eBay Market Share is Sinking | Will The Legacy Auction Platform Survive?
Mar 15, 2022

Co-author of the best-seller Modern Monopolies. Platforms like Facebook and Google are 21st century monopolies.

A recent marketplace report shows that eBay's eCommerce market share has now sunk below 5%. Is this a natural result of the meteoric growth of eCommerce in the U.S. or a sign that eBay is failing? I don't think you can blame this completely on eBay but there are certainly areas we've seen eBay continually fail to grow its platform over the past decade. Frankly, I think there's a long list of failures by leadership at eBay that have put the auction marketplace into a stagnant position lacking in innovation. What happened to eBay's early lead in eCommerce? I think a lot of this comes down to eBay lack of competitive recognition of vertical specific marketplaces
