CloudCommerce Comments On $3.5 Trillion Global E-Commerce Forecast

Recent Report From Market Research Firm EMarketer Outlines Five-Year Potential Growth For E-Commerce Industry

SANTA BARBARA, CA–(Marketwired – December 15, 2015) – CloudCommerce, Inc. (CLWD), focused on building and maintaining powerful e-commerce stores for leading brands, today commented on a recently released industry report that global e-commerce purchases are expected to exceed $3.5 trillion by 2019.

A ccording to market research firm eMarketer, worldwide consumers will spend $1.672 trillion online this year, and by 2019, eMarketer projects online purchases will more than double to $3.551 trillion, which will comprise approximately 12.4% of overall retail sales of $28.550 trillion.

Intense pricing competition among Amazon.com, Wal-Mart, and other leading online merchants is also helping fuel e-commerce growth in the U.S. The United States is projected to maintain its position as the second-largest retail e-commerce market in 2018, reaching an estimated $500 billion that year.

The Asia-Pacific market is growing faster than any other region, at a rate of 35.2% per year. It is estimated that much of that growth will come by way of consumers in rural areas accessing e-commerce stores from mobile devices. China is anticipated to exceed $1 trillion in retail e-commerce sales by 2018, accounting for more than 40% of the total worldwide.

In the UK, more than 73% of the population will make a purchase online this year. E-commerce accounts for 13.0% of total retail sales in the UK, a metric higher than any other country. This high degree of e-commerce shopping ranks the UK as the third-largest e-commerce market worldwide.

“This report from eMarketer is very exciting news for our industry,” said CloudCommerce CEO Andrew Van Noy. “We see this as further evidence that our company is operating in an incredibly large market. We can gain a better understanding from this report as to which regions and specializations we should focus on in our growth-by-acquisitions strategy.

Online Shopping Beats Traditional Brick-And-Mortar Retail On Black Friday Weekend

National Retail Federation Black Friday Weekend Survey Shows Major Shift In Customer Habits

SANTA BARBARA, CA–(Marketwired – December 01, 2015) – CloudCommerce, Inc. (CLWD), a global provider of cloud-driven e-commerce and mobile commerce solutions, today commented about a recently released industry survey reporting that for the first time ever, more Americans shopped online than at brick-and-mortar stores over Black Friday weekend.

According to the National Retail Federations’ Thanksgiving Weekend Survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, roughly 103 million Americans shopped online over the Thanksgiving-Black Friday weekend, compared to the 102 million who visited physical stores.

This year, many stores discarded traditional Black Friday plans, anticipating that consumers were going digital, and that major sellers, such as Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target, all posed a significant threat. The major sellers rolled out Black Friday deals early on Thursday morning, hours before shoppers could access the same discounts in physical retail stores. And on Sunday, many retailers, including Walmart and J.C. Penney were offering their Cyber Monday deals, effectively turning the event into Cyber Sunday.

RetailNext estimated that in-store brick-and-mortar sales across the industry actually fell 1.5% on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but retailers with strong e-commerce operations made up for it with online sales. This marks the first time in history that e-commerce shopping has outpaced brick-and-mortar purchases during the biggest shopping weekend of the year.

Adobe reported that e-commerce sales rose 19% between Thanksgiving and Saturday to hit $6.1 billion, with mobile commerce setting a new record, taking a 34 percent share of overall online sales.

“This is truly a seminal event in American culture,” said CloudCommerce CEO Andrew Van Noy. “E-commerce has now fully shifted to become the primary preference for shoppers. We have seen this coming for a long time, and the numbers we see today further validate our growth-by-acquisition business plan here at CloudCommerce.”
