MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian online marketplace Snapdeal has raised $200 million in a fresh funding round led by Canada’s Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, the company said.

The latest fund-raising follows $500 million raised last August in a round led by Alibaba Group Holding BABA.N, SoftBank Group Corp 9984.T and Foxconn 2317.TW.

The e-commerce market in India is expected to grow to $220 billion in the value of goods sold by 2025, from an expected $11 billion this year, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said in a recent report.
