The Italian market is predominantly one of interaction between businesses (B2B), generating a value of nearly 2.7 trillion euros, of which 2.2 trillion euros relate to domestic transactions and about 500 billion euros to transactions outside Italy. B2B in Italy accounts for 75% of Italy’s total turnover of 3.6 trillion euros. Digital B2B forms the foundations for Italy’s digital status as a country. In 2016, B2B e-commerce was worth about 310 billion euros, up by 19% on the previous year, but still somewhat low in absolute terms (only 14% of the total value of B2B transactions). The Supply Chains that have the highest share in this value are the automotive, white goods & consumer electronics, pharmaceutical, convenience goods, electrical equipment, and textiles, clothing & footwear. The report offers an overview of the digital solutions that companies use in their business during the pre-transaction and transaction phases (digitalisation solutions belonging to the procure-to-pay cycle) and in the business between customers and suppliers (e-supply chain collaboration solutions). Further material concerning the level of digitalisation in these SupplyCchains will also be covered in the report.
