E-commerce in Nigeria

This is e-commerce data for Nigeria. You can find the poulation, internet users, internet penetration here as well as the localised domain extension, official language and other statistics to help build an overall picture of the general online economics of Nigeria.

Nigeria has one of the strongest middle class markets in Africa. This means more people with Internet enabled devices and also more people with expendable income.

Growth in the country has started to pick up. It is no secret that the international community has its reservations when buying from or selling to Nigeria. This is unfortunate as it stunts the growth of Nigerian entrepreneurs and cuts off a country of almost 175 million people, which also has a rapidly increasing middle class.

It was estimated that in 2014 there were approximately 55 million Internet users in Nigeria, 30 million of which buyer goods online. The ecommerce market in Nigeria was reportedly worth $3 billion in 2013.
