I don’t think that Alibaba will rub shoulder with Amazon. Amazon is father to Alibaba.

These two big giants of e-commerce industry are competing against each other to win the global e-commerce Market.
It seems that Alibaba is likely to outperform Amazon not in the nearterm, in the medium to long term.
Alibaba is able to put up more products than amazon for its consumers, due to its business model,
Alibaba has also lot of room to grow in other non-core business….

I would have thought that Amazon was untouchable to but when you see what Alibaba is proposing with its stimulus package of investing $15billion into the European market over the next few years it really isnt messing around. Amazon will struggle to break into the Chinese market whereas if Alibaba plays its cards right it could sweep across the western world very quickly. I would probably buy a few shares in Alibaba just for the possibility of what might happen.

If Alibaba continues at this pace, it will not only catch up with Amazon but may surpass it.

Amazon remains the father to Alibaba. Is very hard for Alibaba to outsmart Amazon.

Bezos v Ma, interesting. There may come a day where Alibaba will surpass Amazon. It may take a few years but I would not dismiss it as I am sure Jack Ma is a very driven person.

It may, it may not. Depending on how strategically Alibaba position itself and how amazon probably relaxes.

Nothing is impossible. However, if Alibaba is progressing to catch up with Amazon, then, Amazon will be breaking new record.

Nothing is impossible, Amazon started 5years early before Alibaba, but the way Alibaba is running his business and the speed he is going is suprising. Now we have started comparing them eventhough they have not started at the same time. What will happen after 100 from now. If Alibaba plays its cards wisely he can dominate western countries, China, even in Africa.

Probably to add onto my earlier comments, the phrase catching up is too big to use. Because, with advances in technology, I don’t think that Amazon will just be waiting for Alibaba in a static position to catch up with it. We might be reading and possibly see what Alibaba is doing in order to advance but I guess Amazon might be doing more.

Both Amazon and Alibaba are playing their cards to conquer all the world.we are not saying that one is looking or waiting other. What we know is that each one is doing his best to surpass or dominate other.
I’m sure with all the potential I’m seeing in Alibaba, he will be the winner in long term.

Nothing is impossible in this world. Factual at hand, Amazon has gone very far for Alibaba to surpass it.

I have heard that Amazon are actually due to face a lot of sanctions over tax evasion and competition law so we may see an impact from that over the next few months. Amazon are primed to make a lot of the next 8 weeks though especially with COVID still having an impact on the high street retail

No one is disputing the fact that Amazon is above Alibaba currently but considering their enviable achievements so far, it is only a matter of time for Alibaba to catch up with Amazon.

Like I said before we not rule out anything, if Alibaba strategies well enough, it outpace the Amazon.

In business,never underestimate your competitor.Let me give the following example between  2004 to 2010,Coca cola brands used to have market share of a above 80 % with Pepsicola products,Pepsi cola started up serious promotion campaigns  ,Coca cola sells reduced by almost 20 %Currently the market is shared by new soft drinks companies and Coca cola is now below 40 %.
