In the early 2010s, the B2B eCommerce market looked a lot different than it does today. Back then, it was perfectly normal for manufacturers and distributors to rely on a patchwork of ERP systems, CPQ software, spreadsheets, and fax printouts.
As the years progressed, Amazon took over the world, and all eyes were on B2C eCommerce. But B2B digitization efforts started catching up to those of B2C companies, and the gap narrowed. Then the pandemic came along. That sealed the deal for many B2B leaders, who realized that their growth lies with digital customer-facing experiences.
A recent Mckinsey piece broke the myths of B2B eCommerce sales, while another article explored how digital omnichannel selling is not a nice-to-have, but the only way forward for B2B business.
Gartner estimates that by 2024, 15% of B2B organizations will use digital commerce platforms to support sales activities, while Forrester claims US B2B eCommerce will hit $3 trillion by 2027, driving up digital’s share of offline sales.
Digital commerce isn’t around the corner. It’s already here. Is your business ready?
