The API economy has exploded over the past
decade, with platform companies such as Google,
Expedia, eBay and Facebook deriving much of their
market power from the APIs they offer to their
partner ecosystems. One of the best examples of
the companies powering their growth through APIs
is Expedia – the e-commerce travel platform
provider with revenues of US$12 billion (as of 2019).
Expedia1 Affiliate Network (EAN) and Expedia
Partner Central (EPC) provide the API-based tools
and technology that 10,000 partners in 33 countries
use to turn their web traffic into hotel bookings and
happy customers, thus generating over 85% of
Expedia’s revenues.
