Philippines E-Commerce Logistics Market

Philippines E-Commerce Logistics Market Overview and Size

The Filipino E-commerce industry has witnessed a moderate rise over the past 5-6 years with an increase in internet penetration into the country. Escalation in the number of smartphones in the country, fast-growing middle-class population, high consumer confidence, changing consumer preferences, etc. has augmented the growth of e-commerce leading to surging demand for e-commerce logistics as well in the country. Manila and some other cities including Central Quezon City, Cebu, and Davao have emerged as the key hub for demand and supply of e-commerce logistics The COVID-19 pandemic has also pushed the demand in the market as the need for social distancing have forced people to rely on online shopping. The growth in E-commerce orders for logistics has been majorly driven by an increase in internet affinity and demand for value-added services.

Philippines E-Commerce Logistics Market Segmentations

By Channel: In terms of the total number of shipments, 3PL players have captured the majority of the market share as big marketplaces like Lazada and Shopee are also dependent on these players for the last mile deliveries in 2020. International e-commerce companies prefer to outsource logistics to 3PL companies to avoid the hustle of establishing their own operations.

By Delivery Period: 1-3 day delivery has dominated the market in terms of the number of orders owing to the increasing focus of the companies on providing better services coupled with increasing customer needs for better service. Moreover, the majority of the orders are placed from the Luzon area (mainly Metro Manila), where the products can be delivered within this time duration.

By Type of Products: Consumer electronics and fashion & accessories have dominated the online retail sector in the Philippines in 2020. Beauty and personal care is the third leading e-commerce category in the Philippines.

E-Commerce Warehousing Sector in the Philippines:

The warehousing market in the Philippines is still in the growing phase where the majority of the domestic companies are operating through their own in-house operations and are less focused on out-sourcing it to 3PL companies.

E-Commerce warehousing has captured ~6% of the overall warehousing space in the Philippines. The rise of e-commerce within the country has given a major boost to the warehousing market. For instance, Lazada plans to add warehouses in the country in the next 3-5 years. Most of the e-commerce logistics players have their own warehousing space in order to manage all the operations by themselves. E-commerce companies in the Philippines generally prefer to own their warehouses in the top-tier cities & outsource the warehousing requirements to e-com logistics companies in provincial areas. For last-mile hubs, companies either set up their own branches or partner with the existing malls or retail outlets as a pickup and drop facility.

Competitive Landscape of Philippines E-Commerce Logistics Market:

The competition in the e-commerce logistics space in the Philippines is highly concentrated whereby major 4-5 companies hold the majority of the share in the market. The major e-commerce logistics companies include LEL Express, J&T Express, NinjaVan, Lalamove, Entrego, GoGo Xpress, LBC Express, Shopee Xpress, 2GO Xpress, Air21, JRS Express, and few others. The e-commerce market is also highly fragmented as the majority of the market share is composed of the top 3-4 players. Fleet size, number of orders, clientele, number of delivery centers, value-added services, price, and delivery time are the key competing parameters for the e-commerce logistics providers.

Philippines E-Commerce Logistics Market Future Outlook and Projections

Over the forecast period, the Philippines E-commerce logistics market is expected to drive up the demand because of the expected surge in internet penetration, especially its exposure to the youth. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been a shift from offline sales to online sales, which is expected to ensure substantial growth in the future as well.
