According to Forrester Research, forecasted revenues for B2B e-commerce sales will total $780 Billion in 2015, which is more than double the $334 billion estimated for all direct-to-consumer retail sales online. Moreover, B2B online sales are forecast to grow at a rate of 64 percent and top $1.1 trillion by 2020, at which time online sales will represent 12 percent of all B2B revenues.1

"Despite the fact that the B2B market is twice the size of B2C and growing rapidly, B2B companies still lag far behind their B2C brethren in terms of their level of digital maturity and the quality of customer experience they offer," wrote Forrester Analysts Andy Hoar and Peter Sheldon in a recent report."2

"B2B e-business professionals must move quickly to catch up to their B2C counterparts that set the high bar for the e-commerce experience. Now is the time for B2C merchants looking at building their B2B business to dive in and create a unified and seamless experience between the two business models," said Ken Burke, MarketLive founder and CEO.
