Amazon’s main competitor is still Walmart. Its acquisition of a majority stake in Flipkart, India’s leading e-commerce company, remains a significant step and one of the notable buyouts in the Indian e-commerce market. Flipkart recently received a new investment from the company. Walmart took part in Flipkart’s $3.6 billion funding round. GIC, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, and SoftBank Vision Fund 2 are among the other investors who contributed to the funding.
Apart from that, Walmart’s e-commerce prospects in India are being fueled by Flipkart’s rising user and seller base, as well as many customer-friendly payment alternatives and huge discounts. We’ve seen that Flipkart and Amazon are competing head-to-head in India. As a result, Walmart’s rising investments in Flipkart represent a threat to Amazon’s moat.
