A Demand for E-Commerce
We could soon see a vast increase in the number of people who choose to buy their products and services online rather than going to the high street.
Sales on the high street were seen to fall by 0.4% in February when compared with last year; further figures indicate that consumers are walking away from their high street stores in mass numbers following the governments hike in VAT from 17.5% to 20%.
Furniture was heading the list of costly goods which were simply not being bought by shoppers, clothing and footwear retailers were next to suffer and this is only the beginning of the struggle for these industries. With the state of the society at the moment people do not want to spend money with jobs hanging in the balance, rising fuel bills and day to day living costs increasing, spending simply isn’t possible.
However, despite the current condition of the economy European online retail sales have grown by 18% in 2010 and are predicted to grow by 13% in 2011 reaching a total of around £80bn as part of a five year forecast.
