In the previous article, we have introduced a few key insights and updates about the Singaporean E-Commerce market. In this article, let’s discover another rapidly growing E-Commerce market of a nearby Southeast Asian country - Thailand. Thailand's E-Commerce landscape is evolving rapidly, driven by changing consumer behavior and advancements in technology. According to Bangkok Post, Thailand's E-Commerce market is projected to reach nearly 700 billion baht (~20 million USD) in 2024, surpassing the anticipated 634 billion baht (~18 million USD) in 2023. Join us as we delve into the latest trends and uncover the potential of Thailand's thriving E-Commerce landscape in this article.

  1. Increasing Online Shopping Adoption

According to Nielsen, a staggering 45% of Thai consumers have expressed their intention to increase their online shopping activities in 2024. This shift in consumer behavior presents a tremendous opportunity for businesses to tap into a growing customer base.

  1. Dominance of Foreign Operators

Foreign E-Commerce operators continue to dominate Thailand's market. Bangkok Post reports that China and the US combined account for 70% of global retail E-Commerce revenue. For example, to ensure faster delivery between China and Thailand, E-Commerce merchants from China have established suburban warehouses and wholesale delivery services. This dominance presents an opportunity for foreign merchants to enter Thailand's market and establish a strong presence.

  1. Adoption of Popular Marketing Strategies

To succeed in the Thai E-Commerce landscape, businesses need to leverage popular marketing strategies. Examples include but not limited to: 

  • Live Commerce: Products are showcased via live streaming, which allows customers to interact with the brand in real-time. For instance, China's live commerce model contributes to 20% of online sales. 
  • Key Opinion Leader (KOL) / Influencer Commerce: KOLs / Influencers endorse and promote products to their followers on certain social media channels.
  • Affiliate Commerce: Affiliates promote another person’s / company’s products, and earn a designated profit from each sale they make.

In 2024, businesses in Thailand are increasingly turning to E-Commerce automation and artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline operations and enhance customer experiences. Automation tools can help manage inventory, process orders, and improve overall efficiency.
