The Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (DE) revealed that Thai e-Commerce grew the most in ASEAN with changes in consumer behaviour in 2018, estimating that the value would shoot up to 3.2 trillion baht.

The number of Internet users in Thailand has grown 4 times over the past 10 years, and many Thai-International platforms have grown to support the number of online shoppers, along with increasing confidence in e-Payment and faster logistics and delivery services.

Thailand leads the ecommerce ranking value in Asean

Service providers have chosen to use Big Data to analyse the behaviour and needs of consumers, while AI is being used to develop the quality of the product and services through uses of Chatbots.

Trends show that growth will continue with the arrival of 5G, creating new innovations that will lift up the quality of life for consumers.

Mrs. Surangkana Wayuparp, the Executive Director and CEO of Electronic Transactions Development Agency (Public Organization) or ETDA, Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (DE) revealed that the results of surveys that value of e-Commerce in Thailand has grown consistently between 8-10% per year. ETDA has been collecting these statistics since 2014.

Thailand 10 years challenge

From 16 to 45 millions Internet users in 10 years

When comparing the number of Internet users over the past 10 years, there were only 16.1 million Internet users in 2008; latest information revealed that in 2017, there were 45.2 million users.

Thai e-Commerce is to develop even further because, statistically, Thailand has over 45 million Internet users (in 2018), 124.8 million mobile subscribers (2019), 44 million people using LINE messenger (2019), 52 million Facebook users (2019), and there is a trend that points to the value of e-Commerce in Thailand reaching up to 3.2 trillion baht (2019)

This reflects the change in consumer behaviour that has come as a result of the changes in technology and communication devices, as well as the reduction of the price of these devices and services, which has resulted in more people having more online access.

This has resulted in the e-Commerce market of Thailand growing as well, including increasing numbers of both buyers and online sellers, which is also in line with the growth of platforms by Thai and international businesses.
