New Frontiers Of Intelligence
GMIC Bangalore: India’s largest mobile conference
India is one of the world’s fastest growing internet markets. India’s online population is tipped to reach 450 million-465 million people by June 2017, according to a report co-authored by the Internet and Mobile Association of India, thereby widening the audience of e-commerce customers. China and the U.S. currently dominate global e-commerce spending, but the value of online sales in India is predicted to rise to $48 billion by 2020, analyst firm Forrester has forecast.
India is top ten in global GDP, and top 2 in population. The economy’s strength lies in a limited dependence on exports, high saving rates, favorable demographics, and a rising middle class. India recently overtook China as the fastest growing large economy.’
The international ecommerce companies are widely thought to have gained ground on India’s local e-commerce players since they landed in the country about four years ago. These players are pledged to invest billions to grow their India business, and there could yet be more money soon.
GMIC Bangalore 2017 is a premier opportunity to expand your companies reach and solidify its position in Asia. Join us in Bangalore to promote your brand, connect with leading developers, learn about new trends and innovations , and network with international media.
