Global - Business Users - B2B Market Statistics


Archived report: This report was archived in August 2006 and has not been updated. Business-to-Business (B2B) commerce comprises the majority of online transactions, and is forecast to experience spectacular growth over the coming years, despite a lack of suitable and sufficient infrastructure in most countries, and a reluctance of most marketers to adopt more appropriate business models. However, the rapid growth in broadband access around the world has allowed the continued growth of B2B. This report presents statistics and growth forecasts.
