Global Retail and E-Commerce Sales Forecast Thru 2018

Despite more than one trillion dollars in online purchases worldwide in 2013, e-commerce accounted for just 5.1% share of total retail spending, per eMarketer. That share grew to an estimated 5.9% this past year on the back of a 22.2% increase in e-commerce spending, and will continue to grow through 2018, when it will reach 8.8%. Even so, that means that $10 of every $11 in retail spending will be in brick-and-mortar locations rather than online. E-commerce’s share of total retail sales varies considerably by country though: by the end of the forecast period, e-commerce sales are expected to comprise 18% of retail sales in the UK (the highest of any country), but just 1.4% share in India and Indonesia. In the US, e-commerce’s share will be right about the global average, at 8.9%.

UK e-mailers Open On Mobile

eMarketer spoke recently about mobile’s role in helping maintain the relevance of email marketing in the UK. December 2014 research from email intelligence firm Return Path provided further evidence of the disruptive nature mobile is having on consumer emailing habits.

It found that the percentage share of email opens in the country across mobile, desktop and webmail platforms was heavily weighted in favor of mobile, with 62% of Return Path UK client emails opened that way. This was well ahead of any other country tracked; the US was some way behind, with a 48% share of opens coming via mobile. Broader industry metrics may vary, of course, but the consensus view—backed by other data points cited in the eMarketer article referenced earlier—is that mobile should now be considered a central part of any email marketing strategy.

But with this consideration comes many potential pitfalls. On the marketer side of the equation, rendering emails mobile-ready and all the related issues that come with that will, of course, signal greater costs. Meanwhile, on the consumer side of things, you’ll need to be wary of intruding on a day full of consumption—much of it on mobile. Spamming consumers on their mobile devices with unoptimized emails could have a damaging effect. While the email marketing trend is clearly headed to the mobile realm, the catchword is “caution.” Porting your regular email marketing strategy wholesale to mobile might not be the best move.
