- Given the significant advantages offered by omnichannel strategy, a growing number of retailers are looking to create presence in multiple channels as against restricting themselves to online or store formats.

The recent years have witnessed the disruption in the retail industry through the advent of a number of digital touchpoints, such as smart shelf technologies, self-serve tablets and interactive kiosks. The rising significance of these technologies can be seen by the fact that about 45-50% of retail sales in the US are known to be influenced by digital touchpoints. Consequently, in a retail industry impacted by increasing competition, advent of new technologies and changing consumer behavior, omnichannel retail is emerging as an effective solution for the industry to adapt and respond to the challenges. One of the major factors influencing growth in the global retail omni-channel commerce platform market is the rapid growth of e-commerce sales across the world. In both developed and developing economies, e-commerce retail is witnessing exponential growth and emerging as the preferred sales channel among customers. Growing penetration of low cost Internet services and rapid increase in sales and use of mobile devices specifically smartphones are major contributors to the growing retail sales through online channels. Since e-Commerce is regarded as one of the key channels in the omnichannel commerce ecosystem, the rapid growth of e-commerce industry has huge positive implications for the retail omni-channel commerce platform market. Several leading retailers are adopting retail omnichannel strategy to tap the e-commerce opportunity and also drive traffic and sales in physical stores. The need to offer seamless shopping experience to customers remains the major factor fueling adoption of omnichannel commerce platform among retailers.

A major challenge confronting the global omnichannel platform market is the high cost incurred in deploying omnichannel platform and installing the software.
