Italy is the third top exporter in Europe, contributing to 8.8% of the EU’s total, with a value of $461.5 billion. It has close ties with many European countries, particularly the UK, and it acts as a gateway to Mediterranean and Middle East markets too.
Businesses-owners should recognise the potential within the Italian market and the lucrative opportunities there. If you plan to expand your business internationally in the future, Italy could be a good place to start. Luckily here at Whistl, we can offer reliable business solutions for all your parcel deliveries to Italy.
Italy’s Postal Statistics
The Italian postal system, managed by Poste Italiane, has undergone huge improvements in the past decade and the latest statistics from 2014 show that 90.5% of letters were delivered on time in Italy. This is an impressive number that exceeded the figures for other European countries like France, Norway and Greece.
There are 12.9 million frequent online shoppers in Italy, boasting the largest market for luxury goods in Europe. In fact, the ecommerce market was predicted to be worth €22.4 billion in 2017. This was an increase of 14% from the previous year and the market is forecasted to continue this upward trend in the coming five years. This growth could pose a key opportunity for ecommerce businesses hoping to enter the Italian market in the future, particularly in the luxury goods sector.
