China’s e-commerce market raking in more than $2 trillion last year


The e-commerce market has been exploding in China recently, that’s no secret, but the numbers are still impressive. According to the country’s Ministry of Commerce, China’s e-commerce market managed to accumulate more than $2 trillion in transactions last year. 

According to a new report from China’s Ministry of Commerce, the Middle Kingdom’s ecommerce markets racked up RMB 13 trillion (US$2 trillion) in transactions over the course of 2014. That’s growth of 25 percent compared to 2013. Those numbers include online B2B transactions and sales from online retailers as well as the sales on ecommerce platforms like JD and Tmall. It’s a massive number to be sure, but statistics indicate that China’s ecommerce market still has the potential to grow far bigger.
