Statistics on Online Shopping

April 3rd, 2015

As you know, online shopping has seen phenomenal growth over the past decades. Just out of curiosity, I looked up the most recent statistics about online shopping by going to http://www.statista.com/topics/871/online-shopping/

Some of the more interesting things I found:

  • There are over 1.4 trillion dollars spent by online shoppers worldwide.
  • Over 191 million people in the US shop online each year.
  • Not surprisingly, Amazon is the largest seller online. The figure of over 67 billion in sales surprised me, however. That’s a lot of money spent online for just one company.

The growth is expected to continue. I read an article recently stating that there will be significant growth in online shopping from 2012- 2017.
