Major Things to Keep in Mind While Subscribing:
IndiaMART InterMESH is India’s largest online B2B marketplace for business products and services and holds about 60% of the market share.
- With its growing number of registered buyers, climbing up to 55 lakh, the growing penetration of internet and online marketing has given IndiaMart an upperhand and thus can help companies to reach out to a larger customer base.
- It is the 1st company to test the IPO market. Despite this fact, IndiaMart hasn’t turned its heavy monetization into full benefit, as it just gained this profit last year.
- The entry of large players like Google, could possibly pose a threat for small and medium companies’ growth.
- In past some years, new companies have entered this business, like Ninjacart, Power2SME. These new ventures can give a strong competition to IndiaMart.
- The path taken by IndiaMart here should be thoroughly looked into. Considering growth, accompanied with dominant market position and expected benefits, such technological and scalable business model companies could enhance the future market potential and improve the management to work towards achieving the potential
