For publishers, this combination of a shift in shopper behavior and growth in demand for visual content represents a significant financial opportunity. An opportunity that one can complement with existing ad revenue streams, as publishers effectively transform inspiration into purchases. Alongside this shift in consumer behavior, it was estimated that retail ecommerce sales in India will reach $23.39 billion (INR1.500 trillion) in 2016, an increase of 75.8% over 2015.

Commenting on this trend, Anmol Arora, Head, Visual Commerce Platform, ViSenze said, “In a world where online retail continues to gain market share, content driven commerce is fast becoming a crucial channel for brands to increase sales volume and acquire new customers. Failure to capture customers at moments when they’re most likely to buy falters the customer journey resulting in lost revenue.”
