Market Update: Digital Marketing & E-commerce Q1 2022
The 2022 Digital Marketing & E-commerce first quarter opened the year with a YoY Q1 drop of 23.6% in deal count. The quarter also started with a significant drop of 67.4% in capital raised which correlates to the global rise in interest rates to fight against inflationary pressures. Additionally, the Russian-Ukrainian war has canceled or postponed transactions that had geographical and client exposure, outsourcing capabilities, or political/economical involvement in the region.
Digitalization is strong and e-commerce remains a top priority in the business strategies of large local and global retailers pushing for a seamless omnichannel experience for its customers. AI, Data Analytics, Customer Experience, and Automation are key verticals that are being exploited to maximize return.
