CHICAGO, Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet Retailer, which offers e-commerce business intelligence through print and digital channels, introduces the 2016 Global 1000, the only comprehensive report and database that profiles, ranks and analyzes the world's 1,000 largest e-retailers. Those 1,000 companies together sold $610 billion online last year, accounting for 35% of global e-commerce revenue.
The 2016 Global 1000 also ranks and reports the world's 18 largest online marketplaces by the value of goods sold on their sites and documents their growth. Those shopping portals, which process web sales for millions of e-retailers around the world, include websites operated by Amazon, Alibaba, eBay, Rakuten and JD.com. Collectively they generated $908 billion in online revenue last year, or roughly 40% of the global e-commerce market. Their sales, combined with the annual revenue of the world's top 1,000 e-retailers, means the rankings and data in 2016 Global 1000 cover 75% of global e-commerce.
