IndiaMART, India's largest online marketplace connecting buyers and suppliers announced that 60 per cent of its business is supported by visitor's traffic through its mobile app and mobile website.

Apart from the top 8 cities, IndiaMART mobile app has witnessed significant traffic from cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Indore and Surat. India is a mobile-first internet country for a large portion of the population.

Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities along with other parts of rural India have been witnessing phenomenal growth in smartphone usage, helped in a major part by improvement in internet penetration and affordability.

Dinesh Gulati, Director, IndiaMART said, "The user base on IndiaMART's marketplace comprises of over two crore buyers. B2B buying is following the B2C buying trend where mobile is becoming the dominant medium for accessing internet. As per the recent IAMAI report, year on year (YoY) growth in mobile internet users has been 65 per cent in urban areas and 99 per cent in rural areas. Interestingly, now 90 per cent of users who access internet through mobile consider it as the primary device for accessing Internet.
