Market Dynamics


Growing disposable income and urbanization

The growing disposable income and urbanization are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), personal income climbed 0.3% in June 2023. Additionally, by 2050, 68% of the global population is expected to reside in urban areas. According to the anticipation, as a result of urbanization, another 2.5 billion people could live in urban areas by 2050, which is the gradual movement of people from rural to urban areas. Such cases of urbanization and rising disposable income are observed to boost the overall expansion of e-commerce industry, especially in developing countries. Thereby, the element will act as a driver for the market.

Growing cross-border e-commerce

Cross-border e-commerce has gained significant traction in various regions such as APAC, with consumers increasingly buying products from international online retailers. This trend requires complex cross-border logistics and custom clearance solutions. For instance, cross-border trade is anticipated to represent 22% of physical goods shipments made through e-commerce in 2022. Thereby, driving the market growth over the forecast period.


Complexity in last-mile delivery

The last mile of delivery is often the most expensive and challenging part of the logistics process. Navigating congested urban areas, managing multiple delivery attempts, and accommodating customer preferences for delivery times can be logistically complex and costly. Thus, this is expected to hamper the market growth over the projected timeframe.

Regulatory and custom issues

Cross-border e-commerce logistics can be hampered by complex customs regulations, tariffs, and trade restrictions. E-commerce companies need to navigate a web of regulations when shipping products internationally, which can lead to delays and increased costs. Thereby, the element is observed to act as a major restraint for the market.


Growing investments in the global e-commerce sector

The growing investment in the e-commerce logistics industry is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in March 2023, to better serve its retail clients in Spain, Portugal, and France, DB Schenker launched operations at one of the biggest automated e-commerce facilities. With 150 new hires working in the 50,000 m2 modern warehouse in Guadalajara, more than 200 robots, and a better packing system, operations have begun.

The system offers creative pick-and-pack options for quick and flexible online order fulfilment as well as effective return handling.

Technological advancements

The adoption of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT can enhance logistics operations. Opportunities exist for logistics companies to develop and implement innovative solutions for route optimization, real-time tracking, and warehouse automation. For instance, in July 2023, the debut of JD.com's large language model (LLM), a technology used to train chatbots like ChatGPT, by the dominant Chinese e-commerce company is anticipated to intensify attempts by the nation's Big Tech giants to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into numerous industrial applications.
