Ecommerce Potential in Vietnam 

Google, Temasek and Bain identify in their multi-year research report e-Conomy SEA 2020 excellent growth opportunities in the Internet-economy in Southeast Asia, and in Vietnam in particular, where users have turned to the Internet for solutions to challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. The research found that “41% of all digital service consumers were new (higher than the SEA average), with 94% of these new consumers intending to continue their behavior post-pandemic”, and that “The Vietnamese, specifically, were spending 3.1 hours online (for personal use) pre-COVID-19, which spiked to 4.2 hours at the height of national social distancing, and now rests at 3.5 hours per day.”  

It also highlights and projects that by 2025, the overall e-Conomy will likely reach US $52B in value, re-accelerating to ~29% CAGR.”
