LONDON, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Alphagreen, the UK’s leading marketplace for selling CBD, is launching into six further European countries, following its hugely successful debut in the UK in 2019. Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden and Poland are all set to benefit from the imminent arrival of the new ecommerce platform and technology provider. The development means that people wanting CBD need only look in one place for the widest choice of products, making it easier and more convenient to buy what they want.
With Alphagreen, customers have an unrivalled choice of effective and trustworthy CBD products to alleviate health and wellness troubles related to anxiety, pain and sleep. The CBD market place is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. Growth is anticipated at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40.4% for the period of 2020-20251 . Some forecasts predict that the global CBD industry will reach $20+ billion by 20242 . This is likely to be just the start of a huge wellness trend.
Fifteen per cent of the UK population say they have bought CBD – 7.8 million adults3 . These six additional countries have a combined population of more than 300 million people 4 . If these figures are extrapolated to the new European markets, that’s a huge marketplace of customers using the platform for CBD purchases. It is anticipated that sales across the new markets will reach 25% of UK sales in the first year and 50% in year 2. There is no doubt that sales in these European markets will flourish as consumers search for natural solutions across pain, sleep and anxiety. Sales are expected to quickly exceed those in the UK.
