E-commerce requires more webshops to grow
Hungarian e-commerce is growing rapidly and is currently the 53rd largest e-commerce market globally, but there is still room for improvement compared to the EU average, writes profitline.hu.
The Czech and Polish examples show that the Hungarian market could handle 2-3 times as many webshops.
In 2020, 66% of the Hungarian population bought online at least once, a forward-looking figure.
This represents an increase of 23% over the last five years.
Thus, Hungarian online commerce is facing a significant breakthrough, as consumers are increasingly buying online, but this requires a sufficient number and quality of local webshops.
