Amazon India has reportedly onboarded over 100,000 Indian entrepreneurs on their e-commerce exports platform called Global Selling, representing a 30% growth since January 2020. Primarily, many of these sellers were found to be first-generation entrepreneurs of emerging brands from non-metropolitan areas.

Abhijit Kamra, the Global Trade Director at Amazon India, stated that this program has enabled over 100,000 exporters to amass a total surpass of USD 3 billion in exports, demonstrating the global demand for Indian-made products.

It is worth noting that the initiative, which began in 2015 with only 100 exporters, is now showcasing nearly 140 million Indian products in over 200 countries. The corporation is now planning to assist Indian exporters in accessing customers all over the world via 17 international websites and marketplaces.

In this context, Kamra further added that the online retailer seeks to develop its e-commerce business to USD 10 billion by the end of 2025 and contribute to the exports from India.

Amazon has been emphasizing developing the right infrastructure since the program's inception to cater to all sizes of online exports from India. To accelerate the growth of e-commerce, it even implemented a series of workshops and on-site events.

In addition, it has been collaborating with many industry peers, authorities, and trade associations to completely realize the potential of this scheme. It is also worth mentioning that the retailing behemoth has recently initiated the regional language experience for sellers on a Global Setting in the U.S. marketplace to support Indian exporters living abroad with their businesses.

Even Walmart, the world's biggest retailer, which has been working with Indian exporters for more than 20 years, has invited several local sellers to join Walmart Marketplace, a community that serves more than 120 million US customers each month. To put it concisely, Walmart has set an ambitious target of USD 10 billion in Indian exports by the end of 2027.
