E-commerce Fulfillment Market in the United States

  • According to the Grand View Research report, the global e-commerce fulfillment services market size was $69.68 billion in 2019.
  • Since there was no information on the market share or size of United States e-commerce, we have used the market share of the U.S. 3PL industry to calculate the e-commerce fulfillment market size for the United States. According to the Grand View Research report, the global third-party logistics market size was $830.99 billion in 2019. The market size of the 3PL industry in the United States was valued at $172.2 billion in 2017 and was estimated to reach $201.97 billion in 2019. Therefore, the market share of third-party logistics of the United States is (201.97/830.99)*100 = 24.3%. Due to limited information on the e-commerce fulfillment sector market for the U.S., we have assumed that the market share of third-party logistics and e-commerce fulfillment services are similar types of service providers. Therefore, the e-commerce fulfillment market size of the United States is $16.93 billion in 2019 ($69.68 billion x 24.3%).

Using the calculated values for the 3PL market, the e-commerce fulfillment market size of the United States was calculated for the year 2019 and 2025.
