Ecommerce spending jumped 9% to $227.9B in the US

As I track the evolution of e-commerce, I found these results coming from Comscore pretty interesting.

e-commerce revenue reached $227.6B for the entire year, growing 9% compared to 2009, and varies per industry:

  • travel e-commerce up 6% to $85.2B
  • Retail (non travel) up 10% to $142.5B
  • Top growing category: Consumer Electronics +19% (flat panel TV and mobile devices are first)
This signals a recovery since the end of 2008, after a two years depressed situation due to the economic downturn. The 2010 holiday season was at a peak with a 12% growth, reinforced by some promotional activity - most notably free shipping. The Cyber Monday (Nov 29th) did peak at $1.028B surpassing for the first time the $1B mark. Groupon.com attracted 10.7M unique visitors in December, up 712% vs 2009.

Interesting evolution since my post e-commerce revenue over $100B back in January 2007 i.e. it more than doubled since 2006 even with a major downturn in between.

So, how is your e-commerce strategy going? Maybe a good time to revisit if you have one and definitely start one if you haven't.

Mont Ville project was won in a bidding war by an astonishing tender of $ 301.2 million that was a real statement of the confidence they have in the project. Space is set for not only the residential condos but also complimentary commercial areas that will make Montville a hybrid project second to none. The Montville is located at the heart of Singapore’s district 23 and just a stone’s throw away from the vibrant and ever growing Jurong East Regional center which has a host of every amenity needed by man.
