The developers and managers of B2B marketplaces, called e-market makers, have begun to attract large numbers of buyers and have begun to use the buyers' market power to attract sellers. The long-term effects of these new entrants in markets are yet unproven, but it is expected that benefits from their presence will far outweigh the costs.

Integration service marketplaces - This market will emerge with a focus on linkages and process definitions between trading partners to facilitate process-to-process integration.

"Individual marketplaces will find it increasingly difficult to support broad sets of commerce capabilities required to sustain relationships of differing intensity and duration," Ms. Reilly said. "Marketplaces will have to align themselves strategically with business services partners as well as technology partners."

Marketplaces will find themselves taking on the role of the traditional distributor as well as an application service provider (ASP).
