There is a very high overhead cost in offline businesses. The retailers cannot afford to sell the products at a low cost because all recurring expenses are very high. Most of the things in Ecommerce are automatic. Costs incurred in everything from inventory, customer details, payment details to product selection and management of customers’ interests are lower than traditional commerce expenses. The main reason for the growth of internet users and social media is E-commerce.
From a merchant perspective if he needs to expand the business to reach more people in the offline method he has to do more physical effort which increases the cost. Whereas with an eCommerce business, a single investment in one website or mobile application can cater to multiple markets.
All advertisements like solid prints, news and televisions are expensive and don’t give the vendor clear performance. Online Ads proved to be effective and cost less than traditional Ads. Its easier to monitor as a detailed optimization.
Technology is evolving so fast that, what was there a year ago almost seems outdated in couple of years.
5G is soon going to get rolled out across major cities and countries across globe. The amount of speed and volume of data which can be transferred through the network is going to increase drastically. As much as it speeds up existing networks and websites access it will open up doors for another set of devices and communication protocols which is enabled by the new spectrum of data transfer.

1 – Improving existing capabilities and services in terms of speed, quality, accuracy etc
2 – Providing facilities and services which were not doable before but do able with the use of new technologies
3 – Protecting or providing services against the Pitfalls of the technology in various methods.

Connected homes enables interconnection and operability of various devices, services and apps, ranging from communications and entertainment to healthcare, security and home automation. This is one segment where we can expect a lot of devices to be introduced.
