South Korea’s e-commerce market can be bifurcated into fashion, food & beverages, home electric appliances, household goods-motor vehicle parts, cosmetics, computer & related appliances, sports & leisure, travel services and others, in terms of product category.

In addition, sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had escalated the adoption of e-commerce as a result of rapid shift from brick-and-mortar distribution channels towards online retail stores to mitigate the risk of coronavirus infection upon human interaction, thereby propelling the overall market growth.
