Foreign e-comerce firms accept losses in VN


With all the ingredients for a thriving e-commerce economy – a young population, rising disposable incomes and growing internet and mobile adoption – the Vietnamese e-commerce market is expected to maintain an annual growth rate of 25 per cent to reach US$10 billion in the next four years. However, the Vietnamese e-commerce market is still in an early stage of development, so it poses major challenges to players. Many foreign giants have invested in Viet Nam’s leading e-commerce platforms even as they incur big losses, as they continue to see the long-term potential of the country’s rapidly expanding online shopping sector. Despite a loss of VND164 billion (US$7.1 million) in 2016 and more than VND600 billion last year, Shopee has continously received more than VND1.2 trillion in investment from its parent company, Singapore’s Sea Limited (Sea), in the first half of this year. Meanwhile, after suffering a loss of some VND600 billion in 2017, Tiki got additional investment of some US$50 million from China’s second largest e-commerce group JD.com and some other investors early this year.
