Thailand Market

In the wave of cross-border e-commerce sweeping Southeast Asia, Thailand is considered one of the most promising markets in this region, mainly due to its sizable young consumer base and growing middle class population. According to the “Thailand – Country Commercial Guide” released by the U.S. Department of Commerce International Trade Administration in January 2024, Thailand has approximately 43.5 million e-commerce users, with 17-36 year-olds being the main force, accounting for 62% of Thailand’s e-commerce market. The influx of more young users has played a significant role in driving e-commerce sales in Thailand. In addition, affluent Thai online shoppers have strong brand awareness, and as this group continues to grow, it is bound to inject new vitality and business opportunities into the Thai e-commerce market.

The cross-border e-commerce market in Thailand is vibrant. According to the “Thailand – Country Commercial Guide,” cross-border e-commerce accounts for 30% of the entire Thai e-commerce market, and nearly half of online shoppers have experience shopping on cross-border e-commerce platforms. In February 2024, the total sales revenue of the two main platforms Shopee and Lazada in Thailand reached approximately 762 million.


Platform Performance: Shopee’s sales are higher than Lazada’s. In February 2024, Shopee’s sales in the Thai market were 650 million, ranking fourth among the six Southeast Asian countries. Lazada’s sales revenue reached 110 million, also ranking fourth among the six countries. Keep an eye on TMO as we continue to observe the trends in the entire Thai e-commerce market this year.

In terms of categories, on the Shopee platform, electronic products and accessories occupy the top spot with a market share of 31.5%, followed by clothing and fashion, and health and beauty, with market shares of 15.4% and 14.3% respectively. On the Lazada platform, the most popular category among consumers is home and living, accounting for 19.1% of sales, followed by health and beauty (14.9%) and women’s fashion and accessories (11.0%).

With regards to best-selling products:

  • In the electronic products and accessories category on the Shopee platform, smartphones are still the most popular electronic products. Thai consumers have a high brand preference, with Apple smartphones occupying three out of the top five spots in the sales rankings. It is worth noting that the sales revenue of home appliances accounted for around 40% market share, which was almost the same as that of electronic products and accessories. Chinese brands TCL and Hisense have entered the top five in the sales rankings. In the health and beauty category, weight management products are the best-selling products.
