Millicom’s e-commerce business team is taking new products and services to millions of new customers and to different markets that fall outside our mobile telecommunications footprint. We are more convinced than ever about the potential for online services in Africa to grow strongly and leapfrog traditional retail.
Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country and home to 169 million people, of which 48 million have internet subscriptions as of 2013.
Its large user base means enormous potential for the e-Commerce industry. In 2011, online sales were estimated at 380 million US dollars, with the expectation that this will more than double in 2012 - fuelled by large amounts of foreign investment, a growing move toward a cashless economy, and a rapidly urbanizing middle class.
