“17th January, 2017 – £133bn was spent online with UK retailers in 2016, the latest figures from the IMRG Capgemini eRetail Sales Index have revealed. This was £18bn more than the amount spent online in 2015 and meant that the Index registered growth of 16% in 2016. The results demonstrate an exceptional performance for online retail in 2016, exceeding IMRG and Capgemini’s forecast of 11% growth for the year and unexpectedly reversing a trend of declining growth rates over the past few years (see chart below).
For 2017, IMRG and Capgemini forecast e-retail will record a further 14% growth.”
“The strong performance of online retail in 2016 was fuelled by the continued growth of sales made on smartphones. In December, sales made via smartphones were up 47% year-on-year (YoY). In contrast, sales made on tablets were down 3% YoY. Smartphones accounted for 54% of mobile device sales, with tablets accounting for the other 46%. This is a huge uplift on December 2015, when smartphones accounted for 39% of mobile device sales.”
