Alessandro Casartelli, Executive Director at GP Bullhound, said: “This report investigates the huge growth that direct-to-consumer businesses saw in the last decade as part of the e-commerce boom, and their increasing shift towards selling exclusively through third-party marketplaces. Additionally, focused and niche marketplaces are becoming more prevalent, with cutting-edge shopping experiences tailored to high-value and hard-to-find specialised products. Finally, as digital transformation and AI continue to dominate the business landscape, conversational commerce tools are set to boost customer service and sales as they enable businesses to increase conversion and deliver a better customer experience.”
