According to the trade association, the domestic market is likely to surpass $48 billion in FY2014-15, which would be a growth of 14% as compared to the year-ago period. “This was faster than average industry growth and was driven by e-commerce, which grew 33% year-on-year to become a $14-billion segment,” NASSCOM said.
