Fastest Growing:

Snapdeal has done well since its launch of two years back, they are capturing around 70%market in coupon business. Its subscriber base has reached up to 1million.Its not small number considering India’s internet industry market, which is still not as big as in US. Snapdeal is covering more than 50 cities across India with 50,000 retailers on their site.

Major Concern:

We think Snapdeal has got funding at right time.Why? Because just few weeks back Groupon has also entered in Indian market by acquiring soSasta site(which is also offering 50%to90%discount coupon). Sosasta work around 11 cities at present in india. (Sasta” in Sanskrit mean “cheap).

So, Snapdeal have now one big competitor which can capture their market fast.
