Disrupting Ecommerce: The changing face of retail, and how to trade DTC

For every DTC unicorn attracting private investors and raising venture capital, there are many more public DTC brands that manufacture, market, sell and ship their own products. While their primary objective will be to sell products directly to their customers, some will use online retail marketplaces like Amazon [AMZN] to drive additional sales and to widen distribution.
Indeed, accessing ecommerce has never been easier or more popular. According to Grand View Research, the global B2C ecommerce market is expected to be worth $6.2tn by 2027, growing at an annual compound growth rate of 7.9%.
Global lockdowns have exacerbated the speed and rate of DTC brand exposure. Take online pet product specialist Chewy [CHWY]. It added 1.6 million new active customers in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, which ended 3 May, taking the total number to 15 million. Initial orders were up 11%, and new customers were adding more to their cart than pre-pandemic consumers. Overall, sales were up 46% year-over-year.
As we come out the other side of the pandemic, DTC businesses may look like attractive opportunities for FMCG players [like Unilever] that are wanting to diversify their route to market and reduce their reliance on brick-and-mortar retailers.
