Amazon could reach $2.5 trillion by 2024, new report says
Following a new report by MKM Partners, it has been reported that US-based e-commerce company, Amazon, could reach $2.5 trillion in stock market value by 2024, according to CNBC.
On Wednesday (22nd August), Rob Sanderson of MKM noted that Amazon Web Services (AWS) could be worth $1 trillion over the next six years, beating the current market cap of the whole company which is valued at $929bn.
Mr Sanderson wrote: “We still think that AMZN is the best long-term growth investment available to investors today.”
Mr Sanderson believes Amazon will achieve a greater chance of maintaining profitability after the company invested substantially on fresh food delivery.

The report also saw predictions that AWS will make up 32% of Amazon’s $88bn profit by 2025, while demonstrating a 35% operating margin by 2024.
It is also anticipated that Amazon will hold 14.5% of the US retail market that will see the company pull ahead of Walmart by 2025, according to Mr Sanderson.
The news comes after Apple became the first company to reach a trillion dollars earlier this month.
