Growth Of Internet Users, Improved Internet Connections, Advances In Security, and Encryption

The internet is increasingly becoming a key tool for merchants trying to expand their services in the virtual market, driven by the rapid growth of internet users, improved internet connections, and advances in security and encryption. This has largely increased consumer confidence and dependence on home-shopping, and in-turn, inflated the growth of the market. Globally, the internet user base stood at 3.5 billion in 2017, which reached 4 billion in 2019, as per the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

In India, about 77% of urban users and 92% of rural users consider mobile as the primary device for accessing the internet, largely driven by the availability and affordability of smartphones.
