China is by far the biggest e-commerce market in the world as seen in figures from the Statista Digital Market Outlook. Last year, e-commerce sales in the country stood at $1.3 trillion and that number is projected to increase to almost $2 trillion by 2025. This would mean that in 4 years, almost every second e-commerce dollar could be spent in China.

Revenues generated in China make up the majority of the Asian market. Yet, other markets on the continent are already growing at a faster rate than the Chinese market. Chinese growth remains above the world average, however.
