Insight by Deployment

The supplier oriented segment is expected to be the most significant revenue contributor in the global industry. They provide a diverse range of products and services to a group of clients while also assisting them with their businesses.

Furthermore, customer communities, tailored products, and direct consumer interactions hold significant promise. Suppliers can access new forms of advertising and distribution channels through supplier oriented marketplaces. Without the use of intermediaries, products can be sold straight to customers.

Geographic Overview

North America accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021 of the global B2B e-commerce for the agriculture industry. The growing number of mobile devices and high internet penetration in this region is projected to fuel industry expansion. For instance, as per the World Bank, in North America, around 92% of individuals were using the internet in 2020.

The increasing use of B2B e-commerce in rural areas to supply farmers with transparent agriculture trading platforms is further driving the adoption. During the projection period, increased demand for B2B e-commerce platforms from countries such as Canada and Mexico will present growth possibilities. This is rapidly changing, as e-commerce solutions that try to overcome hurdles such as customer preferences and logistics push online groceries.

The high CAGR of the industry over the projection period is due to increased per capita expenditure on internet retailing, as well as rising government launches of agriculture applications and initiatives to benefit farmers. Another reason fueling the growth of the worldwide e-commerce of agriculture products industry is the simple availability of raw materials, inputs, and improved technologies to cultivate crops. However, over the projection period, lack of knowledge and internet accessibility in rural areas are the primary factors limiting the growth of the global industry.

Moreover, Asia Pacific is expected to witness a high CAGR over the forecast period. Because of the growing agriculture industry and technological improvements, there has been an increase in demand for B2B e-commerce platforms in the Asia Pacific emerging economies. Global companies are extending their operations in this region to expand their consumer base and geographical reach.

Organizations that use the internet to connect farmers and purchasers are gathering momentum in emerging economies, and a few have built online platforms for agriculture to sell organic e-commerce store markets straight to customers. As per the World Bank, the number of individuals using the internet in 2020 was around 69%. These initiatives are paving the road for efficient industry linkages for farmers by eliminating middlemen from the distribution network and gaining higher prices for farmers.
