The Caribbean is experiencing a significant shift in its retail landscape, driven by a digital revolution. With over 79% of Caribbean people using the internet almost every day, equating to approximately 38.7 million people out of a population of 49 million, the online sphere has become a vital component of daily life. These individuals are engaging in various online activities, including shopping, learning, socializing, entertainment, and working. However, a troubling trend has emerged: international retailers are capturing a substantial portion of this online audience, leaving local Caribbean retailers struggling to keep up. This article explores the urgent need for Caribbean retail businesses to become fully accessible and attractive to remain competitive in the face of global e-commerce giants.

The Digital Divide in Caribbean Retail

Our research at Cibigi has highlighted a critical issue facing Caribbean retailers: the lack of robust digital infrastructures and technologies. International retailers, armed with advanced e-commerce platforms and sophisticated marketing strategies, are outpacing local businesses in capturing the attention of Caribbean consumers and beyond. This digital divide is growing, and unless local retailers adapt, they risk losing significant market share to foreign competitors.

The Importance of Online Presence

An effective online presence is no longer optional for retail businesses; it is essential. Consumers today expect to browse and purchase products online with ease. They seek seamless, convenient, and rewarding shopping experiences. For Caribbean retailers, this means investing in technologies that not only showcase their products but also provide an engaging and efficient shopping experience.

The Challenges Faced by Local Retailers

Local retailers in the Caribbean face several challenges in adapting to the digital age. These include limited access to advanced e-commerce technologies, lack of expertise in digital marketing, and insufficient resources to invest in online infrastructure. As a result, many businesses are unable to compete with the polished, user-friendly websites and mobile apps offered by international retailers.
