. However, this rapid growth is not a given. E-tailers need to solve a plethora of bottlenecks to rapid fashion growth including solving for size issues, fake products, need for touch and feel etc. While innovations like omnichannel, easy returns etc are solving some of these issues, e-tailers would need to further innovate from bottom-up, taking into account the peculiarities of shopping behaviour in these Tier cities (e.g. high level of value consciousness), to drive growth. 48

Considering the huge size of this pie and the potential for high repeat purchases, e-tailers have now turned attention to FMCG as the new battleground to drive e-tailing growth. While this category has existed online in some form since 2011 onwards, the category has really come into focus the last couple of years. This phase from 2014- 2017 can be called the ‘experimentation phase’ for this categories- as e-tailers tried expanding into various business models and geographies to see what works. In this period, the difficult financials of this category led to many closures inspire of heavy investments, as e-tailers struggled to discover what works and what doesn’t. What we see 2017 onwards is a relative stabilization of a few business models as e-tailers gradually have found the balance between growth and unit economics. Few business models have turned out to be more popular than others for e.g. warehouse fulfilled models and e-tailers are now expanding across city tiers with these models. Horizontals are also now deepening their interest in their category to find a competitive edge away from low margin electronics categories. Source: Primary Research; Online Reports; RedSeer IP 52

We are bullish on the growth of this category and expect this to be one of the fastest growing segments in e-tailing over next few years. A combination of supply and demand side factors are likely to drive growth for this categorygoingforward.Onthesupplyside, smaller cosmetics verticals are gaining greater adoption using a combination of wide and exclusive selection, innovation in product/channel including having strong content and offline stores and savvy use of influencers etc. Larger verticals are also about to expand heavily in this category after focusing on consolidating apparel and footwear till date. They are likely to invest in supply chains and product side innovation along with aggressive marketing to further propel online cosmetics adoption in India. On the demand side, the Indian shopper is turning increasingly aspirational and often finds desired products unavailable in nearby offline stores. These are shoppers who are already comfortable with shopping online for other categories, and are increasing likely to buy cosmetics online as well as the online shopping experience improves and wider selection is available. Together, these trends are leading to rapid growth in cosmetics market and we expect it to reach USD 1 Bn in size by 2020, growing at 60% CAGR over next three years. Source: RedSeer IP 58

The trend is towards increased share of inventory- led model as e-commerce companies look towards controlling the customer experience in a better way. As DIPP regulations do not allow more than 25% of sales through one seller, the inventory-led model is driven by companies who are wholly or partially owned by e-tailers.

There is also a churn in sellers who opt out of selling online due to limited success. E-tailers are also trying to better the customer experience by fulfilling a higher share of orders through their own fulfilment centers.

Processing of orders, at the back-end, plays a significant role in the success of an e-tailer. Efficient supply chain can significantly improve delivery times for products to reach the customers. Fulfilment Centers are large warehouses where orders are processed for shipping. Delivery Centers are sorting stations where orders are sorted by pin code for final delivery. The growth of FCs and DCs indicates the significant investments e-tailers are making in fortifying their back-end processes. Broadly, there are 2 modes of fulfilment for an order- one where seller fulfils their order through their own warehouse, and other where the fulfilment is done by e-tailer.

O2D (Order to Delivery) is typically broken down into O2S (Order to Shipment) and S2D (Shipment to Delivery). Bringing down O2S entails investment and innovations in first mile logistics infrastructure like availability of inventory in warehouses close to customer, ability to ship products as soon as order flows in and multiple pick up times from warehouse.

They have also developed sophisticated algorithms which assign a particular shipment to in-house or a particular 3PL partner. There are largely two different types of 3PL partners- New Age companies (like Delhivery), and traditional 3PL companies (like Gati and Bluedart). While New Age companies typically have a lower cost structure, traditional companies have a wider reach due to established routes in far flung areas. E-commerce companies have been reducing their dependence on 3PL by increasing the reach of their captive arms and creating logistics capabilities in-house. Source: RedSeer IP 82

  98. 98. 92 Indian retail market was estimated to be ~670 mn$ in 2017 growing with a CAGR of 17-18%. E-tailing accounts for <3% of the total retail market. Despite the growth in e-tailing, industry stalwarts are convinced that even in a mature stage, at-least 70% of entire retail market will remain offline. Since offline retail is expected to remain a sizeable portion of retail market, e-tailers are coming up with business models to grab market share in the organized offline retail. One such example is O2O model launched by PayTM where a customer can browse a shop’ catalog on their smartphone using QR code, and pay online. This model has been fairly successful in China where customers purchase even offline through T-mall, which in turn provides retailers with customer insights as well as help them personalize customer’s shopping experience and promotions/ offers.
