According to Gartner’s recent projections, we can expect US B2B eCommerce sales to reach $3 trillion by 2027. Put another way, B2B eCommerce will make up almost a quarter of all US B2B sales. In our new guide, Why Manufacturers and Distributors Must Move Online, we explore why eCommerce is not optional anymore -it’s essential for the success of your business moving forward.
Why eCommerce and Why Now?
The COVID-19 pandemic was characterized by getting used to the new normal. And before most of us could adapt to it, newfound supply chain challenges, inflationary pressures, product and talent shortages, and a war in Ukraine disrupted the landscape once again. Today’s new normal isn’t static. Every day, we redefine what that new normal is.
On the other hand, digital technology continues to evolve, and B2B companies of all sizes and industries are doubling down on online selling. No matter what’s happening in the world, B2B buyers turn online for their research and purchasing needs. And today’s eCommerce sites are much more than just portals for making purchases. They aren’t just places for selling products. They attract and educate customers, help them reach their goals, and are instrumental in growing your business.
