Why adopting D2C in India is the right choice for enterprise brands

D2C India is hot. With 800+ D2C brands in India by 2021, generating around $ 2 billion in combined revenue, the direct-to-consumer model has arrived with a bang. D2C has redefined the rules of the retail game and given new opportunities to digital native and phygital brands to unlock new growth opportunities. While D2C companies in India have unicorns like Licious, Mamaearth and Good Glam Group, the direct-to-consumer model also has many mid-size players that are all set to disrupt new industry verticals. Enterprise brands planning for growth beyond the tier II and III cities can leverage the D2C model to penetrate the largely untapped markets with huge demand. With 700 million internet users and 140 million online buyers base pan-India, D2C is here to stay. Brands that start early on their D2C journey can accelerate their growth and rapidly create a niche in the flourishing D2C landscape in India.
