E-commerce sales in Singapore were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with consumers becoming prudent during the crisis. The pandemic also affected high-value purchases such as travel and accommodation further impacting e-commerce sales in 2020

Nevertheless, with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and revival of the economy, the market rebounded in 2021. In fact, e-commerce sales are estimated to grow by 18.3% in 2022 to reach US$7 billion.

Along with that, Singapore has also been taking various initiatives to drive e-commerce adoption among small businesses by offering benefits in the form of subsidies. As a part of its ‘E-Commerce Booster Package’, the government offered subsidies to retailers for opting online channels and selling products online via participating e-commerce platforms such as Lazada, Shopee and Zalora.
