Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Jane Westgarth, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Online retailing accounts for 12.4% of sales through household goods stores and 18.5% of all consumer spending on the home. Online sales of goods for the home have grown at a rapid rate, growing share of consumer spending, while sales through stores have been relatively stable over the same time period. This shift to shopping online is part of a wider pattern of changing shopping behaviour. Non-store retailing, including Amazon and other pureplay internet sellers, have shown the highest rate of growth in the past five years, prompting store-based retailers to raise their efforts to compete by improving their own web-based services.
