Snapdeal Limited IPO Company Profile :
Snapdeal offers an e-commerce platform for value-seeking yet aspirational users that can be conveniently accessed on their mobile phones through the application or through the mobile-optimized website of the company. The sellers on the platform offer quality merchandise that is based on the latest trends and are affordably priced. Snapdeal’s platform hosts a wide selection of value merchandise across categories, such as fashion; home and general merchandise; beauty and personal care; and others. Snapdeal was India’s largest pure-play value e-commerce platform, in terms of revenue for the Financial Year 2020. Further, with over 200 million app installations on Google Play Store, Snapdeal is the most installed pure-play value e-commerce application and one of the top four online lifestyle shopping destinations in terms of total app installations in India, as of August 31, 2021.
The value lifestyle e-commerce market (“value e-commerce”) in India is highly under-penetrated, with only 8% of trade conducted online (compared to 27% for the premium segment of lifestyle retail). RedSeer Research estimates that the value of the e-commerce opportunity in India may reach US$ 39.4 billion in size by Financial Year 2026 from US$7.4 billion in Financial Year 2021, growing at a CAGR of 39%. This will be driven by a projected increase in the online shopper base from an estimated 140 to 160million in the Financial Year 2021 to up to 350million in the Financial Year 2026.
Snapdeal has a strong focus on catering to the demand arising from users in Tier 2+ cities of India. For the six months that ended September 30, 2021, 13.07%, 14.45%, and 72.48% of the company’s shipped units were purchased by buyers in metro cities, Tier 1 cities, and Tier 2+ cities, respectively. With the increase in internet penetration in India, the company believes that users who currently buy from unorganized offline stores may be inclined to migrate to organized, “aspirational” and quality-focused platforms such as snapdeal which provide easy and efficient access to expanded selections of good quality, relevance and affordable prices.

Online and offline competitors may offer goods and services that the company does not offer. In addition, competitors may innovate faster and more efficiently, and new technologies may increase competitive pressures by enabling competitors to offer more efficient or lower-cost services or offer products directly to users.
