Global Classified Annual Report 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 6, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--The “2018 Global Classified Annual Report” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The 2018 Global Classifieds/Marketplace Annual reviews and analyzes this evolution - and we help you in identifying the next wave(s) of disruption.

In this, our tenth annual global classifieds annual report, we provide for the first time a roundup of the world’s Top 100 classified sites by web traffic. We review the Top 25 in detail. Our metrics illustrate some surprising conclusions, with some Eastern European sites like Avito in Russia and OLX in Ukraine proving to be more efficient in reaching audiences than well-known Western European counterparts.

The Top 100 classified/marketplace sites in the world, and their Top 20 app counterparts, are an eclectic bunch.

Some still refer to themselves as startups; others, like No. 1 Craigslist, are granddaddies of the web-or, as someone once described Craigslist, the cockroach of the internet.

Some are corporate-owned; others are held by individuals or VC/PE types. Some charge for listings, others offer listings free but make their revenue on upsells and/or banner ads and/or Google AdSense ads.

Together, they tell a fascinating story of growth, change, adaptation and new technologies like artificial intelligence/machine learning, blockchain, pricing tools, smartphone photography and more. The 2018 Global Classifieds/Marketplace Annual reviews and analyzes this evolution - and we help you in identifying the next wave(s) of disruption.

In this, our tenth annual global classifieds annual report, we provide for the first time a roundup of the world’s Top 100 classified sites by web traffic. We review the Top 25 in detail. Our metrics illustrate some surprising conclusions, with some Eastern European sites like Avito in Russia and OLX in Ukraine proving to be more efficient in reaching audiences than well-known Western European counterparts.

We also spotlight the Top 20 classified/marketplace apps, including LetGo, Carousell and OfferUp - mobile-first companies that are still growing rapidly.

The report includes a detailed overview of global classifieds/marketplaces - trends, consolidation, the rise of (and threats posed by) Facebook, Google and Amazon, data-driven technologies that may fundamentally change the way classified/marketplace companies sell to their major customers, and more. This is where our in-house intelligence and global analyst network delivers industry-leading insights.

It’s important to note that this report is built to cover only horizontal classified/marketplace companies, not the verticals that focus on one category. We publish separate annual reports each year, of course, on automotive, real estate and recruitment advertising.

Five of the top classified groups are profiled, with many more. Is Craigslist still the most profitable classified venture globally? How is the Schibsted corporate restructure going? We also look at Facebook and Amazon to see if those digital giants are making headway in classifieds.

As always, we publish our reports to stay smart - and to keep you smart - about how the classified/marketplace world is changing. We consult with many of the companies we report on, and many we don’t, and many of the leading classified investors worldwide. If you run a classified site, provide technology to them, or invest in them (or are considering it), find out how we can help you. Call us, email us or meet us at one of our three conferences. We’ll be happy to talk.
