A double digit growth rate above 10% in Western Europe and above 20% in Eastern Europe is expected for 2013, though this growth rate will decrease by 2017. While the growth rate is higher in the Eastern region, sales are much higher in the more mature Western Europe online market: total E-Commerce sales in Europe amounted to nearly two hundred billion Euros in 2012 and are expected to reach over 300 billion by 2016, but the total for the Eastern region is expected to reach just over 50 billion euros that year. Cross border shopping is a growing trend in the EU, reaching over 10% of online shoppers in 2012, a figure expected to double by 2015.
Western Europe are considered mature B2C E-Commerce markets
B2C E-Commerce sales in the United Kingdom reached a significant double digit figure in billions of Euros in 2012, and further growth is expected. One on the main trends driving online shopping in the UK is mobile commerce: the share of mobile purchases on total B2C E-Commerce sales doubled in 2012. Major online sales players such as Amazon, Argos, Next, and Tesco have a significant share of traffic generated through the mobile channel.
In France, B2C E-Commerce sales approached half a hundred billion Euros, reflecting double digit growth in 2012. Amazon, Cdiscount, La Redoute and FNAC are among the leading online sellers in France, but the market is diverse, as large players account for over 2/3 of the market, but the top 10 for less than half.
In contrast to the general economic situation in Italy and Spain, E-Commerce has experienced healthy growth in those countries, reaching a double digit figure in billions of Euros.
