In this time of volatile stock markets and economic reports, it’s good to see an industry with consistent growth. eCommerce sales continue to gain share of total retail sales numbers in the US. In the second quarter of 2011 eCommerce sales were up 17.6% year over year, while total retail sales increased 4.6% in the same period (According to the U.S. Census Bureau). In the graph below you can see a clear trend. eCommerce sales are showing consistent growth since 2002. These percentages total at $44.2 billion in eCommerce sales in Q2 of 2011. As online shopping becomes more popular and companies are able to offer better shopping experiences, these numbers look like they will continue to stick to this trend for years to come.
