Myntra CEO Ananth Narayanan has said the e-commerce market will be high on growth, which will help the e-commerce player become profitable in segments, including fashion, and grow at about 65-70 per cent.

He has said that the e-commerce market in India will be worth about $70 billion by 2020 and players will be investing around $1-2 billion over the next few years, mainly in tier II cities and towns.
