Their online marketplace provides a platform for mostly business buyers, to discover products and services and contact the suppliers of such business products and services. IndiaMART had an aggregate of 325.8 million and 552.6 million visits in fiscal 2017 and 2018, respectively, of which 204.8 million and 396.9 million comprised mobile traffic, or 63% and 72% of total traffic, respectively.

According to the Restated Financial Statements,

According to KPMG, the mobile internet has been increasingly contributing to digital media advertising spends increasing from 53% in 2015 to 78% in 2017. Further, according to KPMG, mobile internet is considered to be the primary driver for overall internet growth, with mobile revenue projected to increase from Rs 1,351 billion in fiscal 2018 to Rs 2,489 billion in fiscal 2022. The mobile website and app that they developed are capable of handling the dynamic needs of their buyers and suppliers while remaining reliable, secure and scalable.

Their mobile website and app together accounted for 72% of total traffic to IndiaMART as of March 31, 2018, compared to 63% as of March 31, 2017.

IndiaMART InterMESH Limited – Company Overview

They refer to sellers of products and services listed on their IndiaMART marketplace as “suppliers”, and suppliers that subscribe to paid services on IndiaMART as “paying subscription suppliers”. They refer to each visitor to IndiaMART, including, among others, each separate visitor from the same business entity or establishment, for whom they obtain basic identifying and contact information as their “registered buyer”. As of March 31, 2018, they had 59.81 million registered buyers, and they had 4.72 million supplier storefronts in India.

IndiaMART provides a robust two-way discovery marketplace connecting buyers and suppliers. Buyers locate suppliers on their marketplace, including both Indian small and medium enterprises, or “SMEs”, and large corporates, by viewing a webpage containing the supplier’s product and service listings, or a “supplier storefront”, or by posting requests for quotes called “RFQs” or “BuyLeads”. Their marketplace offerings from which buyers can search for and view product and service listings cover a wide range of industries spread across India, rather than relying on a single target industry or type of geography. As of March 31, 2018, they had organized their listings across 52 industries.
