The report also states that India’s internet economy was in the range of USD 155-175 billion in 2022. The primary factor responsible for this growth is the e-commerce vertical.
This growth will be a result of B2C e-commerce, B2B e-commerce, software-as-a-service providers, and online media led by over-the-top players. B2C is expected to grow from USD 60-65 billion in 2022 to 5-6 times USD 350-380 billion by 2030.
