Module 5 Case Study on Amazon

ABOUT THE CASE: Amazons global expansion from 1998 to 2020, started with an investment in the United Kingdom and Germany and ended with an investment in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In 2019, as one of the world’s largest e-commerce companies, Amazon had a 15.1 percent share of the worldwide e-commerce market with operations in 16 countries, including both developed and emerging markets. However, the company was showing unbalanced performance across countries. For example, in 2019, Amazon was the market leader in the United Kingdom (23.3 percent market share) and Germany (48.3 percent market share), while it only held 0.2 percent of the Chinese online retailing market, far behind the market leader who had a 42.7 percent market share, and it held only 1 percent market share in Brazil with the market leader having 23.2 percent. Amazon faced critical challenges in developing its future international strategies. Should it continue its global expansion into new markets? What should the company do with less successful markets such as China and Brazil? Also, how should Amazon deal with the ramifications of an unexpected global pandemic event in its international strategy?
