Euromonitor solution to help drive e-commerce growth

Market research company Euromonitor International has launched a new data solution that focuses on e-commerce, providing businesses with market intelligence and valuable insights to aid their decision-making process on how consumers are engaging with brands online.

The new Euromonitor E-Commerce solution provides online sales data by industry, category, company, brand, and retailer, updated every three months. This data helps companies benchmark performance, uncover growth opportunities, strike the right partnerships and gain a competitive advantage to enhance their online successes.

According to Euromonitor, the global pandemic accelerated growth of e-commerce sales, as companies increased their focus on digital sales channels due to lockdown measures. Consumers spent USD 3.3 trillion shopping online in 2022, 65% more than before COVID-19. E-Commerce is forecast to remain a dominant force in retailing, accounting for 47% of retail growth by 2027.

Euromonitor International Head of E-Commerce Jared Koerten says, “We are excited to launch the new Euromonitor E-Commerce solution, which will provide our customers with the insights they need to make informed decisions and drive growth in the e-commerce space. As e-commerce continues to dominate retail, it is more important than ever for companies to have access to accurate and reliable online sales data. We believe that this new solution will be a game-changer for businesses looking to grow and thrive in the digital age. By providing detailed quarterly insights into the e-commerce landscape in 12 countries, we can help businesses to identify new online opportunities and optimise their digital presence.”

In Australia, consumers spent USD 45.7 billion on online shopping in 2022, which increased by 27% compared with 2019. Forecasted around USD 63 billion in 2027, fulfilment methods including pick-up in-store or online purchases can be further analysed.

Euromonitor International Head of Insights Tim Foulds says, “In Australia, post-pandemic consumers are becoming more mindful of their product choices, origin, and the environmental cost of their food. They also seek budgetary options in the short to medium term.”
