Description

 “E-commerce is dynamic but maturing, and it now accounts for almost 5% of all retail sales. Amazon is the largest player and is extending its lead, although it has a formidable rival in the shape of local operator, Cdiscount. We have seen a number of acquisitions recently, with smaller, weaker players being snapped up by other retailers as they jostle for market share. Drive (click & collect) services dominate grocery, but we are now seeing growth in home delivery too. Marketplaces, where third party retailers sell via larger host websites, are a key driver of growth for the sector.”

– Natalie Macmillan, Senior European Retail Analyst

The report looks at the following areas:

  • Price becoming less important as the online and offline worlds converge
