Last year, Alibaba raised $1.7 billion via IPO and plans to use ~60% of the fund raised for strategic acquisitions and global expansion – apart from India, the company is also making inroads into Philipines, Thailand, Vietnam etc – i.e. emerging markets, which aren’t very structured but has huge upside potential.

Alibaba currently has ~400K Indian suppliers and is targeting the 8 mn Indian SMEs that account for nearly 40% of the country’s industrial output.

According to industry estimates three million SMEs are engaged in B2B trade and around a million are in the export business. With this partnership, Alibaba.com is expecting to double its Indian membership base in the near future.

Other players in this market include companies like IndiaMart and TradeIndia.
