    • Fulfillment services penetration is high outside Europe and North America owing to e-commerce
    • APAC is witnessing an increase in adoption owing to the presence of regional/global suppliers with well-established fulfillment centers and strong regional footprints. Global buyers are also looking at consolidating supply bases. 
    • Rising internet penetration and lucrative growth potential offered by relatively untapped markets in APAC are primarily influencing the fulfillment industry trends in the region. Moreover, China, Japan, and South Korea come under the leading 10 exporters of merchandise and make up for a bigger slice of the global e-commerce sales.
    • The Middle East and LATAM have low adoption due to the delivery challenges because of inadequate infrastructure and poor connectivity

    Supply Trends 

    • Supplier Consolidation:The majority of global buyers are consolidating the supply base by reducing the number of 3PLs they use
    • Innovative Service Offerings:Suppliers are coming up with new contract models and service options for buyers
    • Use of Big Data in the Supply Chain: Supply chain managers and IT service providers are exploring and implementing the use of data analytics for business intelligence to improve and leverage the overall supply chain.

    Global Fulfilment Services Market Overview 

    • E-commerce is driving fulfillment spending as online purchasing and delivery have increased rapidly.
    • Big spenders such as retail, consumer packaged goods (CPG) and food and beverages (F&B) are consolidating their spending to increase their negotiation power based on the volume of business.
    • Most buyers have consolidated their fulfilment services requirements with top suppliers such as DB Schenker, Kuehne + Nagel and UPS. Thus, the competition is primarily driven by market followers that do not have long-term contracts with top suppliers and are open to working with other suppliers.
    • Global fulfilment agencies with established presences have higher supplier power, but the price points of local agencies and competition in the emerging market pegs the supplier power at a medium level.
    • The competition in the global fulfillment industry is primarily driven by acquisition and expansion in emerging markets. Third-party logistics  (3PL) providers are investing in the marketing fulfillment market to establish themselves as end-to-end service providers. Few suppliers such as pick-and-pack companies are also enhancing their e-fulfilment services.
    • The threat of substitutes is low for the fulfilment logistics services as there is huge dependency on 3PL in all emerging markets.
