2006 online spending strong

Posted by Michael Bloch in ecommerce (Wednesday January 25, 2006 )

Figures released by Comscore Networks show that online spending (non-travel) from January 1 to 20 is 33 percent higher than for the same period last year.

The big winners so far this year:

Event Tickets – up 50%
Consumer Electronics – up 43%
Sports and Fitness – up 41%
Apparel and Accessories – up 38%

Looks like another big year for ecommerce- makes you wonder how we’ll all react when growth rates become comparable with good growth years for bricks and mortar retail sales – will we all panic and say the sky is falling? :)

Total online spending for 2005, including travel, eclipsed 143 billion dollars, which represents an increase of 22% on 2004.
