Transforming modes of consumption across traditional and non-traditional verticals.

Research capabilities for
E-Commerce sector

With e-commerce expanding across multiple non-traditional verticals and profoundly transforming modes of consumption, many industries are retooling the way they do business. Constant innovation, higher product selection, faster delivery speeds require a next-generation of fulfillment infrastructure and point to a customer responding to improved value propositions.

While the e-commerce sector is covered by our Internet analysts, they have collaborated with fellow research

colleagues across verticals – such as consumer and transportation – to bring together comprehensive insights into the disruption that is taking place and views on the best way to play the theme.

We host topical events such as the Annual Future of the Consumer conference and the Annual Internet & Media Bus Tour as well as Cowen’s Annual Technology, Media and Telecom conference.
