Providing the most comprehensive and up-to-date information and analysis of the Online Retailing market, and the behaviours, preferences and habits of the consumer.
Mintel has the answers you’re looking for
What are the key challenges facing the industry and how fast are its rates of growth? Who is the consumer and what do they want? Where are the opportunities, where are the risks and what lies ahead?
Mintel’s Online Retailing – Europe, July 2018 focuses on the five major economies in Europe, though we do also include estimates for 13 smaller, but important economies in the Executive Summary – The Market section. In total these countries account for around 95% of all European retail sales, excluding Russia. Online retailing is developing fast, even in the most developed online markets. But the level of development varies considerably and, in general, southern Europe lags well behind Northern Europe.
The report provides market size data and forecasts for 18 European countries from 2013 to 2023, and includes profiles of 17 major online/multichannel retailers.
The five major economies are looked at in detail: the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain are each covered in separate country sections, which are also available for purchase as individual reports. These countries include extensive consumer research commissioned exclusively for our report(s).
For our consumer research this year we asked questions on the following topics:
- Which products consumers have bought online in the last 12 months
- The retailers used for online shopping in the last 12 months
- Importance of various features of online retailers
- Membership of Amazon Prime
The UK report includes these questions and looks at the issues in greater depth.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Richard Perks, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Online is growing fast and it will continue to do so. It is still immature, even in the more developed countries, such as the UK and Germany, and in many sectors, especially fashion, the established store-based players have yet to mount an effective counter attack. But the example of the books sector shows that there will be a limit to the growth of online, though we will not try to guess what that will be.
