Startups that are powering the D2C brand ecosystem in India
The onset of the pandemic compelled consumers to change their buying behaviors. To cater to these changing consumer demands, retailers are adopting an omnichannel approach. On the other hand, even though the post-pandemic world is moving towards contactless deliveries, consumers are still not willing to let go of the in-store interaction. Consequently, online shopping is redrawing the future of the e-Commerce industry to deliver enhanced customer experiences. To enable this, a multitude of forces is driving the increased adoption of the digital approach in the industry.
