The e-commerce market in Mexico has shown remarkable growth, creating lucrative opportunities for U.S. businesses. In 2022, the market value hit USD 26.2 billion, a 23% increase from the previous year, and is expected to surge to USD 70.4 billion by 2027. This places Mexico among the top global players in e-commerce retail growth, with a significant user base of 63 million by the end of 2022, with over half being women.


This growth trajectory is fueled by several factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic's push toward digital adoption and a notable increase in internet literacy. The Mexican e-commerce landscape is characterized by its diverse popular product categories, ranging from food and groceries to fashion and electronics, indicating a broad customer trust in online shopping.


Moreover, the payment landscape in Mexico is diverse, with a preference for debit and credit cards, alongside a notable presence of cash and installment purchases without a card. Mobile commerce (M-commerce) is especially dominant, with 98% of online purchases made through smartphones, emphasizing the importance of mobile-friendly business platforms.


Cross-border e-commerce is thriving, with 80% of Mexican online shoppers purchasing from international retailers, primarily from the United States and China. Social media platforms, including Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and TikTok, play a crucial role in influencing purchasing decisions, making them key channels for businesses to engage with potential customers.
