2 E-Commerce IPOs That Doubled in 2021

The e-commerce industry has gained a lot of momentum due to the pandemic that shuttered brick-and-mortar stores. During the height of the pandemic in 2020, e-commerce as a share of total retail sales in the United States and China…

multiplied by 3.3 times and 1.6 times, respectively.

The momentum seems to have not dampened in 2021. The share of e-commerce of total retail sales in the third quarter in the United States surged 11.3% from pre-pandemic levels. Moreover, the industry is anticipated to hold onto its pandemic-fueled heightened sales due to consumers’ sticky behavior toward hybrid shopping patterns. The global e-commerce sales are expected to grow 16.8% to $4.92 trillion in 2021 and are estimated to grow a further 12.7% in 2022.

The industry tailwinds should bode well for the newly listed e-commerce stocks Global-e Online Ltd. (GLBE – Get Rating) and Jowell Global Ltd. (JWEL – Get Rating). These stocks have doubled since they went public this year.
