KUALA LUMPUR: The rapid growth of the e-commerce market in Malaysia in 2017 spurred the expansion of the online shopping sphere.

It also encouraged local businesses to embrace omni-channel retailing said 11street – Malaysia’s second largest online marketplace.

Chief Executive Officer of 11street, Hoseok Kim said: “The e-commerce industry in Malaysia has done well, in which we see a penetration rate of 2.5%, and given the broadened acceptance of e-commerce, the time has come for e-marketplaces to make online shopping a better and more seamless experience for consumers.

“Once the right infrastructures are in place, we expect to see Malaysia accelerating its e-commerce penetration, with a rate of 4% to 5% in 2018 – a figure that doubles that in 2015,” Kim added.
