AgVoice | Some thoughts about where the Digital space in India, is going, in 2012

For some reason, December gets your mind working in this manner. Thinking about what went by, thinking about what's coming up. Though this is something you can potentially do any time of the year, there are these December triggers.

You'll take this kind of a stock for yourself, and then perhaps larger issues, like the world at large!!

So I got afflicted too. And rather than look backward (more of an analysis and research task), I choose to look ahead. Crystal ball gazing on where the digital space in India is going, in 2012.

1. E-commerce or more specifically, online retail of goods, will continue to show fabulous growth: the hockey stick curve has started, perhaps 12 months back. This will continue on a sharp, upward trajectory, right through 2012. The growth is on account of various factors:

Internet user base growth

Mobile penetration

COD and other easy payment options
